Parent-Professional Collaboration Content in Professional Education Programs: A Research Report.
Friesen, Barbara J.; Schultze, Kathryn H.
This report describes materials identified during a study of professional training curricula in schools of social work, psychiatric nursing, clinical psychology, special education, and child psychiatry throughout the United States. The purpose of the project was to locate innovative course curricula and other materials designed to promote parent-professional partnerships on behalf of children with severe emotional disturbances and other disabilities. After an initial survey of deans of such programs to locate faculty currently working with such curricula, responses from 71 faculty members provided the descriptions of programs, individual courses, and in some cases published materials that make up the bulk of this bibliography. The materials identified are presented in five sections headed, respectively, Medicine, Social Work, Nursing, Psychology, and Special Education, and names and addresses of respondents are provided to facilitate direct contact by interested readers. Some respondents also sent copies of articles and papers related to parent-professional partnerships; these citations are listed at the end of each section. An appendix lists respondents by state.
