Overview

"By now, we must all realize that when we acknowledge and learn to deal with children's emotional needs in the classroom we directly influence their social and cognitive development. Readers will find ample evidence of these connections as the lives of the children in this book unfold." The first edition of this indispensable book set the standard for high-quality intervention and prevention programs in early childhood practice. Since its publication, many new forces have impacted the landscape of early childhood education, presenting both great opportunities and great risks for today's emotionally fragile young children. Once again, Lesley Koplow makes complex psychological concepts accessible to classroom teachers.
