Establishing Exemplary Personnel Preparation Programs for Teachers of Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders: Partnerships with Schools, Parents, and Community Agencies. Fifth CCBD Mini-Library Series: Meeting the Diverse Needs of Children and Youth with E/BD--Evidence-Based Programs and Practices.
Peck, Alec F.; Keenan, Sandy; Cheney, Douglas; Neel, Richard S.
This monograph examines current standards in personnel preparation for teachers of students with emotional/behavioral disorders (E/BD) and offers several teacher education models that incorporate collaboration with parents and community schools and agencies as key features. Following an introductory chapter, chapter 2 explains the standards developed by the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) with particular attention to the standards for teachers of students with E/BD. Chapter 3 focuses on the roles that parents can play in informing E/BD teacher education programs. Models of family and professional partnership currently in effect at several institutions of higher education are presented. Chapter 4 contains an in-depth look at one personnel preparation program that meets (and exceeds) the CEC standards and emphasizes collaboration with local schools and parents. Two of the major themes of the University of Washington's personnel preparation program are: (1) collaboration with families and agencies; and (2) multicultural competence. Chapters have the following titles: "The Knowledge and Skill Base for Teachers of Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders"; "Family and Professional Partnerships within a System of Care: Exploring the Role of Families in Preservice Development and Training Activities"; and "The University of Washington Preservice Program for Teachers of Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders." (Contains 47 references.) (DB)
