Tantrums, resistance to chores, negativity: occasional clashes between parents and children are not uncommon. But when a child's defiance is chronic and disruptive of family life, he or she may have Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). In this clear and accessible resource for clinicians and school practitioners, parents, students of child behavior, and teachers, Dr. Barkley illuminates the nature of ODD, its causes, why it should be dealt with early, and what can be done.
Dr. Barkley provides a vivid picture of what we know about ODD and presents real-life scenes of family interactions and commentary from parents.Viewers learn how to distinguish ODD from milder forms of misbehavior, long-term outcomes for defiant children, the relationship between ODD and ADHD, and why parent training can help.
A clearly organized review and amplification of the material covered in the video, the accompanying manual also provides helpful supplementary information. Dr. Barkley delineates diagnostic criteria for ODD and discusses the disorder's prevalence and outcomes, as well as the family dynamics that foster defiant behavior. The manual concludes with useful lists of suggested readings and organizations that can serve as referral sources.
