From explorations of interracial adoption and the treatment of children with disabilities to discussions of the cultural construction of the hopeless child, this multifaceted collection rejects the essentialism of the "priceless child" or "lost youth" � simplistic categories that continue to shape the treatment of those who deviate from the so-called norm.

Download and read online The Human side of corporate competitiveness in PDF and EPUB In the midst of American corporate attempts to regain competitiveness in both international and national markets, is the human element of importance? How do companies reconcile individual needs with organizational imperatives in the workplace today? The Human Side of Corporate Competitiveness explores the possibilities of corporate strategies which allow companies to be both competitive in the marketplace and compassionate to their employees at the same time. This volume brings together distinguished contributors with varying backgrounds and perspectives to present an innovative and comprehensive resource. They analyze the causes of America's decline in competitiveness and propose strategies designed to improve organizational competence for today's marketplace. The proposed strategies highlight the increasing interdependency at the societal level. Special consideration is given to minimizing the detrimental effects of organizational decisions on: employee morale, the health and functioning of employees and their families, and the social fabric of the worker's community. Using examples of "technoservice" companies and new models of "high involvement" management, these incisive chapters show how employee well-being is frequently a necessary prerequisite in the new age of global competitiveness. This volume will be of interest to human resource, management and organizational psychology professionals, as well as to academics in management, human resources, and industrial relations. "A useful source of compelling information related to the emerging interest in the strategic management of human resources in organizations." --Journal of Management
