Helping Parents to Help Children.
Lapides, Joseph
Provided are materials from a workshop on parental attitudes toward their handicapped children and professionals' attitudes toward parents. Listed are four workshop objectives: to develop an existential view of parental attitudes, to identify the five frequently observed parent attitudes, to provide experience in working through four parental attitudes (acceptance, denial reaction, overprotectiveness, and disguised and overt rejection) to facilitate parental involvement, and to develop a summary of learnings. Included are information on a theoretical framework of parental attitudes (J. Lapides); five monologues (J. Lapides) which illustrate the five types of identified attitudes; a 15-entry bibliography; a paper on planning a parent program (D. Lillie); a list of areas where psychologists fail with parents (R. Blanco); a table on a systematic approach to parent involvement (M. Karnes and R. Zehrback); and a list of 10 considerations parents of retarded individuals want from a clinic (M. Skelton). (SB)
