Abstract: (Show)
In the first part of Understanding and Managing Children's Classroom Behavior, Dr. Sam Goldstein reviews the current knowledge of children's behavioral, emotional, and developmental problems and takes an in-depth look at the biopsychosocial forces that shape children's behavior. The second part constitutes a comprehensive guide to diagnosis in which readers are provided with an effective model for understanding and evaluating the full range of non-disruptive, internalizing problems and disruptive, externalizing disorders. Various systems of observation are compared, a number of standardized questionnaires are reviewed, and a structured assessment approach geared toward providing school personnel with a rational framework for identifying and reporting on behavioral problems is described. Problems receiving special attention include Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder; opposition defiant and conduct disorders; depression and anxiety; pervasive disorders such as autism and Tourette's Syndrome; and more. Bringing together contributions by a number of leading experts in the field, the final section explores the best current intervention strategies. Chapters cover medications, behavior modification techniques, cognitive-behavioral approaches, various approaches to modifying classroom tasks and environments, and techniques for building social skills in the classroom. Based on more than 1,500 referenced sources, and including the latest DSM diagnostic criteria, this book is an indispensable resource for school and educational psychologists, special education personnel, and child psychologists.
