Changing the Behavior of School Psychologists: A Training Rationale and Method.
Barclay, James R.
This report is concerned with the re-training of 30 existing school psychologists. It is based on the need for more effective school psychology practice, the emergence of a new social learning approach to school problems, and the development of television techniques for immediate learning. The study utilized an experimental design wherein randomized groups of applicants were compared to test the efficacy of new methods in effecting behavioral change. A number of traditional and new predictors and criteria of behavioral change were developed. Further, both control and experimental subjects were followed up in their setting. The conclusions of the study demonstrate strongly the efficacy of such a program in re-training existing manpower pools for more efficient consultation behavior. (Author/NS)
