DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS:

The book deal with cognitive processes and cognitive-motivational for children aged 12 to 14 years.
In schools, the introduction of the health education has produced numerous questionnaires intended to evaluate different aspects of the welfare of the students. In the case of discomfort school, however, there is still a benchmark specific about the threshold above which triggered the need for intervention. Respond to this need, the TVD, a valuable tool to evaluate the student's academic experience of junior high school, which captures the multifactorial nature of distress: self-concept, relationship with peers, with the school in general, with teachers, with parents. Particularly serious phenomenon in Italy, early school leaving can take many forms: non-compulsory schooling, dropouts, students repeat, irregular frequencies, up to the subjective dimension of disappointment with the mismatch between aspirations and achievements. The relevance of the phenomenon and the complexity of its implications necessitating an urgent precise definition and analysis of the problem.

COMMENTS ON THIS PUBLICATION:

The test TVD can pinpoint pupils and classes with more discomfort, to design targeted interventions, through a subsequent administration, to assess the outcomes. Thanks to the ease of administration and interpretation of the data, the TVD can be used by experienced operators - psychologists, psychiatrists, child psychiatrists, educators - and, to the extent of their competence, teachers and groups "early school leavers" provided for territorial level.
The discomfort school is then investigated in multi-dimensional direction. Understand in scientific terms what are the elements that cause discomfort among the students in adolescence is significantly important to set the responses of school curriculum more focused.
