Child psychiatry by Leo Kanner( Book )

138 editions published between 1848 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume, which is the first textbook of child psychiatry in the English language, is offered as an attempt to cover the entire field of children's personality disorders on a broad, objective, unbiased, and practical basis. It has grown out of everyday contacts with pediatricians, consultation work in a large pediatric clinic and dispensary, collaboration with private practitioners and with the various child-caring agencies of the community (schools, orphanages, hospitals, welfare groups, courts, custodial and correctional institutions), and teaching activities at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. It is intended primarily for physicians and medical students but is also meant to be of help to all those interested in children's behavior problems: social workers, psychologists, sociologists, educators, juvenile court workers, etc."--Introduction.

The history and care of the mentally retarded is traced from antiquity to the present. A review of men who originated educational and institutional work with the feebleminded includes jacob pereire, jean itard, johann guggenbuehl, edouard seguin, and samuel howe. Publications by and about these men are listed. The development of institutions is traced chronologically for the countries of france, germany, great britain, netherlands, switzerland, scandinavia, austria and hungary, eastern europe, the united states of america, canada, belgium, italy, and japan. Origin and development of four early mental deficiency periodicals is traced. The breakdown of idiocy into endemic cretinism and mongolism, and the departure from the notion of homogeneity to the emergence of etiological classifications are reviewed. Descriptions of the beginning of special classes in public schools, the development of an intelligence test by alfred binet and theodore simon, efforts to improve the human species (eugenics), and new trends in care and study of the mentally retarded are given. Reference lists cite 310 sources. This document was published by charles c thomas, springfield, ill., $6.50. (jz)

In defense of mothers; how to bring up children in spite of the more zealous psychologists by Leo Kanner( Book )

31 editions published between 1941 and 2011 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is not meant to be a textbook of child psychology. It is not intended to lay down a set of rules and regulations of the thou-shalt and thou-shalt-not variety. It is the outgrowth of years of earnest work with children and their parents. It is an answer to the many recurrent, almost stereotyped, questions asked by mothers in the office, in the parlor, and in group discussions. The author describes his work as the humble attempt of one who does not know it all and cannot fix it all, who after many more years of effort will still regard himself as a struggling novice, who loves and enjoys his life's work with other people's children as thoroughly as he loves and enjoys his work and play with his own two children. Each chapter takes a common sense approach to issues and questions that parents often have in regard to raising their children. The author advocates taking an optimistic over a pessimistic view of a child's behavior and how it will affect his or her future. He uses humor liberally and illustrates his points with anecdotes of parents he has worked with who have experienced the same issues with their own children. Common childrearing problems discussed in this volume include parents worrying about what could go wrong with a child's health; learning how to balance discipline with the child's emerging independence; showing love for your child without smothering them; over-concern with the content of children's books, eating behavior, and thumb-sucking to name a few."
