For the introductory, characteristics course in Behavior Disorders.This market-leading text provides a comprehensive, up-to-date, research- based introduction to emotional and behavioral disorders. It describes all major types of disorders across the age range of preschooler through adolescent and is organized around five basic concepts: the nature of disorders and the conceptual approaches to them; assessment; major casual factors; facets of disordered emotion and behavior; and a personal statement about teaching students with these disorders.
