Emotionally Disturbed Children is a collection of papers presented at the Proceedings of the Annual Study Conference of the Association of Workers for Maladjusted Children held in Edinburgh in August 1965. This collection of papers studies the different approaches in dealing with the problems of maladjustment in school children. This book describes the different maladjustment problems found in Scotland, in Sweden, and in the Scandinavian countries. For example, a paper discusses the educational system in Sweden, in Norway, and in Denmark. This book also examines the differences in problems, conditions, and methods of treatment used in these countries. This text discusses the readiness of pupils to attend schools; the methods developed in the education of maladjusted children; and the regulations that are prescribed to deal with disciplinary measures. This book then enumerates the kinds of disciplinary problems found in Scandinavian schools as focusing on increased group activity and on the new Education Act. The philosophy of a pupil-centered establishment points to the rise of student welfare and institutions such as the Child Guidance Clinics and the Child Welfare organization. This book then discusses the concept of prevention as a primary element in the somatic field of child care in Denmark and the day care approach in addressing emotional disturbed children in Glasgow. This compendium is suitable for child psychiatrists, school administrators, guidance counselors, psychologists, and education ministry officials.
