Description: This comprehensive, research-based introduction to childhood behavior disorders presents a sensitive and thorough examination of the field -- covering its central issues, theoretical and methodological underpinnings, descriptions and discussions of numerous disorders, clinical and research information, and treatment approaches.

Covers all major childhood behaviors and special disorders -- their definition, description; prevalence, etiology assessment, treatment, and special issues. Focuses on empirical findings and theoretical views, and introduces developmental psychopathology early on, using it as a broad framework to highlight issues of origins, transformations, and stability, of behavior problems. Reflects the latest systems of classification (i.e., DSM-IV, American Association of Mental Retardation Criteria), and offers enlightening discussions on the cultural relativity of defining behavior disorders; the impact of PL-94-142 on education and institutionalization; gender issues, and more. Presents current scholarly literature, an extensive study on the developmental pathways across the different areas of growth, and a broad analysis on the continuities and discontinuities of behavioral problems. Features an attractive two-color design and numerous case studies and examples.
