Crisis Intervention in Early Adolescence. First Annual Report.
Adolescence Resources Center, Sumter, SC.
The basic premise under investigation is that systematic intervention in a predictable, natural occurring stress situation for population groups: (1) can promote acquisition of competence and coping skills; and (2) minimize pathological response to stress and eventual need for treatment. This study is an exploration of preadolescent development of 131 sixth grade children made prior to the predictable life stress of entry into adolescence and junior high school. Drawn from a random sample of all children to enter a community junior high school, observations of these children will be recorded on their adolescence and junior high entry and progression for four years. Interventions designed to enhance entry success are being initiated and recorded by project staff and key behavior agents prior and during entry. Plans are underway to replicate the checkup with revisions based on emerging information and with new groups over the next three years. (Author/KJ)
