Summary

A perennial bestseller from a leading authority, this book provides an effective 10-step program for training parents in child behavior management skills (ages 2 to 12). Professionals get proven tools to help parents understand the causes of noncompliant, defiant, oppositional, or socially hostile behavior at home or in school; take systematic steps to reduce it; and reinforce positive change. Comprehensive assessment guidelines are included. In a large-size format for easy photocopying, the volume features numerous reproducible parent handouts and two rating scales (the Home Situations Questionnaire and the School Situations Questionnaire). Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
