Toward the Management of Classroom Behavior Problems: An Approach to Intervention in a School System.
Stachowiak, James G.
This program was developed to deal more effectively with behavior problems in children through providing training and consultative services to teachers and other school personnel who work directly with children. Program goals were: (1) the development and refinement of a model approach to intervention within a school, and (2) the development and refinement of methodologies for effective intervention services. Program implementation integrated: (1) the training of graduate students in clinical psychology to serve as consultants to school personnel, (2) the development and testing of methods, for dealing effectively with behavior and learning problems which can be implemented by the teachers; and (3) the building into the program of a research component which provides the opportunity for evaluation of program effectiveness. Consultation was provided through lecture courses, through the formation of problem solving groups, and through the assignment of professionals to the school. The role of the consultant is described. The consultant approach presented is based upon an operant conditioning methodology. (PS)
