Action Counseling with Suspended Students.
The Cooperative Community Counseling Project was designed to undertake an intensive joint individual and family counseling program to reduce maladaptive behaviors of students who were suspended from community high schools. Counselor training for this program included weekly seminars focusing on specific topics: (1) general problems associated with suspensions, (2) study of employment and educational opportunities for urban youth, (3) study of disciplinary practices in real school situations, (4) critique of counseling interviews and techniques, and (5) production of a documentary film about work with suspended students. The program consisted of individual and group counseling, academic assistance, occupational and educational guidance, teacher descriptions of student behavior, parent interviews and evaluation. Inventory and interview data on students' perceptions of the program indicated some differences between project and control groups. The results suggest that schools should make counseling-related activities a basic part of treatment procedures for suspended students. (GMF)
