THE APPLICATION OF PSYCHOANALYTIC CONCEPTS OF PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT TO THE EDUCATIVE PROCESS.
FIELD, KAY; SCHOUR, ESTHER
KNOWLEDGE OF PSYCHOANALYTIC EGO PSYCHOLOGY CAN BE USED BY EDUCATORS TO PROMOTE MORE EFFECTIVE TEACHING OF CHILDREN IN THE GROUP SETTING OF THE CLASSROOM. THIS THEORY WAS THE BASIS OF THE TEACHERS TRAINING PROGRAM ESTABLISHED BY THE CHICAGO INSTITUTE FOR PSYCHOANALYSIS. THE PROGRAM INVOLVED FIVE SEMINARS AT WHICH TEACHERS PRESENTED CASE SUMMARIES BASED ON CURRENT CLASSROOM PROBLEMS. THE CASES WERE USED AS POINTS OF DEPARTURE FOR TEACHING APPROPRIATE THEORY APPLICABLE TO OTHER CHILDREN. CONSULTATION WAS ALSO PROVIDED ON THE INDIVIDUAL CHILD. THE TRAINING PROGRAM UTILIZED TEACHER OBSERVATION AND TEACHER INTROSPECTION AS INSTRUCTIONAL TOOLS. SINCE MANY OF THE CONCEPTS TAUGHT RAN COUNTER TO TRADITIONAL EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY AND PRACTICE, THEY ACTIVATED ANXIETY AND PERSONAL CONFLICT IN TEACHERS. THE LEADER, HOWEVER, BY ACCEPTING AND RESPECTING THE TEACHERS' FEELINGS, MINIMIZED THE ANXIETY. PSYCHODYNAMIC THEORY WAS ALSO USED TO HELP TEACHERS BECOME MORE SENSITIVE AND TOLERANT OF THEIR PUPILS. FINALLY, EDUCATIONAL TECHNIQUES FOR MEETING THE CHILD'S NEEDS WERE DEVELOPED BY THE TEACHERS IN COLLARBORATION WITH THE LEADER. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE 44TH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN ORTHOPSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION (WASHINGTON, D.C., MARCH 22-25, 1967). (CG)
