Psychology Senior pr Much of psychology majors' classroom learning and out-of-class study found a practical application in students' special projects. A special project was required of every senior psychology major. A project involved l50 hours of work in a mental health field, a written record of activities and observations, and a 35-page report. "It gives students the opportunity to work with people and determine whether they want to pursue a career in a certain field of psychology," said Dr. Luther Marsh, professor of psychology and coor- dinator of seniors' special projects. Students who did a senior project had a variety of mental health facilities in the Abilene area where they could work. The students worked as assistants andfor observers. Sometimes they were paid for their workg sometimes they were not. "Fortunately, I got paid," said Kent Mercer, a graduate student now living in Abilene. He worked at the Abilene Youth Center, a residential facility for emotional- ly disturbed adolescent boys. Mercer spent some time in direct obser- vation, but he also worked closely with residents of the facility. "A treatment team would study a certain person's pro- blems and make suggestions for treatments. I would then implement their suggestions," he said. "The whole ex- perience was quite rewarding." if 184 Psychology ojects appl tudies Mercer said his experiences helped him decide to do graduate work. "We spend so much time in the classroom with theory and so little in ap- plication," Mercer said. "The primary benefit from my senior project was ac- quainting me with the real world." Marybeth Perkins, a secondary psychology major from Dallas, dealt with a slightly smaller world when she did her senior project at the Rainbow School of the University Church of Christ. "Freud said your personality is determined by the time you are five years old. I began to see some truth in that as I observed and worked with the children," she said. The Rainbow School personnel taught children from 6 months to kindergarten age. Perkins said she was able to get a good idea of what most of the children, especial- ly the older children, would be like later in life by watching their interactions. "I could tell what children would pro- bably be outgoing and which ones would be the clowns, and I could spot the more reserved children, too," she said. "lt was also interesting to watch when the parents came to pick up their children. The in- teraction between the kids and their parents - most of the time, the mother - gave me a lot of insight to the child's personality." Perkins said her special project served its purpose, which was "to help you decide . , .... ,-..,.az-.r-aan if you really want to do what you've been studying to do for the last three years. Well, I still want to work with children? Dr. Clyde Austin, former special pro- jects coordinator, continued his research on the reverse culture shock of mis- sionaries who return from foreign fields. He presented reports on his work at the 25th annual Bible Lectureship at North- eastern Christian Junior College in Villanova, Pa., Michigan Christian Col- lege's Institute for International Studies and the seventh annual Mission Teacher's Workshop in Dallas. Marsh, special projects coordinator, at- tended the annual American Psychological Association Pre-Convention Workshop in Los Angeles, part of the APA's 89th an- nual convention.
