Reviewed are a range of evidence-based approaches to identifying, assessing, and intervening with this difficult-to-teach population. School practitioners and educators gain essential tools for developing and evaluating programs to improve student behavior, boost self-control and social skills, and maximize academic achievement. Findings on early intervention and prevention are presented, and implications for policy discussed. Broad in coverage, the volume also emphasizes the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in service provision and delineates best-practice guidelines for research.

Rutherford, Quinn, and Mathur have gathered some of our most influential researchers and teachers to share what they have learned about these disorders. The content is expertly and logically organized to provide easy access to issues related to historical and conceptual foundations, assessment and evaluation, student characteristics, intervention and treatment, and research methodology. Coverage encompasses data-based decision making, prevention-oriented assessment and intervention approaches, and student-centered behavioral supports. No other single source matches the quality, breadth, depth, and comprehensiveness of information that is found here"--George Sugai, PhD, Area of Special Education, College of Education, University of Oregon "This book provides up-to-date coverage of research foundations for understanding children's emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). The chapters are well written and appropriately provocative, raising fundamental and timely considerations for assessing EBD and developing empirically validated interventions. The book will be a valuable addition to graduate training programs and personal reference libraries for special educators, school psychologists, and mental health professionals who are working to improve the lives of children with EBD."--Stephanie H. McConaughy, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, College of Medicine, University of Vermont "This volume offers a much-needed and welcome presentation of the best that we currently have to offer children and youth with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). Enlisting the best minds in the area, this book addresses the major foundational, assessment, intervention, and methodological issues facing the field. It provides a valuable perspective on where we have been, our current level of knowledge, and where we should be going. Unlike many other volumes in the area, the recommendations provided here are backed by the most objective scientific research, rather than the authors' political or philosophical leanings. It is a 'must' for anyone who truly wants to know how to effectively help these challenging students."--Gary M. Sasso, PhD, Special Education Program, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, College of Education, University of Iowa "A vital tool....Its no-nonsense approach and understandable style of summarizing the current research makes this a clear choice for the professional's collection and a necessity for institutional libraries....Essential."-- Choice "A vital tool....Its no-nonsense approach and understandable style of summarizing the current research makes this a clear choice for the professional's collection and a necessity for institutional libraries....Essential."--"Choice"
