A Social Problem Solving Intervention and Consultation Program.
McCammon, Susan; And Others
This document describes a university-related program to teach social problem solving skills to sixth graders at a predominantely black middle school, which evolved to become a systems linkage intervention. The development of the Social Problem Solving program (SPS) is discussed. The following stages are included: entry into the school system, needs assessment, building of a research team, securing permission of the ethics committees and parents, development of curriculum, training of teachers, development of assessment tools, and classroom training sessions. Further discussion identifies the systems which have been linked with the project and relates the strategies and rationale for the linkages. These systems include the families of the students, the school psychology system, the teaching and administrative staff, and linkages with the university staff and students. (Author)
