Meeting the mental health needs of children and adolescents -- Foundations of PCSIM -- Components of the PCSIM : an illustration -- Participatory culture-specific intervention : formative (research) phases -- Participatory culture-specific intervention : program (intervention) phases -- PCSIM : challenges and future directions.
This book challenges school psychologists to think broadly about how to best use their training and skills to empower individuals, schools, and communities. The authors urge readers to choose not only "efficacious" programs but also programs that are effective through sensitive adaptation and modification on the basis of ethnicity, race, and culture of local schools and communities. This volume presents the participatory culture-specific intervention model (PCSIM)--an innovative model grounded in theories and techniques of applied cultural anthropology and school psychology. This intriguing model establishes a continuous feedback-driven, self-perpetuating process that balances research with application. It includes an inventive array of participant observations, expert consultation, research, and continuous program refinement that extends the traditional model of intervention into program development.
This book is designed for practitioners, researchers, and graduate students who are interested in meeting the mental health needs of children and adolescents in the 21st century through comprehensive school-based programming. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
