The Child in America: Behavior Problems and Programs
Interest in child adjustment problems and facilities for the study of behavior deviates have grown so rapidly in recent years that a comprehensive treatment of the subject is gladly welcomed. All who deal in any capacity with the problem child will find here a wealth of detailed information about procedures and methods, and a critical evaluation of present practice. The authors deal with their subject from all possible viewpoints. The setting is prepared for the reader by the presentation in the first chapter of pictures of various types of maladjustment, largely in the form of case material. The authors indicate two primary causative factors in maladjustment-organic defect or abnormality in the individual, and wrong habit formation. The remainder of the book is devoted to methods of study and treatment of behavior deviates as indicated by present practice. Methods of dealing with delinquency through the court and the reform school are critically examined. An extensive account is given of psychiatric child guidance clinics and community organizations, club and recreational facilities, for dealing with child behavior problems.
