Behavioral Approach to Assessment of Youth with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders: A Handbook for School-Based Practitioners, Second Edition
Edited by: Michael J. Breen & Craig R. Fiedler

This book addresses one of the most challenging aspects of special education: evaluating students referred for suspected emotional/behavior disorders. The second edition of Behavioral Approach to Assessment of Youth with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders attempts to translate best practices into a functional and psychometrically sound approach to assessment. This user-friendly, behaviorally oriented text is for use by school-based practitioners in the position of identifying school-age children with emotional/behavioral disorders. It is also appropriate for undergraduate or graduate students in assessment-oriented courses.

All of the chapters have been updated to include the latest resources and best practices in assessing students with emotional/behavioral disorders. Two new chapters have been added, one on behavior observation techniques and issues and the other on specialized assessment issues and practices for children with autism spectrum disorders. Also, more case studies have been included to augment the application of concepts discussed in several chapters. Any school-based psychologist, social worker, or teacher of students with emotional/behavioral disorders needs to be functionally cognizant of the issues and concepts presented in this practical text.

How to Manage Behavior Series
Series Editors: R. Vance Hall & Marilyn L. Hall

Initially launched 15 years ago in response to a perceived need for teaching aids that could be used by therapists and trainers, the How to Manage Behavior Series (formerly the How to Teach Series) has been widely regarded as one of the most effective training tools in this area ever since. The nontechnical, step-by-step instructional manuals define each procedure, provide numerous examples, and allow the reader to make oral or written responses.

Managing Passive-Aggressive Behavior of Children and Youth at School and Home
Nicholas J. Long, Jody E. Long

The Angry Smile is the first comprehensive, insightful, and realistic description of the passive aggressive student at school and home. Passive aggressive behavior is as pervasive as the air around us; yet it is not usually recognized until it pollutes our mental health.

Passive aggression is potentially more destructive to interpersonal relationships than aggressive behavior. Aggression is overt and painful; but passive aggression is covert, insidious, and can last a lifetime. Based on hundreds of actual examples, The Angry Smile:

· Describes how students develop passive aggressive personalities

· Reveals passive aggressive students' intrinsic fear of anger

· Describes 5 different ways passive aggressive students indirectly express anger

· Docments how students' passive-aggressive behavior frustrates adults at school and home
until the adults inevitably explode in anger and feel guilty

· Explains how the Passive Aggressive Conflict Cycle affects the relationship between adults and students

· Teaches adults specific concepts and intervention skills so they can modify their behavior while also successfully changing the behavior of a passive aggressive student.

This is a breakthrough book for all parents, teachers, and counselors who have to live, teach, and survive with a passive aggressive student.

98 pages, 2002, large-format softcover. (A9279) $32.00
