Middle-Class Waifs : The Psychodynamic Treatment of Affectively Disturbed Children. by Siegel, Elaine V.;
MIDDLE-CLASS WAIFS The Psychodynamic Treatment of Affectively Disturbed Children -- Copyright -- Acknowledgments -- Contents -- Chapter 1 Introduction -- Chapter 2 But I Don't Want to Be Me-Children Who Don't Accept Their Gender and Its Functions -- Chapter 3 I'm Really Really Scared and I Feel So Bad-Children Who Have Been Exposed to Adult Sex Play -- Chapter 4 I Want To Kick the World to Pieces-Children Who Have Been Beaten -- Chapter 5 I Don't Understand Anything at All -Children Who Have Suffered Sexual Abuse -- Chapter 6 I'd Really Like to Kill My Mom and Dad-Children Who Live Behind an Emotional Mask -- Chapter 7 Some Theoretical and Treatment Considerations - Mental Representation: The Infant as Active Participant in the Care Giver-Child Dyad -- References -- Index.In this volume, a well-known psychoanalyst, dance therapist, and educational consultant chronicles her clinical work with deeply troubled children who fall between the cracks of our diagnostic and educational systems. These children, who frequently turn out to have been sexually or punitively abused, have no real emotional home despite the fact that they live in materially comfortable circumstances. In spite of their apparent brightness and precocity, they do not thrive in the classroom, where their disruptive behavior, tendency to act out, and fragmented learning bring them to the attention of teachers, counselors, and school psychologists. Standard diagnoses do not explain their plight; such children are neither retarded nor learning disabled nor neurotic. Through poignant case studies, Siegel reviews the developmental circumstances that bring these middle-class waifs to a critical impasse with both their parents and the educational establishment. Time and again she discovers that the children's expectable developmental course has been derailed by their accommodation to parental abuse and deformed parental expectations. Psychodynamic treatment invariably uncovers the maladaptive solutions that fueled the children's behavioral and learning disturbances. This volume speaks to a broad clinical and non-clinical readership: psychoanalytic clinicians; psychologists; counselors; social workers; art, dance, and music therapists; special education teachers; child therapists; and child care workers. They will all join in admiration of Siegel's treatment approach which focuses on what is healthy in deeply traumatized children and, in so doing, helps debunk the myth of the untreatable child.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

Bullying and Suicide [electronic resource (video)] : Think About It / by Cambridge Educational (Firm)(SAGE)1949743; Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)(SAGE)1984150; Films Media Group(SAGE)1996584;
Bullying (1:23) -- Boys Versus Girls' Bullying (2:13) -- Long-Term Effects (1:45) -- Feelings (2:24) -- Cyberbullying and Suicide (3:39) -- Warning Signs (0:43) -- Bystanders and Stepping Up (2:03) -- Adults' Responsibiltiies (2:41) -- Credits: Bullying and Suicide: Think About It (1:16)Bullying is not "just a rite of passage." In actuality, says the National Crime Prevention Council, it's a leading factor in suicide among kids 11 to 16 years of age. And although bullying is only one of a number of suicide-related risk factors impacting tweens and teens, the fact that the term "bullycide" has entered the lexicon is a telling sign of how closely linked bullying and suicide are perceived to be. Structured around two scenarios in which a boy and a girl commit suicide after repeatedly being bullied, this video offers valuable insights into bully and victim psychology, types of bullying, and anti-bullying behavior through penetrating commentary by Erica Perlow, of the Chatham County North Carolina Bullying Prevention Task Force, and psychologist April Harris-Britt. In addition, alternate scenarios are included that illustrate how bystanders to bullying can help neutralize some of the cumulative psychological effects of bullying that could-and too frequently do-push students to take their own lives.10 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.
