Delinquency in three cultures by Carl M Rosenquist( Book )

6 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problem of delinquency is examined through a study of 300 boys in the three culture groups of lower-class Anglo-American residents of the Southwest United States (non Spanish or Indian culture), lower-class Mexican-Americans (residents of the United States of Mexican extraction), and lower-class Mexicans (residents of Mexico). The methodology and results of the investigation are discussed accompanied with detailed descriptions of responses from the Wechsler Intelligence Scales, the Choices Test, Offenses Test, Card Sort Test, Cartoon Test, Picture-Story Test, and a physical examination. A summary of the findings is presented with conclusions and implications derived from the results. The appendix provides descriptions of each boy individually in terms of family structure, social adjustment, behavior, and performances on the tests. Additional appendixes present statistical data on test responses. (Rd)

School of the future( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most observers now firmly believe that major reform in public education, perhaps even radical changes that would scarcely have been voiced a generation ago, will be the primary driving force to ameliorate these social problems. Psychologists and other behavioral scientists can be in the forefront of bringing about the necessary changes and scientific advancement for such reforms to succeed. It is highly likely that the next decade will see an ever-increasing involvement of psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, economists, and social workers. They will be joining forces with educational specialists, not only in the research and development aspects of educational reform but also in the social engineering of major field experiments, model schools, and policy studies that will provide the basis for effective reforms. Part 1 of this book deals with the concept of the School of the Future as a community institution, how it fits into the national scene, and plans for evaluation. Part 2 is devoted to the models of intervention that are emerging in each of the four communities where the School of the Future is being developed"--Introduction.

Creating climates for growth by Frances F Fuller( Book )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1972 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The teacher-pupil-parent relationships that influence child development are explored in this paper. The analysis presented is based upon the findings of studies conducted by the research and development center at the university of texas and upon two preceding projects--the "mental health in teacher education project" and the "personality, teacher education and teacher behavior project." The authors see the complex task of the elementary school teacher as a product of an intimate, enduring, powerful relationship with all kinds of children and all kinds of parents, and of the complex nature of each individual which is always partially unknown both to himself and to the person with whom he interacts. An underlying premise of the university of texas projects was that teachers need to fully know themselves and their environment. Teaching done by prospective teachers was scrutinized by camera, tape recorder, and trained observers to discover how these teachers interacted with children, what kind of people they were, and how the children responded to them. The authors report findings on (1) the teachers' concerns about themselves and their tasks as teachers, (2) individual teaching styles, (3) methods of "solving" the problem child, (4) methods of gathering information relevant to the students and teaching problems, (5) formulating helpful hypotheses, (6) testing hypotheses, (7) the use of classroom resources, and (8) how administrators can help.

Understanding the homeless : from research to action by Donald Baumann( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to examine the homeless population of Austin, Texas and to determine who the homeless were, how they became homeless, how they saw themselves and others, what their needs were, and how they were being served by agencies. Survey data were collected from 500 homeless persons. This document summarizes findings from 3 years of research on the homeless in Austin, Texas. It begins by introducing four homeless persons in a typology of the recently dislocated, outsiders, and isolates which provides a framework for understanding the stages in the process of homelessness. It provides a theoretical model for understanding the causes, mediators, and consequences of homelessness, and describes three stages of loss (loss of family support, loss of friends, loss of community support). The model suggests that homelessness involves a progression from major loss to disaffiliation to entrenchment, with key factors being: (1) precipitating external circumstances; (2) a weakening of resources; (3) disaffiliation and elimination of traditional support and resources; and (4) entrenchment in homelessness, either as an outsider or as an isolate. It pulls together what is currently known about who the homeless are and how they became that way; the problems associated with homelessness; and the psychological and structural barriers to assistance for the homeless. It concludes with some broad strategies for action based on the model. (Thirty-four references are listed.) (Nb)

Slogans and euphemisms : the functions of semantics in mental health and mental retardation care by Leona L Bachrach( Book )

3 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper examines the way in which semantics relates to policies of deinstitutionalization of persons with mental illness and mental retardation. Different understandings of common terms in the field are illustrated and it is suggested that the government plays many games, both number games and word games, in dealing with homeless people, migrant workers, and mentally ill persons. Once the existence of illness is denied, so too is the need for special services for that population. Semantic games may impair the ability to think clearly because the terms are so vague or because catchwords, euphemisms, and metaphors minimize the complexity of the problms we need to resolve. The semantics of five key terms are examined: least restrictive alternatives, young adult chronic patients, deinstitutionalization, community, and asylum. Finally, the importance of a renewed commitment to the mentally disabled is stressed, as is the need to educate oneself to understand the power of words. (Cl)
