A Behavior Modification Approach to Elementary School Consultation.
Callister, Sheldon L.
The Weber Mental Health Center consultation program to schools is described. The conditions under which children might be directly treated at the center are enumerated, but the essential thrust of the program is to train teachers, administrators, and parents the principles and application of learning theory to the management of children's behavioral disorders. Several successful approaches are described: (1) a class was offered through the local college offering credit for teachers interested in the behavioral approach; (2) inservice programs were provided for total school staffs indicating an interest; (3) total class programming was taught where desired; and (4) a comprehensive consultation program with the community Head Start Program was initiated and included teachers, aides, parents, etc. (TL)
