Impact of an Educational Crisis Center on Some Elementary School Children in a Residential Treatment Program.
Tolliver, James Howard
The study was designed to determine the effectiveness of an educational crisis center (in which students stayed from a few minutes to days and weeks to recover from emotional outbursts and academic pressures) for residential school children (5-10 years old) who had learning problems with an overlay of moderate to severe emotional handicapping conditions. Trips to the crisis center and to the lavatory were recorded for two classes with 12 students, one class with a boy who was peer group leader and more openly aggressive toward adults and fellow students. After the aggressive student was removed from the class, trips to the lavatory and crisis center decreased. Findings showed that children with emotional and learning problems often requested to visit the crisis center when they perceived themselves losing control of their emotions and that they improved in expressing appropriate behavior in the crisis center environment.
