Minnesota Symposia on Child Psychology: Volume 1 was first published in 1968. This volume introduces a series which will make available in book form the papers given at the annual symposia on child psychology sponsored by the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota. Each volume will present the papers from one symposium. For each symposium a number of outstanding child psychologists are invited to present papers dealing with their own programs of research. Each participant is given the opportunity of summarizing and integrating the findings of several studies and discussing the conceptual framework or rationale for the series of studies. This volume, based on the program of the 1966 symposium, includes six papers by nine contributors: Jacob L. Gewirtz, Robert D. Hess, Virginia C. Shipman, E. Mavis Hetherington, O. Ivar Lovaas, Patrick Suppes, Lester Hyman, Max Jerman, and Burton L. White. The papers reflect current research trends in both child psychology and psychology in general, including discussions of the socialization of the child in the culture of poverty (Hess and Shipman); extensions in behavior theory based on the study of children (Gewirtz); the application of behavior theory to clinical intervention (Lovaas); the role of imitation in human learning (Lovaas, Hetherington); the use of computers in instruction and basic research (Suppes, et al.); environmental influences on cognitive processes (White, Hess and Shipman, Suppes, et al.); infant development (White); parental influences in socialization (Hetherington, Hess); and the clarification of stimulus functions (Gewirtz, Lovaas, White).
