Diagnosis and Remediation Practices for Troubled School Children
Burks, Harold F.
Rowman & Littlefield Education
In this resource for educators, Harold F. Burks offers a comprehensive guide to the evaluation techniques and intervention strategies that have worked with many school children experiencing problems. Thus, this book attempts to: clarify the understanding of observed, unwanted child behavior symptoms (whether they be physical, intellectual, academic or social in nature); investigate with educators and parents--and sometimes children--the possible causal factors that antedate these behavior manifestations; and create in cooperation with parents and school personnel, innovative intervention techniques to help children learn accepted behavior patterns. The methods outlined in the book are intended for teachers, principals, school psychologists, school nurses, guidance personnel, and persons in related professions such as social workers, clinical psychologists, and psychiatrists. It is assumed the readers will have acquired a rudimentary knowledge of psychological dynamics (acquired through college courses) in the areas of diagnostic methods, aberrant behavior, personality theory, learning disorders, special education, and counseling techniques. This book is appropriate for use in graduate courses concerned with child exceptionality and psychopathology. It is organized into the following chapters: (1) Introduction; (2) Putting Childhood Problem Behaviors in Perspective; (3) Excessive Self-Blame; (4) Excessive Anxiety; (5) Excessive Withdrawal; (6) Excessive Dependency; (7) Poor Motivational Strength; (8) Poor Physical Strength; (9) Poor Coordination; (10) Poor Intellectual Ability; (11) Poor Academics; (12) Poor Attention; (13) Poor Impulse Control; (14) Poor Reality Contact; (15) Poor Social Identification; (16) Excessive Suffering; (17) Poor Anger Control; (18) Excessive Sense of Persecution; (19) Excessive Aggressiveness; (20) Excessive Resistance; (21) Poor Social Conformity; (22) Attention Deficit Disorder; (23) Children with Behavior Problems; (24) Disadvantaged Children; and (25) Counseling the Parents.
