The Antisocial Child, His Family and His Community. The Langley Porter Child Psychiatry Series -- Clinical Approaches to Problems of Childhood, Volume 4.
Szurek, S.A., Ed.; Berlin, I.N., Ed.
Eighteen papers consider the antisocial child. The genesis of his behavior is discussed in terms of psychopathic personality trends, acting out, and sexual disorders; emotional factors in the use of authority and the contribution of controls to corrective learning are described. Efforts at psychiatric treatment are reviewed with reference to clinical and psychotherapeutic work with delinquents, aspects of glue sniffing, and relations between referring sources and child guidance clinics. The roles of the courts, other agencies within the legal structure, and child psychiatrists are treated; also treated are aspects of mental health consultation to community agencies and schools. (JD)
