A Study of Child Variance, Volume 4: The Future; Conceptual Project in Emotional Disturbance.
Rhodes, William C.
Presented in the fourth volume in a series are a discussion of critical issues related to child variance and predictions for how society will perceive and respond to child variance in the future. Reviewed in an introductory chapter are the contents of the first three volumes which deal with conceptual models, interventions, and service delivery systems. A chapter entitled "The New Multirealist" explores such concepts as divergent views of reality, authentic being and the normal man, and theoretical concepts of intervention. Included in a chapter on "Counterinstitutions" are discussions of free clinics, alternative schools and radical mental health care. Final chapters contain a summary of concepts examined throughout the book and predictions for trends such as an erosion of the belief in "normality" as used in the area of child variance. (LS)
