High Risk Children in Schools offers a way for psychologists and educators to see and talk about the growing population of "at-risk" children--those likely to fail at formal schooling--while helping to redefine the relationship between schools and families. Using systems theory and developmental psychology, the authors present a new framework for the study and education of children who are at-risk. This framework--the Contextual Systems Model--creates a dialogue between the child and schooling through which meaning, goals, and experiences are shared and accepted.

Calling upon some of the most progressive thinkers in the field, it presents a groundbreaking collection of original writing on the theories, methods of study, and interventions to promote resilience. Unlike other works that have left largely unquestioned their own culture-bound interpretations of the ways children and youth survive and thrive, this volume explores the multiple paths children follow to health and well-being in diverse national and international settings.

Mapping risks in education

Findings suggest that "risk" plays a pivotal role in how academic achievement is understood and acted on in education sites. However, contrary to perspectives suggesting "risk" and the deployment of the category of the "at-risk" student operate in a universal and entirely problematic manner, this study illustrates the complicated, complex and contextual ways these notions emerge. While engaging in risk discourse---or identifying those students presumed more likely than their peers to experience low academic achievement---is seen as necessary to remedy students' academic needs, this process simultaneously may rely on stereotypical and/or racist beliefs about students and thus, limit its effectiveness. Yet at the same time, who gets categorized as "at-risk" depends on markers that converge and diverge from entrenched societal constructions of normality. These findings, coupled with the complex, yet still seemingly deficit explanations used to account for low academic achievement suggest the need to illuminate and challenge the multiple configurations of knowledge about risk and academic achievement that inform teacher practice.

In order to make a complete and accurate psychological analysis of an adolescent, the psychologist must understand the clinical interpretations of psychological test performance in light of the adolescent's development. Psychological Portraits of Adolescents demonstrates how psychological test materials are analyzed and integrated according to developmental expectations. Using their extensive experience testing young people, Eagle and Schwartz give detailed interpretations of the results of several classic psychological tests such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scales, the Bender-Gestalt, the Rorshach, and figure drawing. The book begins at the point after the tests have been administered and scored, and it examines the psychological growth of adolescents from ages twelve to twenty-one through the interpretation of the psychological test data. Eagle and Schwartz provide actual test data based on thirty years of testing thousands of adolescents in school settings, guidance clinics, psychiatric hospitals, private treatment, and research programs. For each age group, the authors provide a picture of the normal developmental level and test results, with an explanation of how to evaluate degrees of deviance from normal expectations. This approach will assist clinical psychologists working with adolescents to better understand the psychological testing of adolescents and the data found in psychological reports. The authors use an ego psychological model reduced to four functional dimensions: cognition, dynamics, defenses, and affect. The relationship between these different areas of functioning and the test data are detailed, so the reader can appreciate how the diagnostic profile is determined by the data. Each diagnosis is explained in terms of the test data and its DSM III-R equivalent. Psychological Portraits of Adolescents provides an innovative framework that child and forensic psychiatrists and school psychologists can use to integrate psychological test results and apply them through all stages of development. Anyone involved in the testing of adolescents or relying on the results of such testing will find this book invaluable.

"Success for All provides a detailed account of an educational experiment in a middle school in Shanghai, China. The school, Zhabei No, 8 Middle School, is located in a run-down, lower working class district. Since the mid-1980s the school has experimented on an educational reform program called success education, aiming to help those at-risk students to be successful in school. This book illustrates how this educational experiment has been carried out and to identify experiences that could be learned by the international educational community." "The book analyzes the critical role played by Principal Liu Jinghai, and particular attention is paid to the strategies adopted by the school to help enhance students' self-esteem through integrating love and care throughout the school's curriculum and activities. The pivotal roles played by teachers called "class directors" are meticulously studied, and efforts the school has made to collaborate with parents and the local community are examined."--BOOK JACKET.
