Dr Terri Apter’s ‘Recommended Read’:
Innovative Practice and Interventions for Children and Adolescents with Psychosocial Difficulties and Disabilities
Editors: Elias Kourkoutas & Angie Hart
“A surprisingly high proportion of young people—estimates range from 20 to 38 per cent—are in need of some intervention for psychological, behavioural or educational problems. There is a pressing need to model the variety of different psychosocial difficulties and disabilities to take into account how young people experience their conditions, how families respond (and how these responses affect the child or adolescent), and how teachers’ attitudes and behaviour might facilitate development.
“Innovative Practice and Interventions for Children and Adolescents with Psychosocial Difficulties and Disabilities brings together approaches from high-ranking academics and practitioners from diverse countries, including Europe, America, the Middle East and Australia. As can be expected, there is not one model or one set of proposals, but the contributors share the mission to take a holistic view of disabilities and disorders, and to provide theoretical frameworks that can facilitate education and development within mainstream structures. This is an impressive and valuable contribution to an important field.”
