Full Description:   

Bringing together leading researchers, this book integrates current knowledge on emotional and behavioral disorders in the school setting. Reviewed are a range of evidence-based approaches to identifying, assessing, and intervening with this difficult-to-teach population. School practitioners and educators gain essential tools for developing and evaluating programs to improve student behavior, boost self-control and social skills, and maximize academic achievement. Findings on early intervention and prevention are presented, and implications for policy discussed. Uniquely broad in its coverage, the volume also emphasizes the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in service provision and delineates best-practice guidelines for research.

"In an era of accountability and emphasis on scientifically based educational practices, this handbook delivers. In 30 succinct chapters, this text provides depth and breadth, covering research on the foundations, assessment, characteristics, interventions, and research methodology of emotional and behavioral disorders. Leading scholars present a thorough, evidence-based review of past, present, and future challenges facing the field. Practitioners and researchers will find this text invaluable."
