Development and Evaluation of an Enriched Social Counseling Program. Final Report.
Long, Thomas E.
This study evaluates the effectiveness of continued remedial problem counseling for those students in a large high school who were disciplined for serious breeches of school conduct and for those showing deteriorating behavior. After being disciplined, the offender was referred to the project counselor for intensive project counseling, lasting for two months. At the end of the school year, each student in the project and an equal number of non-project students were asked to complete a questionnaire regarding the school's disciplinary system and the counseling effort. The project students were likely to feel inadequate in interpersonal relationships yet they were found to accept personal responsibility for school problems. Following counseling the typical project student was likely to show better attitudes toward the school and discipline. Counseling was considered to be of more personal value by the student than the discipline. They appreciated, more than the control group, the help of a counselor. (KJ)
