Iowa Perspective, v5 n1 Oct 1979
The issue presents two articles on emotional disturbances and delinquency. The first, "The Many Faces of Delinquency--An Interview with Dr. Richard L. Jenkins," presents the text of an interview with a psychiatrist who is an author and distinguished expert regarding the therapeutic needs of juvenile delinquents. Aspects covered include etiological variables involved in delinquency, diagnosis, juvenile justice, psychotheray, and educational programs for chronically disruptive youngsters. The second article, "Emotional Disabilities--A Cause without Rebels (An Editorial Comment)" by Carl Smith, bemoans the lack of "militancy" among professionals who work with emotionally disturbed children, and briefly discusses some issues that the author feels must be dealt with.
