Editorial Reviews

Review

“Loaded with alarming, disturbing, and fascinating information.” —The Washington Post

“The author of this sympathetic, eye-opening study, urges a radical change from permanent institution-based care to a flexible system of highly individualized child and family therapy, detailed here.” —Publishers Weekly

“The stories of real people are not only gripping, but a powerful device to include information about a system whose drawbacks are too numerous to list.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Gutkind writes with a calm intelligence throughout this turbulent book, urging new alternatives to the failed philosophies that currently weigh down the system.” —Chicago Tribune

From Publishers Weekly

Speaking on behalf of mentally ill children and teenagers, many of whom are also learning-disabled, and only one-fifth of whom receive treatment or service, Gutkind ( Children's One Place ) accuses goverment, social service professionals and media of ignoring this "national disgrace." The author spent several years following three mentally handicapped adolescents from financially and emotionally ravaged families as they were shuttled among temporary shelters, group homes and a dozen psychiatric institutions where, he claims, they were "systematically tantalized or tortured with promises of reward or punishment"--$2 million having been spent to no avail on one of his "proteges." Instead, the author of this sympathetic, eye-opening study, urges a radical change from permanent institution-based care to a flexible system of higly individualized child and family therapy, detailed here.
