Updated and expanded, this remarkably clear and effective manual includes, in a single volume, a thorough clinical guide to and presentation of Barkley's ten-session training program, a fully rewritten and more extensive assessment section, and helpful parent and teacher handouts. This revised volume incorporates DSM-IV diagnostic criteria and offers even more guidelines for assessing children with defiant behavior, including a detailed parent interview that goes through each of the relevant childhood disorders. In addition, it provides two new scales for assessing the parents for ADHD or oppositional defiant disorder as well as norms for scoring them.
Clinicians who purchase this book now have permission to reproduce the parent and teacher handouts for clinical use. For the first edition, these handouts were not reproducible and were sold separately. Readers can now photocopy the forms they need as often as they need without additional purchase.
This updated version of Defiant Children provides clinicians with an excellent resource for treating children with serious behavior problems."

"In the first edition of Defiant Children, Russell A. Barkley presented a well-laid out description of a parent training program for dealing with defiant, oppositional children. In this revision, Barkley has retained the strengths of the original manual and incorporated a number of improvements....Both practitioners and clinicians in training should find the second edition of Defiant Children to be a valuable and heavily used addition to their professional library."
