Frey, Andy; Young, Scott; Gold, Allene; Trevor, Earl
NHSA Dialog, v11 n3 p135-156 Jul 2008
Although experts in early childhood mental health services make clear the need to infuse mental health services into all program components, many have suggested that the mental health services in the majority of Head Start programs are narrowly focused and that mental health consultants are often used in limited ways (see D. J. Cohen, Solnit, & Wohlford, 1997; E. Cohen & Kauffman, 2000; Forness et al., 2000; Green, Simpson, Everhart, Vale, & Gettman, 2004; Knitzer, 1993, 1996; Yoshikawa & Knitzer, 1997; Yoshikawa & Zigler, 2000). This article demonstrates how one Head Start program has begun to utilize the technology of Positive Behavior Support to develop an integrated model of mental health consultation services. (Contains 3 figures and 3 tables.)
