International Applications of Ecological Models: Implications for the Future.
Juul, Kristen D.
Visits to 10 schools and residential centers in eight countries were made to investigate international applications of ecological models in the psychoeducational treatment of behavior disordered children. The ecological approach differs from other approaches because it views the problem as a disturbance in the relationship and reciprocity between the child and his or her environment. Each of the 10 programs is briefly described. Seven conclusions are presented, including that ecological approaches place much emphasis on providing a rich and multifaceted therapeutic milieu for the students; that the ecological models combine with and strengthen other approaches easily and effectively; and that research on program effectiveness is very limited.
