REACTIONS OF PUPIL PERSONNEL WORKERS TO SELECTED SITUATIONS.
ROEBER, EDWARD C.
THE PUPIL PERSONNEL WORKERS SITUATIONAL BLANK (PPWSB) TESTED THE REACTIONS OF 46 COUNSELORS, NINE PSYCHOLOGISTS, 37 SOCIAL WORKERS, AND 52 NURSES FROM A MIDWESTERN CITY SCHOOL SYSTEM TO SELECTED PUPIL PROBLEM SITUATIONS. FOR 10 SITUATIONS, THOSE TESTED INDICATED THREE CHOICES EACH OF "WHAT SHOULD BE DONE" AND "WHY IT SHOULD BE DONE" FROM 15 STATEMENTS IN EACH CATEGORY. INTERGROUP COMPARISONS WERE MADE OF FREQUENCY OF SELECTION AND OF METHODS AND REASONS SELECTED BY 50 PERCENT OR MORE OF EACH GROUP OF PARTICIPANTS. CHOICES AT ALL LEVELS WERE ORIENTED TOWARD DIAGNOSIS. TEAMWORK RESPONSES WERE NOT CHOSEN BY A MAJORITY IN ANY GROUP. THE FOLLOWING HYPOTHESES MAY BE WORTHY OF STUDY--(1) APPROACHES DO NOT DIFFER SIGNIFICANTLY WHATEVER THE COMBINATION OF PUPIL PERSONNEL WORKERS, (2) EACH GROUP TENDS TO GRAVITATE TOWARDS A PARTICULAR METHOD, (3) EMPHASES IMPLICIT IN PROGRAMS OF PREPARATION GIVE EACH GROUP DISTINCTIVE APPROACHES, (4) SPECIALISTS WORK IN ISOLATION, AND (5) IF STUDENTS FROM ALL SPECIALTIES WERE BROUGHT TOGETHER IN A PERSONNEL PRACTICUM AND IF RELATIONSHIPS WERE ENCOURAGED ON THE JOB, SPECIALISTS WOULD USE EACH OTHER'S EXPERTISE TO BETTER ADVANTAGE. THIS DOCUMENT IS PART II OF PROFESSIONAL CHARACTERISTICS AND FUNCTIONS OF SELECTED MIDWESTERN PUPIL PERSONNEL WORKERS, INTERPROFESSIONAL RESEARCH COMMISSION ON PUPIL PERSONNEL SERVICES, RESEARCH REPORT 1.
