Psychoanalytic School Consultation: A Collaborative Approach
Kerzner, Stephen
Schools: Studies in Education, v6 n1 p117-128 Spr 2009
This article describes a psychoanalytic consultation model to an independent grade 7-12 school that offers a practical and efficient approach to improve school climate. This model may stand alone or complement other approaches, and it can be implemented in both independent and public school settings. It focuses not only on "at risk" students, overwhelmed parents, teachers, and staff but also on the school community as a whole. The process of psychoanalytic consultation emphasizes the understanding of both the overt and hidden meanings of attitudes and behavior in a school. This understanding provides opportunities for active and collaborative problem solving and conflict resolution. Psychoanalytic consultation promotes a safe and caring school climate.
