This authoritative manual presents an accessible 18-step program widely used by clinicians working with challenging teens. Steps 1-9 comprise parent training strategies for managing a broad range of problem behaviors, including those linked to oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Steps 10-18 focus on teaching all family members to negotiate, communicate, and problem-solve more effectively, while facilitating adolescents' individuation and autonomy. Practical reproducible handouts and forms are included; the print book has a large-size format and lay-flat binding to facilitate photocopying. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

"The second edition of Defiant Teens does an outstanding job of bringing together parent management training and parent-adolescent problem-solving communication training. The skills taught in this program have a long history of empirical support and are presented in a straightforward and systematic manner that facilitates effective implementation. Clinicians can use this book to help families with adolescents live more harmoniously. Instructors should consider adding it to the reading lists of child and adolescent behavior therapy courses."--Rex L. Forehand, PhD, University Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of Vermont

"The talents and clinical insights of two preeminent scholars in child and adolescent mental health are united in this practical and well-conceived treatment manual. Defiant Teens, Second Edition, provides well-validated, family-based intervention protocols to help adolescents get back on track in their family relations, friendships, and school functioning. A valuable resource for any mental health professional working with adolescents."--Scott W. Henggeler, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (retired), Medical University of South Carolina

"Defiant Teens continues to be the authoritative clinical guide for those helping families cope with challenging teens. Clinicians may rest assured that this updated second edition is even better, enhanced by inclusion of the latest research and honed by many years of clinical work with families. Since school issues are a major source of family conflict, I find the section on school interventions to be invaluable."--Chris A. Zeigler Dendy, MS, author of Teaching Teens with ADD, ADHD and Executive Function Deficits, Second Edition
