Children and Adolescents with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders Book Excerpt:

This first edition text is specifically designed to help teachers work successfully with children who exhibit emotional and behavioral disorders by affording readers a comprehensive and holistic repertoire of valuable, evidence-based treatment strategies. Written from the dual perspectives of an experienced clinician and a long-time educator, the school professionals and students who read it will better understand the role of both teacher and service provider, optimizing the coordination and effectiveness of the services that are critical to the success of these students. Chapter by chapter, Students and Adolescents with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders explores the most prevalent behavioral disorders encountered by school professionals as they work with today's students. Each disorder is addressed by type and each includes a discussion of the relevant characteristics, causes, prevalence, and current references, and treatment strategies. While the first half of each chapter focuses on the psychological overview of the disorder based on the latest research, the second half of the chapter takes an in-depth look at practical applications and strategies to combat the disorders through the use of real-world case examples, practice-based techniques, tips, and critical thinking questions. Balanced and comprehensive, this book supports both a behavior and cognitive therapeutic approach to the treatment of students with EBD and acknowledges the need for a collaborative approach to these issues by teachers, school professionals and other service providers.

Behavioral Social and Emotional Assessment of Children and Adolescents Book Excerpt:

Behavioral, Social, and Emotional Assessment of Children and Adolescents, Second Edition was written to provide a comprehensive foundation for conducting clinical assessment of child and adolescent social-emotional behavior in a practical, scientific, and culturally appropriate manner. It is divided into two major sections. Part I includes eight chapters that provide a general foundation for assessment practice. These chapters include coverage of basic professional and ethical issues, classification and diagnostic problems, and six primary assessment methods, which are presented in detail. Part II includes six chapters on applications for assessing specific social-emotional behavior domains, including internalizing and externalizing problems, social skills and peer relations, young children, and diverse cultural groups. Together, these two sections provide a framework for a model of assessment that is practical, flexible, sensitive to specific needs, and empirically sound. Changes in the second edition of this book include: increased coverage of the practice of functional behavior assessment; updated test reviews; reviews of new assessment instruments; updated information on legal and ethical issues; updated information on assessment and cultural diversity; and a handy appendix with contact information for all publishers of instruments discussed in the book, including Web site addresses. To the greatest extent possible, this book weaves together the most recent research evidence and common application issues.

Sleep and its Disorders in Children and Adolescents with a Neurodevelopmental Disorder Book Excerpt:

Sleep disorders are common in children and adolescents with neurodevelopmental disorders, exacerbating behavioural problems and hindering overall care. Based on a review of published evidence and a wealth of clinical experience, this book provides paediatricians, paediatric neurologists, specialists in intellectual disability, psychiatrists, psychologists, and primary care staff with practical guidance for the investigation and management of these disorders. The book outlines sleep and its disorders in children and adolescents, before discussing special considerations in children with a neurodevelopmental disorder. The next section reviews comorbid conditions that contribute to sleep disturbances, including intellectual disability, epilepsy, sleep-related breathing disorders, sensory deficits, psychiatric disorders, and parenting difficulties. The remainder of the book gives accounts of the sleep disturbance aspects of various neurodevelopmental disorders. Each disorder is considered separately, focussing on the need for a comprehensive, co-ordinated multidisciplinary approach to assessment and treatment. Emphasis throughout is placed on aspects of practical clinical importance.

Handbook of Adolescent Behavioral Problems Book Excerpt:

As we enter the new millennium, promoting sound mental health and positive behavior of adolescents has undeniably taken on greater significance than ever before. To that end, more and more research is confirming what many have suspected for years: environment and community surroundings have a major affect on an adolescent’s well-being and overall mental health. And because no single causal agent triggers teenage pathology—and no one-size-fits-all treatment is available—the Handbook of Adolescent Behavior Problems offers a comprehensive and integrative biopsychosocial approach to effective practice. This volume examines not only the psychological and genetic factors underlying dysfunction, it also explores the critical roles that family members, peers, and the larger community play in an adolescent’s life. It offers current interdisciplinary perspectives on adolescent development, both functional and pathological, and provides coverage that is clear, accessible, and practical on such topics as: Major disorders, including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, ADHD, PTSD, developmental delays, and conduct disorders. Behavior problems, such as substance abuse, sexual offenses, teen pregnancy, school failure, gambling, and gang violence. Best practices, reviewing what works (i.e., interventions that have been rigorously validated), what might work (i.e., those in need of further study), and what doesn’t work. Residential interventions as well as community treatment. Risk and resiliency factors. Ongoing and emerging pharmaceutical issues. Each chapter focuses on a specific behavior or disorder and is formatted to help readers quickly locate needed information. The Handbook of Adolescent Behavior Problems provides a solid foundation for understanding the adolescent experience and the influence of the family and community as well as much-needed information on the development of evidence-based practices. It is designed to be a one-stop reference for anyone working with adolescents—developmental psychologists, clinical and school psychologists, and education specialists as well as for graduate students in these areas.
