For undergraduate and graduate courses in Introduction to Emotional and Behavior Disorders of Children and Adolescents. In broad, clear coverage of emotional and behavior disorders of children and adolescents, Students with Emotional and Behavior Disorders: An Introduction for Teachers and Other Helping Professionals examines historical and societal contexts, assessment approaches, classification, developmental risk factors, major explanatory models, prevention and intervention in school and other settings. The authors present readers with an exploration of the assumptions behind intervention practices and curricula, enabling educators and professionals to select and use appropriate assessments for effective instruction and classroom management techniques. This, in turn, promotes positive social and academic behaviors, and prevents undesirable behavior from occurring. This edition addresses the causes and intervention techniques for behavior and emotional disorders, emphasizes the general education classroom, and also presents a wide variety of real-world examples and suggestions for applying interventions in various settings, including the juvenile corrections system. The resulting coverage strikes an appropriate balance for educators and other professionals preparing themselves to serve students with emotional and behavior disorders.show more
