GUIDANCE IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL--CHILD CENTERED PROCEDURES AND TECHNIQUES.
NELSON, GWEN
SOME CONSIDERATIONS BASIC TO ELEMENTARY GUIDANCE ARE DISCUSSED. THE PURPOSE OF A PROGRAM OF ELEMENTARY GUIDANCE IS TO PROVIDE BOTH CORE AND PREVENTIVE SERVICES WHICH PROMOTE PROPER CHILD GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT. PRACTICALITY AND ECONOMY SUGGEST THE NECESSITY FOR INCREASED ACTIVITY IN PRIMARY PREVENTION. THE GUIDANCE SPECIALIST MUST WORK DIRECTLY WITH PUPILS BUT CANNOT IGNORE THE TOTAL SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT. THE CONCEPT OF GUIDANCE ADVOCATED HERE GOES BEYOND THE PREDICTION OF POTENTIAL PROBLEMS AND THEIR REMEDIATION TO A PLANNED PROGRAM FOR ALL STUDENTS TO PROMOTE BETTER MENTAL HEALTH AND SCHOOL ADJUSTMENT. WITHIN THIS FRAME OF REFERENCE, THE FUNCTION OF THE GUIDANCE SPECIALIST IS DESCRIBED UNDER THE HEADINGS OF CHILD STUDY AND ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES. CHILD STUDY INCLUDES CASE HISTORIES, OBSERVATION, THE COUNSELING INTERVIEW, INDIVIDUAL ANALYSIS, AND GROUP ANALYSIS. ALL CAN LEAD TO A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE CHILD. GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL PROCEDURES FOR IMPROVING THE MENTAL HEALTH OF THE CHILD AND THE LEARNING CLIMATE INCLUDE CHILD ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES, COUNSELING THERAPY, GROUP GUIDANCE, THERAPEUTIC ACTIVITIES, PLACEMENT, REFERRAL. PRESENTED ARE THREE ACTUAL CASES SELECTED AS BEING REPRESENTATIVE OF THE GUIDANCE FUNCTION. (IM)
