GUIDANCE RESEARCH IN ACTION, GROUP COUNSELING WITH PARENTS, MONOGRAPH 2.
SHAW, MERVILLE C.; TUEL, JOHN K.
THE SECOND PHASE OF A 3-YEAR STUDY TO DEFINE AN OBJECTIVE FOR GUIDANCE SERVICES IS PRIMARILY CONCERNED WITH THE INCLUSION OF TEACHERS IN GROUP COUNSELING AND THE CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT OF GROUP COUNSELING WITH PARENTS. THE 22 PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS FROM SIX SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN CALIFORNIA AND NEW MEXICO INCLUDED K-12 FROM ALL SOCIOECONOMIC LEVELS. TO FACILITATE BOTH THE RESEARCH PROCEDURE AND THE DATA PROCESSING, 10 DATA-COLLECTION INSTRUMENTS WERE DEVELOPED, REFINED, AND USED WITH INDIVIDUALS, GROUPS, AND SCHOOLS. A WIDE VARIETY OF DATA RANGING FROM EXPRESSION OF ATTITUDE TO RATINGS OF OVERT BEHAVIOR WAS COLLECTED AND STORED ON PUNCH CARDS. THE ANALYSIS OF THESE DATA WAS CONDUCTED ACCORDING TO THE PATTERN SET BY THE SPECIFIC MAJOR HYPOTHESES REGARDING CORRELATIONS OF THE PERCEPTIONS OF STUDENTS, TEACHERS, AND PARENTS CONCERNING APTITUDES, VOCATIONAL INTERESTS, AND STUDENT SCHOLASTIC PERFORMANCE AS WELL AS THE RELATIONSHIP OF EDUCATIONAL ATTITUDES, COMMUNITY ATTITUDES, AND PARENTAL PARTICIPATION IN THE STUDY. ELEVEN VARIABLES WERE CONSIDERED IN THE HYPOTHESES. ONE MAJOR HYPOTHESIS WAS CONCERNED WITH THE EFFECTS COUNSELING WITH PARENTS AND TEACHERS HAS ON STUDENTS. THE PRELIMINARY FINDINGS, ALTHOUGH PRIMARILY ACTUARIAL IN NATURE AND NOT COMPLETE, PROVIDE SOME INDICATION THAT THE GROUP APPROACH IS FEASIBLE FROM BOTH THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE PUPIL PERSONNEL SPECIALIST AND THE DEGREE OF PARENT PARTICIPATION.
