The Emotionally-Handicapped Child: Altering Home, School, and Social Environments as the Key to Prevention and Cure.
Jones, Vern
The author examines the causes of behavioral disorders that stem from conditions existing in the home, school, and society, and offers specific recommendations for institutional changes which would reduce the number of behaviorally disordered children. Factors noted to be significantly related to emotional difficulties include divorce; the school's emphasis on external motivation such as grades, competition, and fear of punishment; and society's support of conformity and distinct male/female roles. Among author's suggestions are the creation of an adequate number of inexpensive educational and counseling facilities for parents and improved training for teachers and administrators in techniques for effectively facilitating both cognitive and emotional growth in students. The creation of healthier environments in major child rearing institutions is stressed. (Author/SB)
