A Study of Child Variance, Volume 2: Interventions; Conceptual Project in Emotional Disturbance.
Rhodes, William C.; Tracy, Michael L.
Presented in the second volume of a series emanating from a conceptual project on emotional disturbance are six papers on general aspects of interventions as well as biophysical, behavioral, psychodynamic, environmental, and counter theoretical interventions. In an "Overview of Interventions", W. Rhodes discusses a framework for viewing interventions, the deviance predicament, intervention structure, and renaissance of caring. "Biophysical Interventions in Emotional Disturbance", by L. Kameya, covers treatment and management of genetic disorders, and neurological and biochemical factors (such as schizophrenia research). Another paper by L. Kameya entitled "Behavioral Interventions in Emotional Disturbance" includes discussions on reinforcement theories and applications (clinical, educational, and environmental), and contiguity theories (such as aversion therapy). Basic theories of the psychodynamic approach, the approach in relation to intervention, and intervention techniques are considered in "Psychodynamic Interventions in Emotional Disturbance" by C. Cheney and W. Morse. Among "Environmental Interventions in Emotional Disturbance" described by M. Wagner are remediation, artificial community, architectural, and school environment interventions. D. Burke explains counter theory, identifies the theorists, and clarifies counter theorists' positions on issues in education and proposals for change. Appendixes accompany the last three papers in addition to the usual reference section. (MC)
