Furman, Robert A., Ed.; Katan, Anny, Ed.
The educational program of the Hanna Perkins School for emotionally disturbed preschool children is described in terms of its physical plant, administrative policies concerning staff, selection of cases, and application procedures, and the general objectives and structure of the overall program. The treatment and techniques of interaction with both the child and the mother are presented, and specific case reports are provided. Psychosomatic disorders are examined in the areas of diagnostic assessment, case evaluations, and individual cases. The role of the nursery school is explored in terms of the following relationships: with those children who are in preparation of or undergoing direct treatment, and in relation to the total child (analytic program). An appendix includes statistical information regarding these subjects. (RD)
