From Multidisciplinary to Interdisciplinary: Training the Educateur Generalist.
Mitchell, Martin L.; Nicolaou, Abraham
Western Michigan University and Starr Commonwealth School jointly provide a training program to prepare "educateurs"--interdisciplinary specialists who can function in a team process of treatment and in a wide range of living and learning environments with emotionally disturbed youth. The training program involves two major components--academic work sequences to develop competencies as a clinical practitioner in special educaton with formation and skills in allied discipline areas, and internship and directed teacher experiences. Internships focus on skills in being a team member, preparation of growth (treatment) plans, the value of regular service learning projects, the value of the arts as creative and productive experiences, knowledge of physical and recreational activities, exposure to outdoor adventure education, understanding of peer group counseling concepts, family/parent involvement, and spiritual awareness. Both formative and summative methods are used to evaluate intern performance. (SW)
