Additional Studies in Elementary School Guidance: Psychological Education Activities Evaluated.
Miller, G. Dean, Ed.
This publication, fourth in a series on elementary school guidance, focuses primarily on three target populations counselors are committed to serve: children, teachers, and parents. It contains a collection of controlled studies and the impact of counselor effort on a variety of important guidance outcome variables: selfconcept, peer status, attitude toward school, and interpersonal communication skills of teachers and parents. In virtually all of the research reported, the positive influence of counselor-led activities is a result of some designated competence applied in a systematic way to a specific need of children, teachers or parents. It appears that psychological education, like cognitive learning, is most successful when learning activities are relevant and presented in an orderly manner over time. (Author/LP)
