Abstract

This study was designed to test a programmed instruction course directed toward the improvement of interpersonal relationships. The study sample consisted of student nurses who participated in an eight session programmed instruction course which included dyadic interaction. Data were acquired from MMPI scales, the Interpersonal Check List and an author's questionnaire of awareness and understanding. The data did not establish that the programmed instruction produced learning experiences to change attitudes and personality characteristics. However, there were indications in the study from which inferences were made about some Individuals who did change favorably. Implications for further research were discussed.
