Children's Behavior in a Changing World.
Myrick, Robert D.; And Others
This ninth chapter in "Elementary School Counseling in a Changing World" contains four journal articles on ways that counselors can work to change children's misbehavior and foster productive behavior. "Changing Student Attitudes and Behavior Through Group Counseling" by Robert Myrick and R. Wiley Dixon presents results of a study showing that fifth- and sixth-grade students who participated in a structured counseling group improved their attitudes toward school and their academic achievement. "Project Explore: An Activity-Based Counseling Group" by Kevin Duncan, David Beck, and Richard Granum reports on a 9-week activity group that was effective in improving behaviors related to problem solving, communications, and group cooperation. "Efficacy of Counseling Services in Decreasing Behavior Problems of Elementary School Children" by Harriet Cobb and Herbert Richards examines a series of interventions that elementary school counselors can implement to decrease behavior problems of children. "The Effects of Classroom Meetings on Self-Concept and Behavior" by Sandra Sorsdahl and Robert Sanche concludes, from a 20-week study, that classroom meetings may be effective as both a treatment technique for students with behavior problems and as a technique for the prevention of problem behavior. The chapter concludes with a set of issues for elementary school counselors to consider about children's behavior in a changing world. (NB)
