Treatment Integrity and Satisfaction Using the Teacher Variance Approach: A Multidimensional Method for Dealing with Teacher Resistance.
Hyman, Irwin A.; Winchell, Kris; Tillman, Timothy C.
This paper presents an overview and rationale for a systematic, multidimensional, theory-driven model of consultation for the school psychologist based on the Teacher Variance approach. Teacher Variance, a combination of five theoretical approaches to preventing, diagnosing, and remediating misbehavior, suggests a solution for the treatment of teacher resistance. The model is a logical combination of predominate theories of personality and behavior, including behavior/cognitive, biophysical, psychodynamic, humanistic, and ecological systems. These orientations are utilized when appropriate in relation to the teacher's preferred approach and when supported by empirical research. Following a description of the model and a brief overview of teacher attribution, case studies are presented illustrating the power of a flexible orientation for school psychologists to employ when conducting school-based consultation.
