School Shock: A Psychodynamic View of Learning Disability.
Zitani, E. Alfredo
Learning disability is seen to be a dissociative disorder (school shock) similar to shell shock in wartime. The shell shock model is explained to focus diagnosis and treatment of learning disabilities around the dynamics of the predisposing unconscious conflict, the dynamics in the environment, the mechanism which allows these two conditions to produce symptoms, the rationale of symptom choice, the collaborative application of psychotherapy and educational remediation, and the use of therapy techniques proven to be successful with shell shock and hysteria.
