Using Online Psychological Consultation in Early Childhood Student Teacher Preparation
Epstein, Ann; Dygdon, Judith A.
Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, v27 n1 p47-64 Jan 2006
This paper describes the incorporation of online psychological consultation regarding child behavior in an early childhood teacher education program. The authors discuss psychological consultation in terms of current theory and philosophy in early childhood teacher education in general, and in terms of the professional objectives of this specific program. The experiences and thinking that eventually resulted in the choice of an online vehicle for the delivery of psychological consultation are also discussed. Specific psychological education objectives addressed through this consultation are illustrated in excerpts from actual interchanges between the consulting clinical psychologist and student teachers. The paper concludes with reactions regarding this seminar addition from supervisors and student teachers. (Contains 1 table.)
