Learning to Learn through Educational Therapy.
The presentation focuses on forms of therapeutic tutoring (particularly in reading) with children and adolescents. Developments in educational therapy at the Tavistock Clinic in London are cited along with efforts in the United States. Educational therapy approaches to deal with the school dropout program in Holland are also described. The approaches use principles of psychotherapy (including countertransference) as well as remedial teaching (use of a tutor as a model). Educational therapy stresses the capacity to learn, which should be considered developmentally. (CL)
