An Underachievement Epidemic.
Rimm, Sylvia B.
Educational Leadership, v54 n7 p18-22 Apr 1997
Underachievers generally lack internal locus of control, compete poorly, and undervalue effort. Many underachieving children who have adopted dependent or dominant defense mechanisms can be reached using the Family Achievement Clinic's Trifocal method. This multi-step process features assessment, parent-child communication, identification of the child's profile, changing parent/teacher expectations, and school-modification strategies. (MLH)
