Conflict in the Classroom: The Education of Children with Problems.
Long, Nicholas J., Ed.; And Others
The collection of readings deals with teaching and managing both emotionally disturbed children and children who are in a state of emotional disturbance or conflict due to external factors. The readings in the first chapter, selected from fictional and non fictional literature and other sources, illustrate how it feels to be emotionally disturbed by describing what the disturbed child feels like from within. The chapter is divided into three parts: one pictures basic intrapsychic difficulties, the second shows aspects of society which breed disturbed behavior, and the third concerns drug use. Other chapters contain selections on identification and diagnosis of the disturbed child, kinds of help available (individual psychotherapy, therapies with different media, group therapy), kinds of schools and programs available, teaching strategies (the behavior modification, educational, behavioral science, and social competence models and, particularly, the psychoeducational model), mental hygienic management in the classroom, and evaluation of methods and treatment. Chapters are preceded by editors' introductions and individual articles are often followed by editorial comments. (KW)
