A supplement for Introduction to Emotional and Behavioral Disorders courses, as well as other Special Education courses. This new casebook offers future special education teachers authentic glimpses into the lives of real children and youth. Each case is taken from the research and personal experiences of the author and selected contributors, and grouped by topic, to emphasize the connections between topics and all aspects of emotional and behavioral disorders. None of the cases is hypothetical; each is populated by children and youth in real events. The author introduces each case and suggests questions for class discussion to further the readers understanding of the concepts presented. This casebook is packaged free with the 8th edition of Characteristics of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders of Children and Youth and is also available as a standalone product.

This casebook contains cases that I have garnered from my reading of both popular and professional literature and from personal contacts with individuals who have confronted difficult or disturbing behavior in their roles as parents, teachers, or adult members of a community. In some instances, I have used direct quotations from the source, sometimes with minor editing. In others I have summarized the original source in my own words. Still other cases were written by someone else, whom I credit as the source, specifically for this book. In all cases I have kept the facts conveyed by the original.
The cases are grouped by topic. However, instructors or students may find that a given case has conceptual links to more than one topic. This is as it should be, as emotional and behavioral disorders are not phenomena that can be packaged neatly into a single category.
Although the cases are grouped by specific topics, many or most of them could bear revisiting as a student progresses through coursework. Some of the questions about the cases, and some questions an instructor might want to ask or a student might pose, may have no fixed answer. Moreover, the "answers" might change after further study and research of the problem or topic area.
I have provided a brief introduction for each case. I have also suggested questions that could be discussed in class or answered in writing, or both. The questions I pose are by no means the only ones of importance, and I encourage instructors and/or students to formulate their own questions about the cases. If the source of the case is a published work, I give the citation and the full reference in the references for the casebook. If it was contributed by another individual or is based on my personal experience with students, I state that in the source note.
I hope this casebook will enrich and enliven any course in which it is used. It is important to recognize that all of the cases are descriptions of actual youngsters and events. They are not hypothetical. My hope is that studying them will help prepare the individuals who read them to work more effectively with young people who have such disorders.
