Conceptual Frame for Selecting Individual Psychotherapy in the Schools
Hughes, Tammy L.; Theodore, Lea A.
Psychology in the Schools, v46 n3 p218-224 Mar 2009
Psychotherapy is a service-delivery that is provided for both general and special education students. This manuscript examines a conceptual framework for determining when to employ psychotherapy within the school-based setting. Decisions are informed by the relationship between problem behavior, therapeutic techniques, short-term outcomes, and overall child development. Both the individual needs of students and the cumulative body of evidence regarding treatment effectiveness are required for intervention selection. The school psychologists' unique training in psychology and education affords the opportunity to effectively use psychotherapy to enhance the academic and social development of children.
