OUT-OF-SCHOOL CLINICAL AND GUIDANCE CENTERS FOR DISADVANTAGED PUPILS IN NON-PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
SEBALD, DOROTHY D.
AN EVALUATION WAS MADE OF A PROGRAM WHICH PROVIDED PROFESSIONAL CLINICAL AND GUIDANCE SERVICES TO DISADVANTAGED NONPUBLIC SCHOOL PUPILS TO DEVELOP THEIR EDUCATIONAL MOTIVATION, PERSONAL ADJUSTMENT, DEVELOPMENT OF SELF-WORTH, AND "WHOLESOME MENTAL HEALTH." CLINICAL CENTERS WERE OPENED TO PROVIDE A RANGE OF PROFESSIONAL SERVICES, AND A TEACHER-TRAINING PROGRAM WAS DEVELOPED WHICH STRESSED CLASSROOM MENTAL HEALTH PRACTICES AND SOUND MENTAL HYGIENE TECHNIQUES. THE EVALUATION WAS BASED ON OBSERVATIONS, INTERVIEWS, SURVEYS, AND OTHER DATA. PRAISING THE ORGANIZATION AND ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE PROJECT, AND URGING ITS CONTINUATION AND EXTENSION, THE REPORT OFFERED SOME RECOMMENDATIONS--(1) BETTER COMMUNICATION BETWEEN CENTERS AND NONPUBLIC SCHOOL PERSONNEL IS NEEDED, (2) THE CENTER STAFF SHOULD BE ACQUAINTED WITH THE CULTURAL AND RELIGIOUS BACKGROUND OF THE GROUPS THEY SERVE, (3) THE NATURE OF THE CLINICAL AND GUIDANCE SERVICES NEEDS CLARIFICATION, RECRUITMENT OF STAFF MUST BE INTENSIFIED, AND EFFORTS SHOULD BE MADE TO FIND MULTILINGUAL STAFF, (4) OTHER SUGGESTIONS DEAL WITH SITES, FACILITIES, SCHEDULES, AND ADMINISTRATIVE DETAILS. APPENDIXES INCLUDE THE ORIGINAL PROJECT PROPOSAL, LISTS OF SCHOOLS AND STAFFS, EVALUATION INSTRUMENTS, TABLES, AND THE EVALUATION PROCEDURE. (NH)
