Characteristics of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders of Children and YouthThe leader in special education for emotionally disturbed children and youth, this powerful text combines descriptions of emotional and behavioral disorders with discussion and interpretation of current research on their development. Material is organized around five basic concepts: the nature of disorders and conceptual approaches to them; methods and rationale for assessment; major casual factors; characteristics of disordered emotion and behavior; and a personal statement about teaching students who exhibit such disorders. An advocate for social learning principles, the author addresses the links between what happens in a real-life classroom and psychology, child development, and special education; and suggests ways in which emotional and behavioral development can be influenced for the better, particularly by educators.
This new casebook offers future special education teachers authentic glimpses into the lives of real children and youth. Each case is taken from the research and personal experiences of the author and selected contributors, and grouped by topic, to emphasize the connections between topics and all aspects of emotional and behavioral disorders. None of the cases is hypothetical; each is populated by children and youth in real events. The author introduces each case and suggests questions for class discussion to further the readers understanding of the concepts presented. This casebook is packaged free with the 8th edition of Characteristics of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders of Children and Youth and is also available as a standalone product.

A revised and updated edition of this leading introduction to emotional and behavioral disorders--the introduction which applies research in child development, psychology, and special education directly to the work of the classroom teacher.From the Back Cover:
A comprehensive classic.
The ninth edition of Kauffman’s classic text provides for its readers the most comprehensive overview and coherent conceptualization of the problems of students with emotional and behavioral disorders and the challenges their teachers and clinicians face. The unique framework of the text, five logically divided sections, each beginning with an introduction, aids professors and students alike to see and understand the big picture of the field and its issues, search the evidence that supports the identification and interpretation of the characteristics of students living with EBD, and learn about the necessary interventions teachers and clinicians use daily to address the needs of these students. It launches readers into a self-questioning mode and prompts them to think carefully and critically about behavior and its contexts. The ninth edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most recent updates in the field, including the importance of understanding and respecting cultural differences, more personal reflections and cases, and a new companion casebook that enhances the experience for all readers.
Features of the ninth edition include:
