PROJECT TREAT: An Inter-Agency Approach to Serving Severely Emotionally Disturbed Children in a Public School Setting and Sequoyah Mental Health Center.
Garrett, Geraldine H.; And Others
Six papers exploring Project TREAT (an alternative for the treatment of emotionally disturbed children) are presented. The first "Project TREAT and the Memphis City Schools Mental Health Center" (J. Paavola). The paper outlines the services provided by the center and explores methods of classroom management used by the city schools along with information on staff development and the counseling and therapy which the city provides. "An Historical Perspective of the Involvement of the Sequoyah Center" (T. Rhem) describes the Tennessee Re-Education program (training program for teacher/counselors) and lists the six "biases" under which it functions. The author examines the influence of behavior modification and learning disabilities on teacher/counselor training. "Teaching Techniques for Emotionally Disturbed Children in Project TREAT" (C. Randalls and G. Dean) discusses assessment, curriculum, class and behavioral structure, and the least restrictive environment. "Project TREAT: Special Education Division Memphis City Schools" (G. Garrett) explores the relationship of the city schools to the project. "A Teacher Education Course Module: Matching Teacher Style, Program Strategies, and Developmental Behaviors" (H. Rich) elaborates on methods used to facilitate learning. "Community Agency" (E. Montague) clarifies the interactions of three disparate agencies in the success of Project TREAT. (PHR)
