Mental Health Consultation Volunteer Group Psychotherapy.
Hansen, Michael
A method of supplying consultation services to school districts is reported. The philosophy underlying this approach is that teaching front line personnel better methods and techniques of handling mental health problems will ultimately lead to true prevention by way of curricular change, changes in teaching techniques, and clearer definition of role responsibility. It appears that a reality oriented, behavior modification approach in group psychotherapy has usefulness not only in dealing with more disturbing behaviors, but also has a tremendous potential for assisting counselors to better utilize their experience in dealing with normal adolescents. The Hill Interaction Matrix was deemed a very useful technique in determining what is therapeutic in a group. Also, it appears that the concept of volunteer group psychotherapy has a definite place as both a clinical and consultative model for secondary schools. (Author/TA)
