Summary
"The contents of this book represent six years of research on anxiety in children of elementary school age. Although our research project continues--it is far from finished--there were several considerations which brought us to the decision to write this book. First, in none of our publications had we spelled out the theoretical framework within which we have operated. Consequently, the relationships of our findings to each other, as well as to broader psychological issues, have not been discussed in a manner satisfactory to us. Second, we had a fair amount of unpublished data which we felt could only be evaluated within the context of all we have done. Third, we became increasingly aware that our work had important implications for psychological practices and procedures in the public schools. This awareness was due not only to our interpretation of our formal findings, or to the fact that we spent a great deal of time in the school setting, but also to the response of various school personnel who felt that our studies could be of great relevance in the development of testing procedures which would be more meaningful than those currently employed in our schools. The final factor entering into the decision to write this book was our inability, for reasons beyond our control, to remain together as a research team. We have worked intimately together for several years, all of us participating in the over-all planning, the design of the many studies carried out, and in the innumerable meetings In which we hashed over the significance of our findings. At the same time that it became apparent that we could not remain together as a research team, we realized that we had to integrate our work in one place before some of us had to leave. We assume that our work will be of interest to clinical and child psychologists, psychiatrists, and others in the behavioral sciences. However, there is a much larger group of professional people whom we wish to reach but whose points of contact with the behavioral sciences are, in our opinion, far less than they should be. We refer here to a variety of people In education: school psychologists, guidance personnel, teachers, and administrators. As we indicated earlier, when we have presented our research to these workers they have supported us in our belief that our work has relevance for testing programs in our schools. We hope, therefore, that this book will reach and be reacted to by those professional workers"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)
