Collaborating with Teachers, Parents, and Others To Help Youth at Risk.
Davis, William E.
During the 1990s, school-based and community-based collaboration efforts to improve the quality of the overall human services delivery system for at-risk children, youth, and their families has grown substantially. The greater responsibilities of psychologists in formulating, implementing, and evaluating school-linked and school-based collaborative models are discussed here. Three major objectives are outlined: (1) to provide school psychologists with a concise overview of contemporary programs and practices which are designed to develop and implement effective collaborative models involving school personnel, youth, families, and community agencies; (2) to identify and to discuss specific substantial obstacles to effective collaboration among school personnel, parents, and representatives of community agencies who work towards more positive student outcomes; and (3) to identify and to discuss specific strategies whereby school psychologists can overcome common obstacles to effective collaboration and can participate more effectively in efforts to promote well-being for all youth and their families. Contains 59 references. (RJM)
