Training Counselors and Teachers in Behavioral Contracting: Three Years of Outcomes.
Resnikoff, Arthur; And Others
With the increase in demands being made on faculty administrators to broaden educational services, the need for continued training is apparent (Lebsock and DeBlassie, 1975). Drug counseling, special education, teenage alcoholism, and other problems of society surface and simmer in the public schools. In the face of such challenges, a program was undertaken in the early 1970's to upgrade the skills of the educational staff of a suburban St. Louis school system. The training was planned to meet the changing educational needs of the school system by bringing the counselors closer to the "mainstream" of educational activity. There was a perceived need to allow faculty members a chance to work together and to become more cooperative. Training was developed which emphasized interpersonal skills that would be useful between faculty and students as well as between faculty members. The training program was spread out through the school year to maximize faculty contacts and to increase the chance of change. The three papers in this set discuss the rationale for the program, the description of the several phases of program development, and three years of program outcomes. (Author)
