Child Psychology Experiences Program.
Walla Walla Coll., WA.
Recognizing the need for trained teachers to enter the classroom with confidence and professional capacity, Walla Walla College introduced a Child Psychology Experience program. Personnel from several departments contribute to this program. In connection with the child psychology courses, the project features a laboratory/demonstration center where a controlled environment helps teacher trainees become aware of emotion-laden issues, stemming from their own backgrounds, that are relevant in meeting future issues with children under their direction. The program emphasizes effective ways to resolve residual feelings that arise when the trainee interacts with children. It is designed to improve the student teacher's ability to cope successfully with similar situations upon entering the teaching profession. (Author)
