How Can a Community Clinic Serve Beginning Public School Teachers?
A community mental health clinic designed to function also as an inservice training agent for beginning public school teachers is described. The clinic's philosophy is based on the psychoanalytic model and its educational program was planned to serve parents and teachers, particularly those of young children. Area schools came to welcome and expect help from the community. At present 16 elementary school districts, three secondary school districts as well as nursery schools are served. Service is provided in the form of a series of group, grade level meetings and building consultation days. The Title III E.S.E.A. program at Wilmette, Illinois is described. This is an inservice program for beginning teachers. Some evaluation of the work is also presented. (Author/SK)
