Human Relations in a Changing World.
Morse, Carol Lynn; And Others
This 10th chapter in "Elementary School Counseling in a Changing World" describes ways that counselors can build positive relationships among children and between children and adults. It asserts that elementary school counselors play a major part in developing and maintaining a healthy social climate for children. Four journal articles are included. "Effects of DUSO-2 and DUSO-2-Revised on Children's Social Skills and Self-Esteem" by Carol Lynn Morse, Jerry Bockoven, and Alex Bettesworth describes a study conducted to examine the effects of the DUSO (Developing Understanding of Self and Others)-2 treatments on children's self-esteem and social skills levels 6 months after exposure to the programs. "Peer Counseling: More on an Emerging Strategy" by Alan Downe, H. A. Altmann, and Ione Nysetvold looks at the use of peer counseling in the elementary school setting. "Successful Training for Elementary and Middle School Peer Helpers" by Chari Campbell examines the characteristics of successful peer helper programs and considers the need to tailor peer helper programs to the individual school setting. "Classroom Use of Selected Children's Books: Prosocial Development in Young Children" by Mary Trepanier and Jane Romatowski describes a study which involved the reading of selected children's books and the use of planned critical thinking questions by kindergarten and first-grade classroom teachers during regularly scheduled story-telling times. The chapter concludes with a set of issues for elementary school counselors to consider about human relations in a changing world. (NB)
