Procedures for Identifying Mental Health Problems in Schools. Summary Report of Workshop - March 1974.
Taylor, Elaine N.; And Others
This paper provides a brief review of the workshop held by the Human Resources Research Organization in March 1974 to acquaint mental health consultants with the procedures and instruments that have been developed to aid them in planning indirect services with schools. Among the specific objectives were: To disseminate information about the recently developed research products in a timely manner; to provide training in the use of the procedures and instruments; to prepare two mental health consultants in each of the selected areas as resource persons for others in the region who plan to use the methodology; and to obtain a critique of the procedures and instruments. The selection of participants was in three stages in order to have people with considerable experience in program oriented consultation with schools. The procedures and instruments developed were intended to: (1) provide the consultant with a broad range of information about the school; (2) enable the principal to organize his knowledge of and perceptions about problems in his school; and (3) provide systematic procedures for the principal, staff members and the consultant to obtain a comprehensive picture of the needs and problems of the school.
