Lambert, Nadine M.
This government publication contains eight papers devoted to mental health and schools. Focus was on the conceptual basis for prevention of mental and emotional disorders in children and adults. Contributions deal with opportunities for school psychologists in this area, the ego process in learning, interventions that develop ego strength, and working with parents of preschool and primary grade youngsters. Two papers present examples of primary prevention activities--talent searching in culturally disadvantaged populations, and the New York City Higher Horizons project. (NH)
