Teaching Competencies in a Clinical-Child Preventive Intervention.
Jason, Leonard A.
Recently, investigators in behavior and community disciplines have advocated the adoption of positive prevention approaches for life transition problem-solving. Techniques in physiological, cognitive, and behavioral modalities were incorporated into a broad-based intervention program focusing on the acquisition of coping responses to handle life transitions for a group of adolescent high school seniors. It was hypothesized that students exposed to such a program would evidence higher self-efficacy and would use more cognitive restructuring strategies and problem-solving skills. Three classes of inner-city high school seniors were randomly assigned to an experimental (intervention) or control group. Results supported the hypothesis. Additionally, the program was positively perceived by both the seniors and school staff. (Author/HLM)
