The "I" of the Beholder: A Guided Journey to the Essence of a Child
Great Potential Press, Inc.
In this book, the author describes the complexity of the Self as the source of all human behavior. She will try to outline the structure of the Self, its normal growth and development, and the role of interaction with other living things in this process. Ms. Roeper sees the Self as a unit within us, which includes input from the brain and all other functions of the body. This book explores how the inclusion of the concept of "soul" or "psyche" or "Self" can change the methods, priorities, and goals of society and parenting. This, in turn, could change how each child and ourselves are viewed and have an impact on our every action and reaction, whether in the boardroom, the bedroom, or the classroom. The book begins with a Foreword, Preface, and Introduction. Chapters are: (1) The Self, Its Existence, and Its Power; (2) The Birth of the Self; (3) The Curriculum of Growth of the Self; (4) The Growing Self and Its Continuing Encounter with the World: The Evolution of the Curriculum of Growth of the Self (5) Relationships and the Self; (6) Learning about an Expanded Reality; (7) Legitimacy; (8) The New Children and the Unexpected New Perspective; (9) Self-Actualization and Interdependence; (10) Qualitative Assessment: An Alternative to the IQ Test; (11) My Own Personal Journey; and (12) Growing Up Gifted.
