dc.description.abstractEmotional and mental disturbances are among the most pressing problems facing society at the present time. More children are lost to society through serious emotional and mental disturbances than through any childhood disease. Although there are various causes for these disturbances, a poor home environment, especially hostility and rejection by parents, is a major cause. The experiences of these disturbed children have been so unrewarding that their view the world as a hostile place and other people as their enemies. In this environment emotionally disturbed children feel they must strike out before they, themselves, are struck down. During the past three months as a counselor, I have had the opportunity to observe emotionally disturbed children at the Dlagnostic Study Home of the New England Home for Little Wanderers, Boston, Massachusetts. These observations and studies have formed the basis of this thesis.en_US
