Condizione Dell'infanzia Nel Mondo 1999 : L'istruzione

release date: Jan 01, 1999
Condizione Dell'infanzia Nel Mondo 1999 : L'istruzione
The international community is increasingly defining education as an essential human right, a force for social change, and a path towards international peace and security. This report on the well-being of the world''s children focuses on the efforts of the international community to ensure that all children enjoy their human right to a high-quality education. Chapter 1 of the report explores the historical context in which children''s right to education has been repeatedly affirmed; discusses the elements integral to the success of the worldwide movement of Education for All; and argues that, in spite of a dearth of resources and growing indebtedness in the developing world, education remains one of the best investments a country can make in order to prosper. Chapter 2 provides statistical profiles for 193 countries based on basic indicators such as infant mortality rate, nutritional status, health status, educational levels, demographics, economic indicators, the status of women, and the rate of progress on major indicators since 1960. This chapter also lists countries in descending order of their estimated 1997 under-5 mortality rates. Included throughout the report are panel sections highlighting specific educational initiatives. Seven "Spotlights" present regional information on school enrollment, gender equity in access to education, school effectiveness, constraints to providing education, and educational innovations. (Contains approximately 70 references.) (KB)

Cognitive Behavior Therapy with Children

release date: Jan 31, 1984
Cognitive Behavior Therapy with Children
Recent estimates (Hallahan & Kauffman, 1978) indicate that over 4. 7 million children, 7.3% of the child population under the age of 19, are labeled emotionally disturbed, mentally retarded, or learning-disabled. Moreover, many of these children remain unserved or are inadequately served. The past decade has produced an increasing concern with the mental health needs of these children and their families. This trend had as much impact in behavior therapy as it did in any other branch of the helping professions. Behavioral work with children, with its emphasis on skill development and environmental modification, helped to build into child psychotherapy a true preventive mental health orientation. The ease of delivery and application of behavioral procedures allowed parents and other caregivers to become meaningfully involved in the clinical process, and so facilitated therapy gains and the maintenance and generalization of those gains. Perhaps the most significant change in behavior therapy in the 1970s was the move beyond interventions derived strictly from learning theories to applications based on knowledge from a variety of psycho logical research areas. The cognitive mediational activities of the client have received special attention, and this book presents the conceptual, methodological, and clinical issues in contemporary cognitive behavior therapy with children.

Strange Language

release date: Jan 01, 1988
Strange Language
The experience of the child victim as a courtroom witness in sexual abuse cases is examined in this study of a testing program involving 30 children aged 6 to 15. The purpose of the study was to identify needs not recognized by courts that can be responded to, denied, or exacerbated through language. Based on court transcripts, differences were studied between the language repertoire of the child and that demanded by the courtroom. Court-related language features are identified and discussed: use of negative; juxtaposition; nominalization; multifaceted questions; unclear or confused expressions; specific and difficult vocabulary; unclear anaphora; use of police statements; quoting of the child''s words; quoting of other people''s words; repetition of previous response; time, space and location questions; and embeddings. Results of the testing program indicate that certain types of questions posed problems for the child trying to hear language. It is suggested that court appearance is not necessarily traumatizing for a child, but becomes so when a child cannot feel sure that he or she is heard, understood, and believed. Suggestions for improved questioning are offered. An annotated bibliography is included that contains 66 references. (LB)
