Tools for Getting out of Trouble
Shepard, Lisa
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v19 n4 p51-53 2011
When first introduced to Re-ED principles 25 years ago, the author was intrigued by the concept of wellness versus pathology in work with troubled and troubling children. Since then, she has worn many professional hats. Her most memorable position has been as a clinician, teaching and supervising both traditional therapists and nontraditional Re-ED teacher-counselors who provide direct therapeutic services on the front lines. While she passionately supports the primacy of the teacher-counselor role, she also realizes the importance of the mental health consultant in Re-ED programs. Her role as a consultant gave her opportunities to implement Re-ED, not only as a foundation of beliefs but also as a clinical tool. Re-ED principles and strength-based methods developed in school and residential settings can be used in counseling adults, children, and families in the community.
