Counseling and Reading: Historically Considered.
This paper argues that assessments of the correlation between emotional problems and reading have been, for the most part, products of particular historical periods and have been influenced by particular psychological theories--theories that also influenced education and counseling. The paper first traces the history of research investigations related to the correlation between emotional and reading difficulties, showing that the development of the personality (including emotional factors) has long been linked to reading. Three general psychotherapeutic theories that have had great impact on the question of emotional correlates to reading are then outlined, and research about those correlates, with emphasis on the varying influences of the psychological theories at different times, is examined.
