The New Haven School Intervention Project.
This paper reviews a New Haven, Connecticut school intervention project as a model for replication in other schools. The functions of a school advisory committee, parent participation, a mental health team, and a social skills curriculum are described as the principal components of the project. The need for preservice as well as inservice training for staff development is discussed with emphasis on the role of a primary resource person who, as a social science educator, would act as a change agent in the schools. It is suggested that there be three elements of training: (1) a research project in which teachers and administrators receive instruction in research methodology and its application and utilization in school problem solving; (2) staff seminars on child development, applied mental health practices, and curriculum development; and (3) a staff practicum for principals.
