ZWEIBELSON, I.
THE NEW ROCHELLE TALENT SEARCH PROJECT ATTEMPTED TO INVOLVE PARENTS AND STUDENTS IN A FAMILY COUNSELING PROGRAM IN ORDER TO STIMULATE MOTIVATION FOR IMPROVED SCHOOL PERFORMANCE AND IMPROVED PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE. THE REPORT SUMMARIZES 6 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, EXPERIMENTATION, AND STUDY, AND IS A COMPILATION OF THE FINDINGS OF SIX DIFFERENT PROJECTS WITH A COMMON SET OF PURPOSES AND GOALS.

THE FAMILIES OF 40 YOUNGSTERS WHO RECEIVED HIGH DAT SCORES PARTICIPATED IN A PROGRAM CONSISTING OF AN "INTAKE" INTERVIEW, AN ORIENTATION SESSION, ONE TO SIX INDIVIDUAL CONFERENCES, AND SEVEN GROUP SESSIONS. TALENT SEARCH PROJECTS FOR THE FOLLOWING 4 YEARS CONTINUED TO UTILIZE THE SAME GENERAL PROJECT APPROACH.
