Parent Experiences with Child Social Interventions and Their Perception of Bibliotherapy
Davis Bowman, Jennifer
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Cincinnati
This study focused on the experience of parents concerned with child social behavior and the perception of bibliotherapy as an intervention. Using a qualitative phenomenological approach, four families raising children between the ages of 4-12 participated in a series of interviews. The children's social needs varied, but parent concerns were related to behavior challenges associated with Down Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder, speech impairment, and developmental issues. Results showed that the essence of the parent's experience with bibliotherapy included (a) recycling social memories from childhood, (b) factors that influence intervention use, and (c) the changing and enduring quality of reading. Implications for research and practice for children and families are addressed. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
