About this product
- DescriptionIn my many years, 40 plus years, of treating many people considered society's rejects, my - success was such that many people, clients, parents, coworkers, supervisors, superintendents, -- 'etc. requested an explanation of my methods. Efforts to explain them seemed futile. I finally realized they didn't have the kwledge base to understand what I was saying. I concluded that the only way I could communicate my methods was by writing about them in a book which included the background for my assumptions. My book does t present anything new. It merely extracts information: from various studies and incorporates them into an integrated treatment concept. Much of my data is extracted: from studies that some might consider antiquated. However, if one compares human behavior over the period of recorded history you'll fmd that basic personality types have changed little as well as their basic behavior patterns. In my various experiences, I found many caregivers continuing to use the same methods that failed before and then blaming children or their parents for the failure. The book points out different methods that can be used effectively for specific personality types. These methods have been repeated and tested in various environments for numerous years. The prime purpose of this book is to identify and prescribe successful treatment for people most often seen as societies rejects. Recognized and appropriately treated they can become more functional, acceptable and productive people. This book focuses primarily on four specific personality types. However, included is information therapists, parents, laymen, teachers, caregivers, etc. can find beneficial in caring for anyone. The initial research and intent dealt with hardcore delinquents. As our kwledge and experience improved we discovered that these same personality types exist in the general populace. In my field work I found that the same methods were as affective there, as in controlled residential facilities, with few exceptions.
