Therapeutic group work with children by Gisela Konopka( Book )

17 editions published between 1949 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El estudio de Gisela Konopka, realizado con un grupo de jóvenes con comportamientos delictivos, bajo observación de la Comisión de Defensa de la Juventud (Youth Conservation Commission), se considera de gran importancia y está lejos de haber caducado. En forma clara, Konopka describe la casi completa, ausencia de un programa de recreación y trabajo en un contexto que exige un programa realmente activo. El grupo de jóvenes con el cual la autora trabajó estaba definido como delictivo y sus integrantes esperaban la decisión definitiva de un grupo de examinadores. Estos adolescentes eran, en su mayoría, un grupo de jóvenes enérgicos, agresivos e inquietos. Además, habían cometido delitos contra la sociedad y, por ello, se sentían perturbados, culpables o provocadores. Sin un programa, las tensiones en el seno del grupo fácilmente ascienden a un alto nivel, evidenciando un incremento de sentimientos y reacciones contra la sociedad. Por lo tanto, no resulta sorprendente que la introducción de un programa de terapia de grupo con estos adolescentes contara con una tan ansiada aceptación. La descripción de la autora

Effective communication with adolescents in institutions by Gisela Konopka( Book )

5 editions published between 1965 and 1974 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The difficulties of beginning treatment for education with adolescents before effective communication channels are prepared are discussed. Three prerequisites to communication--listening, observing, empathizing--are presented. Obstacles to communication in the helping adult include pre-occupation with one's own world, ego involvement, failure to grasp the common and unique qualities of the adolescent, and failure to bridge the worlds of adult and adolescent. Obstacles to communication within the youth include the rapidly changing environment (different from the adults's teenage environment), self preoccupation, distrust of the adult world, and low self esteem. The following ways to overcome obstacles to communication are recommended. The adult should increase his own self awareness and self knowledge, take time to establish a relationship of trust, accept the fact that the adolescent's loyalty is to his peer group, and understand nonverbal communication. Examples illustrating the communication process are discussed. This document was published by the child welfare league of america, 44 east 23rd street, new york, new york 10010, $0.25. (jk)
