Psychological Consultation: Helping Teachers Meet Special Needs.
Parker, Clyde A., Ed.
Presented are 10 author-contributed papers given at a 1974 conference on the roles, problems, and skills of school psychologists and special education teachers who serve as consultants to facilitate the mainstreaming of handicapped children. The first section contains four case studies focusing on student behavior change (S. Deno), the Vermont consulting teacher program (A. Egner), a systems approach to improving teacher effectiveness in Houston (B. Dollar and R. Klinger), and improving a school organization's effectiveness through coordinate status consultation (R. Johnson). Reviewed in the second section are five different theoretical models of the consultation process: the triadic model (R. Tharp), a systematic eclectic approach (D. Blocher), a process model (A. Brokes), a collaborative model based on mental health principles (R. Cohen), and developmental constructs in school settings (V. Faust). In the third section, a school administrator (G. Young) discusses effective consultation models from a consumer's point of view. Each paper is preceded by an introductory section emphasizing salient points and is followed by an edited report highlighting major issues of the ensuing discussion. Biographical information about the authors is offered in the final pages. (LH)
