9780807748039: Unsmiling Faces

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 making complex psychological concepts available to classroom teachers, this thorough revision: (1) incorporates important understandings gained since the tragic events of 9/11; (2) addresses many of the challenging issues that confront educators in the current high-pressure climate focused on academic performance; (3) includes recent scientific research that supports the concepts underlying high-quality intervention and prevention in early childhood practice-concepts that were the basis for the first edition of this book; and (4) provides an essential framework to help teachers understand the emotional lives of the young children they serve.

Review:

Unsmiling Faces: How Preschools Can Heal provides early childhood professionals with a framework for understanding the emotional lives of the young children they serve. It combines a theoretical foundation with a practical basis for making preschool classrooms function as therapeutic environments. It also introduces an innovative method of designing curriculums that help children integrate experience in affective as well as cognitive ways. Throughout Unsmiling Faces, rich examples drawn from the classroom help to illustrate the range of problems encountered and the caring approaches attentive professionals can use to address them. Unsmiling Faces will help preschool professionals make room in the classroom for the emotional lives of children. Unsmiling Faces is a critically important contribution, especially in light of the radical changes now underway in welfare and educational reforms sweeping through the federal, state, and municipal governments. --Midwest Book Review
