Leveringstid: Sendes innen 7 virkedager
Remaining extremely topical, the chapters illuminate the powerful effects of therapeutic education, including:
How therapeutic learning is taking shape, now and in the future
How therapeutic ideas from popular culture have come to govern social thought and policies
How the fostering of dependence and compulsory participation in therapeutic activities that encourage the disclosing of emotions, can undermine parents' and teachers' confidence and authority
How therapeutic forms of teacher training undermine faith in the pursuit of knowledge
How political initiatives in emotional literacy, emotional wellbeing and 'positive mental health' propagate a diminished view of human potential throughout the education system and the workplace.
The Dangerous Rise of Therapeutic Education is an eye-opening read for every teacher and leader across the field of education, and every parent and student, who is passionate about the power of knowledge to transform people's lives. It is a call for a debate about the growing impact of therapeutic education and what it means for learning now and in the future.
