Reflections on Deviance in 1984: Selected Papers from the 1984 Midwest Symposium in Behavior Disorders. National Needs Analysis in Behavior Disorders.
Grosenick, Judith, Ed.; And Others
Three papers from a symposium on "Reflections on Deviance in 1984" are presented with particular emphasis on educational programs for behavior disordered students. An initial paper by James A. and Robert H. Zabel entitled "Reflections on Deviance in Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Conversation with 'George Orwell'," presents a simulated conversation with George Orwell who discusses life experiences leading to his views on deviance, predictions in his novel, "Nineteen Eighty-Four," and differences between psychoanalytic and behavioral views of deviance. In the second paper, "Behavior Disorders and the Family in 1984," Roger Kroth discusses the changing structures of American families, reviews recent work on families of exceptional children, and urges professionals to rethink their positions on working with parents. A final paper, "Saving Children in the Age of Big Brother: Moral and Ethical Issues in the Identification of Deviance," by James M. Kauffman, raises concern over adhering to legal mandates as the highest ethical standards, illustrates moral and ethical issues in a hypothetical case study, and emphasizes the importance of viewing the total picture.
