Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(6), 527–528. Reviews the book, Focus on Prevention: The Education of Children Labeled Emotionally Disturbed by Steven J. Apter (Ed.) (1978). This slender, ambitiously titled volume hopes to attract attention in introductory human-service and special-education courses. While the papers are written in straight forward language that should be easy for those having little acquaintance with the area to comprehend, none offers much help to educators in the practical dilemma of structuring an emotionally healthy environment. In short, the book may be useful in inspiring teachers and beginning social scientists to utilize the school as a resource in promoting mental health.
