9780205493333: Challenging Behavior in Young Children: Understanding, Preventing, and Responding Effectively

Renowned authors Barbara Kaiser and Judy Sklar Rasminsky once again help teachers to discover effective ways to address challenging behavior in the classroom!

 

Making full use of Barbara Kaiser's 30 years of experience as a child care director and teacher, the Second Edition of Challenging Behavior in Young Children provides an in-depth look into the latest research on understanding and preventing challenging behavior and offers practical and effective strategies for responding to it, including positive behavior support and functional assessment, as mandated by IDEA.

 

Based on the authors’ 40-page booklet Meeting the Challenge (1999), this new edition maintains the personal touch and real-life examples teachers have grown to rely on. It includes new chapters on relationships and inclusion as well as the latest information on risk and protective factors, culture, the brain, self-reflection, working with families, and bullying.

 

Challenging Behavior in Young Children emphasizes the teacher’s role in the behavior of children, helping students and educators to reflect on their own values, feelings, and actions. The result is an invaluable resource for everyone involved in the education of young children.

Review:

“What makes the authors' work so valuable is that it's as much about relationships as it is about strategies. Barbara has consulted with us at Family Communications about our “Challenging Behaviors” project. Now through this book, people who work closely with young children can benefit from what she and Judy have learned in their search to provide meaningful help to these children.”

- Fred Rogers, Creator and host of the PBS children's program, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood


“Wise but eminently practical. What you'll learn from reading this book will have a significant positive effect on you as a teacher and on the hundreds of children you will eventually touch.”

- Sue Bredekamp, author of Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs


“This textbook has been needed for a long time. It pulls together so many aspects of dealing with problem behavior and covers the field very well. It is up to date, accurate, and interesting to read. I particularly appreciate the fact that these authors are dealing with real children, real adults, and real situations.”

- Dorothy Hewes, San Diego State University


“The authors' scholarship and experience are evident throughout. The direct references to cultural sensitivity are extremely well done. The chapter addressing reflective teaching is also a welcome addition.... Multiple references to various theories and philosophies of intervention provide an effective and eclectic approach.”

- Diane E. Strangis, University of Florida


“Because this book really helps provide a framework for thinking about behavior, it is an extremely useful primary text for courses in elementary education.”

- Ed Greene, Montclair State University, NJ


“Full of good sense and good ideas. This book is clear, practical, sympathetic, and wise. It will be helpful to a great many parents and teachers and child care professionals, and to anyone else who spends time with or cares about children.”

- Lawrence Hartmann, M.D., Past President, American Psychiatric Association
