Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Historically great amounts of energy have been channeled into the education of minds to perform with maximum effort and efficiency. Often these energy expenditures concentrated on singular cognitive processes in order to develop the intellect, and, in doing so, neglected other parts of the whole self. As the concept of the whole or total self became more accepted, educational programs expanded to include a wider variety of curricula: humanities, arts, career education, psychological education, and physical education as well as the traditional "3 r's". Perhaps because of American society's emphasis on graduation (regardless of level) as an end (rather than a continuation, or even a beginning), the carryover of the idea of a total person tends to drop on a priority list. Goals in life are geared towards career and financial gains, and often become synonymous with success.
