Too Much, Too Soon? Early Learning and the Erosion of Childhood

Too Much, Too Soon? Early Learning and the Erosion of Childhood

Author: Richard House Format: Paperback Release Date: 06/09/2011

How to nurture young children's well-being and learning to reverse the erosion of childhood? Children's lives have been speeded up by commercialisation, 'adultification', and the government's 'nappy curriculum' which 'schoolifies' them and pushes quasi-formal learning too soon. Now, in twenty-three hard-hitting chapters, leading educators, researchers, policy makers and parents advocate alternative ways ahead for slowing childhood, better policy-making and, above all, the 'right learning at the right time' in children's growth ? learning when they are developmentally ready.

In, Against and Beyond Therapy Critical Essays Towards a Post-professional Era

In, Against and Beyond Therapy Critical Essays Towards a Post-professional Era

Author: Richard House Format: Paperback Release Date: 11/10/2010

In, Against and Beyond Therapy challenges the foundations of many of therapy's most take-for-granted and self-serving assumptions. Yet despite its title, it is very far from being yet another anti-therapy book. Rather, the book's central aim is to retrieve what is best in therapy work from what Richard House sees as the pernicious and ultimately deadening forces of institutional professionalisation; credentialism and careerism; 'audit-culture' obsessions with 'evidence-based practice'; and the 'apolitical' psychopathologising of clients - concerns well captured by the term 'the ideology of modernity'. In, Against and Beyond Therapy assembles some 15 years of updated critical writings within the broad therapy field, with incisively provocative commentaries on the professionalisation process, the client voice, therapeutic education and training, and research. For practitioners who are highly sceptical about the beneficence of the state regulation of the psychological therapies, this book promises to be a rallying-point for the development of a 'post-professional' therapy culture.It will be indispensable reading for critical psychologists, and for therapists of all persuasions and modalities who value critical thinking and challenge, and who welcome the opportunity to step outside of therapy's conventional, taken-for-granted 'regimes of truth'.

Childhood, Well-Being and a Therapeutic Ethos

Childhood, Well-Being and a Therapeutic Ethos

Author: Richard House Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/11/2009

A key theme of this book is that we urgently need a therapeutic ethos in order to bring both educational and therapeutic sensibilities to bear on the issue of children's wellbeing, if truly effective and appropriate policy responses to the current malaise are to be fashioned. Not least, we must pay particular attention to childhood experience, showing that scientific and technical developments are always secondary to the resources of the human soul, if we are to minimize the extent to which today's children will need therapy as adults. This will entail moving beyond narrowly mechanistic definitions of, and ways of thinking about, well-being and the psychological therapies. This book offers pointers to the kinds of arguments that can inform what is rapidly becoming a central concern of politicians and policy-makers.

Therapy Beyond Modernity Deconstructing and Transcending Profession-Centred Therapy

Therapy Beyond Modernity Deconstructing and Transcending Profession-Centred Therapy

Author: Richard House Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/01/2003
