Elementary School Counseling in a Changing World.
Gerler, Edwin R., Jr., Ed.; Ciechalski, Joseph C., Ed; Parker, Larry D., Ed.
This book of readings was developed to increase the reader's awareness of the cultural and social issues which face children and their counselors. It draws attention to environmental factors which impinge on both teaching and counseling techniques, and encourages counselors to re-examine their roles and interventions for the 1990s. The readings show counselors in elementary schools how to help children grow and develop in a changing world. Each chapter of the book contains articles that have been published in counseling journals during the 1980s. Each chapter begins with an introduction by the editors and concludes with a set of issues designed to stimulate thinking about the current state of elementary school counseling. Individual chapters focus on: (1) cultural diversity; (2) changing families; (3) drug abuse; (4) child abuse and neglect; (5) exceptional children; (6) technology; (7) the changing world of work; (8) learning in a changing world; (9) children's behavior in a changing world; and (10) human relations.
