A. Counselling Center Directory

The list is aimed primarily at those involved in research
related to cognitive maps and human spatial behavior generally.
The diverse nature of cognitive mapping research and its
applications means that the list could be of interest to
social scientists, geographers, architects, planners,
transportation professionals, and computer scientists, but
anyone from other fields with an interest in the subject
is welcome to join. As well as promoting discussion the list
will serve to announce conferences and job opportunities. At
the present moment the list is open and not moderated in any
form.  The list COGMAP was set up with the following aims:
To draw together a fragmented research community, providing
the basis to exchange recent developments in theory, methodology
and findings, share ideas, establish links and devise potential
collaborations;  To explore and encourage potential and real
applications of cognitive mapping research and examine ways to
convert academic findings into useful guidelines for potential
end-users;  To actively engage in the dissemination of knowledge
and ideas to potential end-users whose backgrounds are as diverse
as planning, education, disability, cartography, transportation,
criminology, retailing, migration and geographic information systems.

A. Computers as Tutors: Solving the Crisis in Education
Book on education reform  I have written a book entitled
"Computers as Tutors: Solving the Crisis in Education."
The entire book is on the Internet at:
The book proposes a sharp change in present education
practices with computers relaying all basic information
to students. It is not, however, just a "Use computers
and throw out teachers" book. It shows how human instructors
would become even more important if they could be relieved
of the many time consuming chores that now beset them.
Thereafter, machines would teach but humans would educate.
Among other points, the book also advances reasons why
computers, despite their immense potential, have had little
impact in most K12 education until now, as evidenced by lack
of significant gains in test scores.

A. Group Dynamics: Theory, Research, and Practice
Division 49 (Group Psychology and Group Psychotherapy) of
the American Psychological Association announces a new journal
dealing with groups and applications of groups in health,
therapeutic, educational, and organizational contexts. The
editors include a generalist (myself, Don Forsyth), a
specialist in psychotherapeutic groups (Gary Burlingame), and
a specialist in groups in organizational settings (Kipling
Williams). The journal will publish work dealing with any topic
that extends the study of groups, including social psychological
processes operating in groups (e.g., affiliation, communication,
decision-making, group socialization), groups in organizational
contexts (e.g., leadership, productivity, organizational stress
and health), and therapeutic groups (e.g., group psychotherapy,
mutual-support groups, family dynamics).  The journal will
primarily publish data-based papers, but scholarly literature
reviews (in the format of the journal Psychological Bulletin),
theory papers (in the format of Psychological Review), and
brief reports (15 pages including references) are also accepted.
Manuscripts must be prepared in APA style, and they cannot
exceed 25 pages, including references.  We are actively seeking
manuscripts for publication in 1997. Each issue of the
quarterly will contain 5-7 research papers, and as many as
6 shorter, brief reports. If you currently are working on a
manuscript that pertains to group processes -- defined in its
broadest sense -- then please consider sending it to us.
Because all members of Division 49 will receive the journal,
distribution should be well over 2,000. I am particularly
interested in receiving DATA-BASED analyses of group-change
processes.  If you wish to submit a paper or just need more
information, email me and I'll send you a more detailed set
of "instructions to authors." Alternatively, you can gather
this information from the journal's web site:

A. Counselling Center Directory
Student Counseling Centers on the Internet Directory.
The Directory is a listing of College and University
Counseling Centers that are on the internet (the web,
gopher, email lists, and telnet). It is easy to use and
even has a glossary for those who are new to all of this.
This is a new and improved directory. The most significant
change is the addition of a search facility, allowing you to
specify search parameters and create your own reports.
If you know of a site that should be included, or of
corrections to the existing Directory, please let me know.
Any and all feedback is welcomed.
