Sex role perceptions of adolescent males and females : the effects of a transition from a single sex to coeducational school environment by Patricia M Kirwin( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects on the sex role perceptions of adolescent males and females when a single sex school (all male) became coeducational. The subjects (n = 121) were asked to describe themselves, the ideal male, and the ideal female using the Bem Sex-Role Inventory (1981) at pre-integration and post-integration data collections. The data was examined for the factors of prior school experience, target person (self and ideals), integration, self sex role category and discrepancy between the self and ideal perceptions. The data analyses were performed separately for males and females on the masculinity and femininity scales of the BSRI (1981). In the eight analyses for integration, a significant two-way interaction was found for prior school experience and integration for females on the masculinity scale. Further analyses revealed that females who previously attended coeducational schools significantly increased their attribution of masculinity from pre- to post-integration when the data for the self and ideals was combined. The females in the single sex group rated the self and ideals as similar in masculinity. No significant effects for integration or prior school experience were found for females on the femininity scale, or for males on either scale. Significant main effects for target person were found where males rated themselves and the ideal male as significantly higher in masculinity than the ideal female. Males also rated the ideal female as significantly more feminine than themselves and the ideal male
World view and sex-role orientation as they relate to stress among employed African American women by Anita P Jackson( )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Results revealed that sex-role orientation is the best descriptor of stress level. Interaction between socioeconomic level and sex-role orientation was also demonstrated. No significant differences between the stress levels of high and low Africentric world views was observed. These findings suggest that endorsement of instrumental sex-role behaviors may enable African American women to more effectively cope with stress and indicate the need for further research to investigate the comparability of culturally specific and universal instruments and constructs
An experimental study to determine the effectiveness of interventions designed to alter sex-role attitudes of preservice teachers by Marcia Fear-Fenn( )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bem Sex-Role Inventory was used to measure the impact of two interventions designed to alter the sex-role attitudes of 90 preservice teachers. A randomized pretest-posttest control-group research design was employed with two experimental groups and one control group. Treatment group A received information regarding the changing roles of women and men in today's society and general sex equity instruction. Treatment group B received skills-training in assertive communication and decision making. Group C was a no-treatment, control group

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Predicting the career choice of elementary and secondary teaching among college women by Melinda L McDonald( )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research findings in this study indicated that sex-role orientation as well as decisions regarding the importance of family and career impacted the career choice process for this sample of women. It appears that how to manage family, marriage, and career within the context of societal beliefs about women and their role(s) in society was a key question in these women's career development
Personality characteristics of pre-service and effective teachers as assessed by the California psychological inventory by Carole Lewis Miller( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Personality characteristics of pre-service teachers enrolled in the freshman early experiencing program at The Ohio State University : 1977-1985 by Elizabeth T Wosley-George( )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using analysis of variance procedures, significant differences were found between pre-service teachers indicating an interest in secondary and special education teaching, on Measures of Impulse Expression and Control. No significant differences were found among pre-service teachers expressing an interest in teaching between the years 1977 and 1985. Several low to moderately significant correlations were found between personality and the independent variables of the study--age, gender, grade point average, year of FEEP enrollment, and preferred level/area of teaching
Prevalence and correlates of eating disordered behavior among synchronized swimming athletes by Chris Smithies( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the sample on average was 10.3 pounds underweight, 52% felt fat on a daily basis, and 67.6% tried to lose weight in the past year. The most frequent reasons for trying to lose weight were to improve appearance in a bathing suit and clothing, and to improve swimming performance. It was concluded that the high prevalence of abnormal eating patterns may be related, in part, to athletes' attempts to achieve and maintain unrealistically low body weights perceived as necessary for success as a synchronized swimmer. It was also concluded that the low prevalence of bonafide anorexia and bulimia should not distract concern from the high prevalence of sub-clinical manifestations of disordered eating among synchronized swimmers
A demonstration of the animus in creative women by Clare D Lewandoski( )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A naturalistic study which uses a quatitative technique to demonstrate the concept of the animus as described by Carl Jung. The technique chosen is the structured interview. The questions which comprise the interview are referenced to the theory. The respondents for the study are women who have been recognized for their creative activity. The sample includes a sculptor, weaver, theater director, actress, singer, gallery owner, author, choreographer and poet. The concept of the animus is presented as a woman would experience it, including an example from literature, The Wizard of Oz. Examples of how women experience the creative process are also included in the related literature. The responses were analyzed to determine if the levels of the animus had been integrated into the lives of the women. The author, the weaver, the singer and the theater director are suggested as models who have integrated the animus at the highest level
