Emotional Problems in Study and Behavioral Methods for Treatment.
Wark, David M.
Emotional problems may be the motivation for many students to seek help at a college reading and study skills center. Many students appear to show actual physical and psychological discomfort when involved in the act of reading and studying. If tension creates a problem, then one would like to determine (1) how the student learned to be tense when reading and studying and (2) how that tension interferes with the student's effectiveness. A method of treatment for anxiety-generated reading problems is (1) to teach deep relaxation and (2) to relate that relaxation to the study condition. Examples of initial emotional problems in reading and treatment techniques are given. References are included. (DE)
