Chapter by chapter, Students and Adolescents with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders explores the most prevalent behavioral disorders encountered by school professionals as they work with today's students. Each disorder is addressed by type and each includes a discussion of the relevant characteristics, causes, prevalence, and current references, and treatment strategies.
