Investments in Prevention. The Prevention of Learning and Behavior Problems in Young Children. Intervention Report II.
Van Vleet, Phyllis; Brownbridge, Robert
This report provides the content for the development of guidelines for early intervention within a system in order to identify children and families with problem behavior. The Pace social worker and consultants are discussed relative to the Pace I. D. Center's program. The Pace worker, community-based, acting more as a coordinating influence, can move more flexibly in her enabling, facilitating position, as liaison and as agent, and yet maintain an overall prospective regarding the needs of the Pacer (child) involved and of children in general. By having access to those responsible for the child and the opportunity to offer new perspectives, new channels for action, or new resources to counteract the inadequacies, it is hoped that a more profound and permanent change might be effected in the child's life than might have developed through a direct casework relationship. The psychiatric consultants became involved with the Pace project function relative to intra-psychic and interpersonal phenomena. They also function as mental health consultants in relationship to organizational and community problems and collaborate in a variety of organizational and educational ventures. The research reported herein was funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (KJ)
