Mollie Peace was a woman of her time, one of a generation that saw the most extraordinary changes. Born in poverty, she lived through the hardship of the early twentieth century, and experienced the tragedies of war. She witnessed the birth of the motor car, the atom bomb, the computer and the Internet. A loyal wife and mother, she raised a family and knew the joy of great-grandchildren. To have experienced all this was no ordinary life. But like so many other women of her time, she nurtured a private desire that was always denied her. She wanted to be a writer. That was her real identity and she was a talented poet. But there was no opportunity for her. Until now. This collection is both a tribute to her and an encouragement to everyone who believes in their own purpose and desires. Never give up. Your words will live on.

Diagnosing 'disorderly' Children

RRP $625.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

Diagnosing children and young people as "disorderly" "troublesome" or "emotionally disturbed" is becoming increasingly commonplace. Once "diagnosed" these children are then seen as a problem for schools and the education system. Furthermore, the diagnosis often leads to damaging predictions of mental disorders or even criminality and violence in adulthood.
Diagnosing Disorderly Children explores the effects of this growing tendency to diagnose children as disorderly, and questions whether what is being done is right for the child and for society.
Based on the author's extensive research with children diagnosed with behavioral difficulties, this book provides a thorough critique of today's practices, and examines:
- The traditional analysis of behavioral disorders and the making of "disorderly" children
- The influence of "expert knowledge" on behavioral disorders and its influence on schools, communities and a new generation of teachers
- The effect of discourses of mental disorder on children and young people
- The increasing "medicalization" of children by prescribing drugs such as Ritalin
Diagnosing Disorderly Children offers an innovative, accessible and timely analysis of a critical issue facing schools and society today. The book uses Foucaultian notions to pose critical questions of the practices that make children disorderly. Rich in case studies and interviews with children and young people, this will make fascinating reading for students, academics and researchers working in the fields of education, inclusion, educational psychology and youth studies.
