9780023621413: Characteristics of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders of Children and Youth

For introductory courses in Behavioral and Emotional Disorders. The leader in special education for emotionally disturbed children and youth, this powerful text combines descriptions of emotional and behavioral disorders with discussion and interpretation of current research on their development. Material is organized around five basic concepts: the nature of disorders and conceptual approaches to them; methods and rationale for assessment; major casual factors; characteristics of disordered emotion and behavior; and a personal statement about teaching students who exhibit such disorders. An advocate for social learning principles, the author addresses the links between what happens in a real-life classroom and psychology, child development, and special education; and suggests ways in which emotional and behavioral development can be influenced for the better, particularly by educators.

From the Publisher:

A revised and updated edition of this leading introduction to emotional and behavioral disorders--the introduction which applies research in child development, psychology, and special education directly to the work of the classroom teacher.

From the Back Cover:

A comprehensive classic.   

The ninth edition of Kauffman’s classic text provides for its readers the most comprehensive overview and coherent conceptualization of the problems of students with emotional and behavioral disorders and the challenges their teachers and clinicians face. The unique framework of the text, five logically divided sections, each beginning with an introduction, aids professors and students alike to see and understand the big picture of the field and its issues, search the evidence that supports the identification and interpretation of the characteristics of students living with EBD, and learn about the necessary interventions teachers and clinicians use daily to address the needs of these students. It launches readers into a self-questioning mode and prompts them to think carefully and critically about behavior and its contexts. The ninth edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most recent updates in the field, including the importance of understanding and respecting cultural differences, more personal reflections and cases, and a new companion casebook that enhances the experience for all readers. 

Features of the ninth edition include:

  • Every chapter begins with Questions to guide the reader, and ends with Personal Reflections, Case Studies, and Questions for Further Reflection.
  • New Personal Reflections features have been added for chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, 11, 13, and 15. Students will encounter the personal reflections of people who are currently teaching in the field.
  • New section included in the final chapter on respecting and valuing cultural differences give students and instructors a greater opportunity to explore this critical topic and its implications to teaching students with EBD.
  • Over 175 new reference citations, updating research findings and further supporting ideas and recommendations have been added.
