Many children are growing up hurt, often in dysfunctional homes. Their environment at home may lead to behaviors that can lead to learning problems in school, which in turn affect the parent and child bond. Author Christopher Slaton, Ed.D. addresses this important issue in his edifying new book, Education and Science: The Information Processing Age, the Learning Parent and Child in Crisis.
In this book, the author explores the meaning of information as sense data and received data in an effort to explain how human processing leads to information, knowledge, experience, and reflection. This is the Age of Human Systems Science, where the study of how people live, learn, think, and respond describes how they feel things and think through the things they feel. The struggles of a parent and child in crisis are considered, in the sense of how parents need to act as leaders and child developers and in the sense of how children need to act as learners and participants.
When the parent or child in crisis responds to an event it is to become more informed, which begins a rigorous, systemic, and objective work process where valid knowledge may be acquired as they move in relation to a set goal. This makes the act to live each day a practice and the act to learn a process relevant to the affect of education, science, and information processing. How one does the things he is told to do is called information processing. The body, brain, and senses make up a human learning system, which produces a response that goes through a process to release feelings and/or thoughts.
Education and Science: The Information Processing Age, the Learning Parent and Child in Crisis was written to help parents protect their child’s right to learn how to grow as a green science. This is the human side of learning how to use space, energy, and time to help improve the way self and other people use the environment to live, learn, think, and respond. Every human being has to learn how to use the body and brain to act through times of pain or pleasure. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to Xlibris.com.
About the Author
Dr. Slaton has designed Parent Education and Resource Coordination Services (PERCS) to help children and families in crisis gain access to the right family, medical, educational, mental health, social work, and corrections professional to reduce the risk of cyclic declines due to learning, behavior, and conduct disorders that were not diagnosed in accordance with a child, youth, or young adults years of eligibility for a free and appropriate public school education. To change the factors that contribute to an inability to learn, behave, and control one’s conduct, he or she has to become more informed about how to use a home, school, neighborhood, and workplace network to focus how they grow, mature, and develop in these places. This is why in his book Education and Science (2009), the process is described as a green technology. The participant learns how to improve their home, school, neighborhood, and workplace networks as a human asset. Hence, this is called the Building Human Asset Process.
