A Problem Solving Group for Teachers
Mary Elizabeth Hannah
During the last twenty years a variety of models have been proposed for the school psychologist. Most recently, the school psychologist has been encouraged to become a specialist in organizational development (Schmuck and Miles, 1971). However,a review of the literature reveals that most of this work has been implemented by either outside consultants or university trainers and students (Bronskowski, 1973;Schmuck, Runkel and Langmeyer, 1969). The purpose of this article is to describe a year-long teacher’s discussion group that was set up and coordinated by a school psychologist assigned to the building. Sanction for the meetings, the meeting format,and the role of the school psychologist in the meetings as well as an evaluation of this particular intervention will be discussed.
