A Preliminary Report on Community Collaboration: How It Enhanced Training of Professionals and Pre-Professionals, Involved Parents and Schools, and Expanded Services for Children's Psycho-Educational Needs.
Hassett, Irene D.; And Others
This paper describes a tutoring program in which a children's psychiatric clinic, a city university department of education and school personnel collaborated to provide additional services for underachieving elementary school children who were receiving psychotherapy. An additional aim of the program was to upgrade the quality of the training programs in psychiatry and teacher education. College students in a teacher education sequence did the tutoring under joint supervision of clinic staff, classroom teachers, and college faculty. In about half the cases, tutors worked with the child exclusively at his school, for 2 and 3 one-hour sessions a week; other tutors worked with the child in school and at home. Lectures on child development and small group clinical supervision sessions supplemented the tutors' training. Program strengths and weaknesses are reviewed. (BRT)
