From the Back Cover:

Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, Second Edition, provides a broad coverage of the nature, causes, assessment approaches, and interventions of emotional and behavioral disorders. It presents readers with an exploration of the assumptions behind intervention practices and curricula. This emphasis enables educators and professionals to select and use appropriate assessments for effective instruction and classroom management techniques. This, in turn, promotes positive social and academic behaviors, and prevents undesirable behavior from occurring.

 

Through a multidisciplinary perspective, incorporating biological, psychological, psychodynamic, behavioral, cognitive, sociological, ecological, and values-based/spriritual models, this edition addressed the causes and intervention techniques for behavior and emotional disorders.

 

Emphasizing the general education classroom, this book also presents a wide variety of real-world examples and suggestions for applying interventions in various settings, including the juvenile corrections system.

 

In this edition:

  • A revised organization and pedagogy that separates the patterns of emotional and behavioral disorder from the connected problems assosicated with such disorders
  • Increased focus on impulsiveness, learning difficulties, and substance abuse of students with emotional and behavioral disorders
  • More emphasis on social problem solving
  • Interventions for particular disorders--aggression, anxiety, depression, impulsiveness, relationship problems, and others
  • More pedagogy including:
    • Chapter Objectives
    • Can You Define These Ten Terms?
    • Summary of Theory and Interventions Tables (Chapters 7-10)
    • Questions for Discussion
    • Resources for Futher Study
