The Ima Hogg Therapeutic School Individualized Education, Behavioral Management in the Classroom and Psychotherapy for the Emotionally Disturbed and Behaviorally Disordered Child.
Wood, Constance D.; And Others
Three papers discuss aspects of The Ima Hogg Therapeutic School for emotionally disturbed children. The first paper addresses the school's behavior development and management system, which rewards self management with freedom in physical activity and uses individualized target behaviors designed to increase the child's acceptable social functioning and to extinguish antisocial behaviors. In the second paper, the school's psychotherapy program (individual and family-oriented) is described, with special emphasis on play therapy. A case study is provided to illustrate the therapeutic process. The final paper presents an overall view and analysis of the school's future plans. Among aspects considered are criteria for admission, staff roles, team coordination, treatment plan review, and services to other school districts. (CL)
