The authors in this book outline a new definition and treatment of behaviorally disordered children and adolescents. The emphasis throughout is on the development of the principles and treatment procedures that will allow the reader to apply the strategies necessary to teach behaviorally disordered students to learn to control their own social and academic behavior in the school setting. Treatment is largely based on a self-management and social-skills training model--a model which has gained increasing support and attention in the last decade. Self-management and social skills function best when they are gradually and successfully practiced under specifically controlled conditions. Under these conditions, students learn to appreciate their teachers and their teachers' efforts to help them learn to help themselves. They demonstrate improved academic proficiency, social competence, and enhanced self-esteem. For teachers, counselors, administrators, school and child psychologists, behavior analysts, and other mental health professionals.
