#[p240] Appendix A
The book "Attention Seeking: a practical solution for the classroom" (Mellor 1997 a) is included as part of this thesis; as it is copyright, however, it will not be part of the micro film record. Those wishing to consult the book will need to obtain a separate copy.
It is intended that the audio tape of the parent interview mentioned in the thesis will eventually form part of a training pack for psychologists and will be accessible through this source, parents have given permission for publication; again, however, this material will not be included in the micro film record. Those wishing to obtain a copy of the tape in the meantime may contact the author at Pupil Support Service, 4 Northumberland Square, North Shields, Tyne and Wear, NE30 1QQ.
Kathleen, the subject of the discussion on the audio tape, is age 12
at the time of the interview and attending high school. Her referral details
describe her, amongst other comments, as "constantly wanting attention"
in class and from her form tutor and head of year. Discussions with school
staff and Kathleen are not included in the tape neither is the follow-up
interview with mother, three months later. Matters gradually settled and
the case was closed soon after this intervention. Further comments on the
tape and the "Eric Harvey method" will be found in the forthcoming training
pack, obtainable from the author in due course.
