THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELOR AND THE DEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH.
MYRICK, ROBERT
THE AUTHOR BELIEVES THAT THE DEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH TO SCHOOL PROGRAMS OFFER THE MOST PROMISE FOR OUR CHILDREN AND THE FUTURE OF OUR SOCIETY. THE DEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH FOCUSES ON PSYCHOLOGICAL VARIABLES. TEACHERS, COUNSELORS, AND OTHER SCHOOL PERSONNEL MUST HELP THE CHILD TO BECOME SENSITIZED TO HIS TOTAL SELF. THE PROCESS OF SENSITIZATION IS DESCRIBED. THE TEACHER PROVIDES THE MOST IMPORTANT HELPING RELATIONSHIP. TEACHERS NEED HELP IN TRANSLATING LEARNING PSYCHOLOGY AND THE PRINCIPLES OF A HELPING RELATIONSHIP INTO PRACTICE. THIS IS THE COUNSELOR'S SPECIALTY AS AN ACTIVE AGENT OF CHANGE. THE MANY WAYS THE COUNSELOR CAN FUNCTION WITHIN THE DEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH ARE SUGGESTED. THE AUTHOR BELIEVES THAT THE PREPARATION OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELORS MUST BE MODIFIED. COUNSELORS SHOULD BE PREPARED TO HELP TRANSLATE LEARNING THEORY INTO PRACTICE, FACILITATE HELPING RELATIONSHIPS BEYOND THE COUNSELING OFFICE, UNDERSTAND HUMAN BEHAVIOR, AND VALUE ITS FULL DEVELOPMENT AND POTENTIAL. THE COUNSELOR'S ROLE AS A CONSULTANT MUST BE EXPLORED FURTHER. (IM)
