Preliminary Handbook on Procedures for Evaluating Mental Health Indirect Service Programs in Schools. Final Report.
Montague, Ernest K.; Taylor, Elaine N.
This study was performed to develop methods and instruments for evaluating community mental health center (CMHC) programs of indirect service consultation to schools. Models for three types of consultation are presented-Staff Development-Client Centered, Staff Development-Agency-Centered, and Project Development. Each model is designed in stages, with purpose, products, approach, and suggested measures for evaluating each stage. For the two Staff Development models, the evaluation instruments presented can, in some instances, be used directly, and in other instances will require adaptation to local circumstances. The instruments consist of questionnaires to determine consultant and consultee expectations for consultation and their final evaluations of outcomes; consultant logs; films of problem children and response guides; and tape record analysis together with instructions for using and anlayzing these assessment instruments. An example of Project Development Consultation and its sample associated evaluation instruments are presented in detail. (Author)
