Teaching Emotionally Disturbed Students to Count Feelings.
Bartels, Cynthia S.; Calkin, Abigail B.
The paper describes a program to teach high school students with emotional and behavior problems to count their feelings, thereby improving their self concept. To aid in instruction, a hierarchy was developed which involved four phases: counting tasks completed and tasks not completed, counting independent actions in class, counting perceptions of the teacher's positive and negative statements to the class during the course of the hour, and counting positive and negative feelings about themselves. By following the steps of the hierarchy, students were taught to count, personalize the counting, identify positives and negatives, and combine these skills to reach the goal of counting positive and negative self feelings.
