Parent Education and Elementary Counseling.
Lamb, Jackie; Lamb, Wesley A.
This monograph serves as an overview of theory and technique for parent training, most specifically through the implementation of programs led by the elementary school counselor and the school psychologist. This document explores the history, basic assumptions, goals, training procedures, training of trainers, and references and resources from a number of theoretical bases including Adlerian Parent Education, Client-Centered Parent Education, Behavioral Parent Education, and the Rational-Emotive Therapy Model. Brief mention of additional models include Psychoanalytic, Transactional Analysis, Reality Therapy, Preschool Programs, and the Haim-Ginott approach. In the sections "Guide to Getting Going," the authors present a set of guidelines and questions to use in preparation for beginning a parent education program in a school. Ideas on program evaluation and sample letters for use in contacting parents are included. Topic references appear at the conclusion of each section. (JS)
