The concept of ‘normality’ or mental health is a difficult one to define, but educators and social psychologists must have a clear definition of it in order to proceed with practical work.

In this stimulating and informative book, originally published in 1968, Mr Wilson discusses the idea of mental health, both as a general concept and specifically as it affects the teacher as educator. He deals with the problems of learning and the ‘difficult’ child, not confining his suggestions within the boundaries of curricular teaching but exploring the wider aspect of moral education.
