Date: January 1965
Creator: Morgan, Joseph K.
Description: The purpose of the present study was to develop further a semistructured nonverbal projective test to measure juvenile delinquency proneness. The goal in developing this test was to have a measure which would be free of the many limitations found in existing tests and scales of this nature.

The Direction of Aggression and Group Conformity of Policemen, Narcotic-Addicts, and Seventh Day Adventists as Measured by the Rosenzweig Picture-Frustration Study

Date: January 1969
Creator: Gerlach, Herman
Description: The present study was an attempt to measure the direction of aggression among three diverse groups, namely, policemen, narcotic-addicts and Seventh Day Adventists. The second aspect of this investigation was to determine the group conformity tendencies of the three basic groups. The Rosenzweig Picture-Frustration Study was used as the measuring instrument.

The Draw-A-Person Technique as a Measure of Sexual Conflict

The Draw-A-Person Technique as a Measure of Sexual Conflict

Date: January 1968
Creator: Caspary, Arthur Courtney
Description: Since much of the existing research which points to the low validity of the Draw-a-Person technique has used differentiation of diagnostic categories as a criterion, this study will be restricted to a consideration of the Draw-a-Person technique as a means for discriminating between a group of individuals who manifest conflicts in the area of sexual adjustment and a control group which does not show these conflicts in any appreciable amount.

The Effect of an Expressed Level of Aspiration in Determining Performance on a Subsequent Task

The Effect of an Expressed Level of Aspiration in Determining Performance on a Subsequent Task

Date: August 1969
Creator: Hafner, Bruce W.
Description: There have been few investigations employing the level of aspiration as a motivational independent variable. The problem of the present study was to investigate the effect of an expressed level of aspiration on a subsequent level of performance on a cancellation task and to relate this effect to socio-economic classifications.

The Effects of Concrete, Symbolic, and Verbal Reinforcement of the Discrimination Learning of Moderately and Severely Retarded Boys

The Effects of Concrete, Symbolic, and Verbal Reinforcement of the Discrimination Learning of Moderately and Severely Retarded Boys

Date: January 1968
Creator: Johnson, James E.
Description: The present study is an attempt to determine which of several different types of reinforcers is most effective in discrimination learning using institutionalized mentally retarded boys of different intellectual levels as subjects. If one type of reinforcement works more effectively in conditioning one level of institutionalized mentally retarded subject, then that type of reinforcement could be used to greater advantage in controlling behavior than some other, less effective kind of reinforcer.

The Effects of Music and Operant Conditioning on Gross Motor Activity of Profound Mental Retardates

The Effects of Music and Operant Conditioning on Gross Motor Activity of Profound Mental Retardates

Date: January 1968
Creator: Addison, Max R.
Description: It has not yet been demonstrated that music can be used therapeutically with profoundly retarded children. One way these children might be helped to respond to music, and therapeutically benefit from it, would be to use operant conditioning in an effort to enhance gross motor activity and then progressively shape responses until more complex behavior patterns are formed. Once these children can respond motorically in the presence of musical stimuli, continuation of responding may be possible by pairing motor activity with musical stimuli. This experiment investigated the effects of operant conditioning and music on the motor activity of profoundly retarded children in an effort to determine the therapeutic usefulness of music with such children.

The Effects of Musical Stimuli on the Gross Motor Activity of Profound Mental Retardates

The Effects of Musical Stimuli on the Gross Motor Activity of Profound Mental Retardates

Date: May 1969
Creator: Angelloz, Robert E.
Description: It was the purpose of this present study to investigate the effects of two types of music, tonic and sedative, on the gross motor activity of profound mental retardates. The primary objective was to determine if therapeutic benefits resulting from the application of music could be extended to profound retardates as has already been demonstrated with other levels of retardation.
