Orthopsychiatry and Education.
Bower, Eli M., Ed.
A reassessment of schools and education in general from the standpoint of the orthopsychiatrist, this volume attempts to answer a wide variety of questions such as: What does society expect from its educational institutions? What exactly is the educational experience and do we really mean to provide it for children? How can the schools best deal with mentally retarded, emotionally disturbed, and culturally deprived children? If family and peer relationships are essential to educational competence, how can preschool education compensate for deficiencies in these areas? How can reading disabilities be overcome? Represented in this volume are many prominent behavioral scientists dealing with the problems and processes of education. It includes a wide range of the best articles on education appearing in the "American Journal of Orthopsychiatry" since 1957. (Editor/SB)
