Movement Therapies: Foundations And Applications For Awareness And Growth, Jody Lynn Shotwell

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The theoretical and historical foundations of body work and movement therapies are explored. Wilhelm Reich is credited with bringing into prominence the inclusion of the body in psychotherapy.

Distraction And Dissonance: A Model Of The Persuasive Process, Davis Albert Foulger Jan 1977

Distraction And Dissonance: A Model Of The Persuasive Process, Davis Albert Foulger

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

After exploring the successes, failures, and conflicting explanations for results in two communications research traditions, distraction and counter-attitudinal advocacy, an attempt was made to explain these results in terms of a more comprehensive theory. Distractions were organized into classes defined by their strength and relevance to the message, demonstrating how these and other factors affected the persuasiveness of a message. On the basis of this theory an untested class of distractions, cognitive distractions, were hypothesized. This class of distraction, related to cognitive dissonance, was then used to integrate the conflicting research in counter-attitudinal advocacy. On the basis of this theory ...


An Organizational Communication Analysis Of A Medium-Sized Newspaper, Sara Baldwin Howze Jan 1977

An Organizational Communication Analysis Of A Medium-Sized Newspaper, Sara Baldwin Howze

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

A medium-size newspaper in Central Florida was observed for 8 weeks in the Spring and Summer of 1976 and 58 employees interviewed to determine internal communication patterns and measure attitudes toward the communication system, organization and job related variables. A system theory of organizations provided basic theoretical assumptions. Since communication activities occur within the framework of internal organization elements such as structure, objectives, leadership style, reward system, technology, intergroup relations, and individual employee characteristics, those elements were described. Communication activities were reported in terms of message purpose, network traversed, method of diffusion and relationships. Findings indicated that the nature and ...


Eye Color And Its Possible Relation To Behavior, Debra Lee Hollister Jan 1977

Eye Color And Its Possible Relation To Behavior, Debra Lee Hollister

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

A variable that is capable of indicating one's cognitive and motor capacities has been the dream of many researchers. Until recently however, no researcher has seriously considered an independent variable that is obvious among all people regardless of race or culture. This variable is eye color. This paper is a review of the experimental literature in this field and covers many areas including sociability, perception, learning, athletic abilities, and a few medical anomalies. Several alternative hypotheses are also offered as reasons for the obtained correlations. These ideas include culture, learning, and environment. Two other hypotheses are also presented to ...
