Elementary School Group Counseling by Mental Health Consultants.
Cline, Brenda J.; And Others
The effectiveness of an elementary school group counseling program that was conducted in the school setting by consultants from a community mental health agency was investigated. Subjects for the experimental group were twelve elementary school students who evidenced significant school-related problems, but seemed to have more potential for learning either socially or academically than they had exhibited. Three mental health specialists led one and one half-hour meetings, which were held weekly as part of the school curriculum. Academic and attitudinal school grades were used as the criterion for evaluation. An analysis of variance of the grades indicated a significant positive increase at the .05 level in the mean Grade Point Averages of the participating students. (Author)
