Editorial Reviews

Mediational Intervention for Sensitizing Caregivers (MISC) is an early childhood intervention method designed to create behaviors that are essential for future learning: concentration, comprehension, self- evaluation, and planning. The volume discusses the results of research projects sponsored by the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and Redd Barna, in Israel, Sweden, the US, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, and India. Explaining how caregivers can be trained in MISC, the volume also discusses cross-cultural and special needs. The appendices include basic training information. Annotation c.
