The Training of Educational Personnel in Expressive Education. Pupil Personnel Services: Training Professionals to Anticipate the Challenges of the Future.
Elman, Nancy; Gross, Susan
This report presents the theoretical context and the actual organization of training in human development and the expressive media in the Counselor Education Program and an early child-training program. Chapter 1 includes a detailed discussion of the history and current status of expressive development in education. Expressive education responds to specific needs in today's complex educational system by enabling the child to test reality in an environment which encourages him to "try out" creative forms and to expand his awareness of them. Chapter 2 presents discussions of three forms of expression: (1) dramatic play; (2) art; and (3) creative movement. Chapter 3 contains training models for expressive education for counselors and teachers. Classroom activities and reading lists are suggested. Chapter 4 offers an extensive list of resources in child development and expressive media. (KRP)
