The Prescriptive Counselor in the Elementary School.
Rundberg, Carol Williams; Fredrickson, Ronald H.
The Prescriptive Counselor Model, as proposed for the elementary school, focuses on changing specific student behaviors through a particular prescription of materials, activities, and suggestions for teachers, parents, and the child himself. The theoretical emphasis is on dealing with behaviors by observing, conferring, setting goals, developing prescriptions, providing materials, and following up on the success of the prescriptions. The goals of the model are to increase the ability of teachers and parents to work with students and to permit the services of the counselor to have greater effect with more students. The prescriptive counselor translates his concern and care through the concreteness and specifics of the prescriptive process. (Author/PC)
