"New Skills and Abilities to Enable Me to Support My Pupils in a Forward Thinking Positive Way:" A Self-Discovery Programme for Teachers in Mainstream School
Powell, Lesley; Cheshire, Anna
International Journal of Special Education, v23 n2 p56-66 2008
The purpose of this study is to adapt, deliver, and pilot test the Self-discovery Programme (SDP) for teachers in mainstream school. The study used a pre-test post-test design. Quantitative data were collected by self-administered questionnaires given to teachers at two points in time: baseline (immediately pre-SDP) and immediately post-SDP. Qualitative data were collected via open questions at baseline and post-SDP to gain more in-depth information about teacher's experience of the SDP. In addition, observations were conducted at four points in time: sessions 1, 2, 6, and 10. Results suggest that overall the SDP-Teachers had been an enjoyable experience. The results of this study will add to the sparse literature and evidence base concerning interventions for teachers in mainstream schools, particularly interventions that consist of complementary and alternative medicine.
