Mental Health Services in the Pittsburgh Public Schools; 1967-1968.
Richman, Vivien
The 1967-68 mental health services (MHS) program in the Pittsburgh public school system, number of children served, studies undertaken, and other staff activities are considered. A research study of perceptual-motor dysfunction among emotionally disturbed, educable mentally handicapped, and normal children, and two perceptual surveys developed for identification are described. An analysis is presented of the effectiveness of psychiatric consultation with the staff of Project Upward Bound. Corporal punishment in the schools and some alternatives to it are discussed in terms of historical development, various community rules, and other methods of discipline. Consideration is given to nonachievers, the interdisciplinary approach of the MHS program, and to case reports illustrating the lack of adequate community facilities for the disturbed. (RJ)
