Long, Sandra M., Ed.; Batchelor, Barbara, Ed.
This collection of 11 articles focuses on various kinds of change that children face, and ways that adults can help nurture the development of coping strategies. Situations of change covered are crises of death, divorce, imprisonment, or hospitalization of family members, new environments such as entering school, the birth of a new sibling, and child abuse and neglect. Also discussed are the utilization of community resources to help the child cope with change, and the problems facing the gifted child. (Author/SS)
