The School Psychologist As A Therapist. A Psychological Services Monograph on Psycho-Educational Therapy.
Jackson, John H.; Bernauer, Margaret
The hypothesis explored in this report is whether a staff of school psychologists can successfully provide therapy in the schools to students and adults, even when their previous training has neglected therapy. The therapy program is conducted under the auspices of Milwaukee Public Schools under Title I. Both administrators and psychologists set up the program. Only students with serious problems, a total of no more than 25 per building were seen for therapy. A total of six different therapy programs were offered to the disadvantaged, their parents and their teachers. These programs are described in detail. The criteria evolved for indicating the type of therapy for each child is discussed thoroughly. Techniques used are also presented. The responsibility of the therapist is given, as well as his role within the school. The Volunteer Aide program, the Behavior Modification program, and cognitive structure work are also discussed in relation to the therapy program. (KJ)
