The Use of Cases in the Evaluation of Three Counseling Approaches with Elementary School Children.
Palmo, A. J.
The purpose of the study was to explore the effect of parent and teacher consultation used in conjunction with group counseling on the classroom behavior of first, second, third, and fourth grade children. The instruments selected were in conjunction with the primary purpose of the study; the effect of various counseling approaches on children's classroom behavior. Thus, two instruments were chosen; one the teachers would use to evaluate the children's changes in behavior (Walker, 1968-Walker Problem Behavior Identification Checklist) and a second an objective classroom observer would use to rate children's behavior (Spaulding, 1968-Coping Analysis Schedule for Educational Settings (CASES). The hypothesis that there would be no significant differences among Group Counseling/Parent-Teacher Consultation, Group Counseling, Parent-Teacher Consultation, and Control Group Procedures was not accepted. Results suggest that Parent-Teacher Consultation was the most effective strategy used in the modification of classroom behavior and that CASES was the most valid and accurate measure of behavior change.
