A Plan for Utilizing Differentiation of Functions in Delivery of Psychological Services.
Holbrook, Sarah F.
Current critical problems in education, especially in urban education as well as societal problems, create the need for re-thinking, re-direction, and re-definition of how psychologists can most effectively contribute to meet the changing needs. This paper presents a plan that is being initiated in Minneapolis. The plan is based on the premise that highly trained psychologists should make their contributions on the broad front of school or system-wide problem solving and problem prevention, and assessment functions and studies of individual children are also an important part of psychological service. The broad objective of the plan is to experiment with the utilization of differential levels of training and function. The functions of the master's degree level psychologists (Level One) include: (1) individual mental measurement, (2) assist in the use and interpretation of group test data, (3) crisis intervention, and (4) discussions with parents. The Level Two psychologists will supervise Level One psychologists, and work on staff developmental programs as well as provide other psychological services in the community. Graduate students and other resources in the community can also be used in this plan. (Author/KJ)
