A Report of A Pilot Program in Elementary School Guidance. 1965-1966, 1967-1968.
Dean, Donald W.; Humann, Julius A.
More preteens suffer from problems of hypertension than ever before; and since personality development is approximately 90% complete at the age of ten or twelve, the need for early identification and proper handling of pupil needs and problems is evident. Using the basic assumption that guidance and counseling personnel might best meet these needs, an idea for conducting a pilot program in elementary school guidance evolved. The implementation of the program is discussed. Five counselors at five schools in Lincoln, Nebraska, participated. A summary of the program including methods of evaluation, and general remarks is given. The program was generally considered successful. Many feel, however, that the counselors needed specialized training, and a section is included on the preparation of elementary school counselors. Also included are narratives written by counselors, evaluation by principals, and a summary of counselors' daily logs. (Author/KJ)
