Educating Emotionally Disturbed Children: Readings.
Dupont, Henry, Ed.
Designed to introduce the classroom teacher to a clinical teaching approach with the emotionally disturbed child and to encourage critical discussion of current practices and theories, the collection of readings presents selected dimensions of emotional disturbance such as personality patterns, learning disabilities, and minimal brain damage. Techniques of psychotherapy and life space interviewing are described in seven papers, while techniques and theories of behavior modification are explored in eight writings. Also included are 10 articles treating the general processes of psychoeducational strategies including those relating to teaching and diagnostic methods, curriculum, and teacher characteristics. Ten papers discuss aspects of school and community resources and cooperation with specialized agencies, and five papers explore dimensions of evaluation and research. A list of recommended readings relating to the concepts represented in the text is provided. (RD)
