Schools often resort to ineffective, punitive interventions for the 10% of K-8 students whose challenging behavior interferes with their own and their classmates' learning. This book fills a crucial need by describing ways to provide meaningful supports to students with disruptive behavior disorders. Prominent authority Frank M. Gresham weaves together current research, assessment and intervention guidelines, and illustrative case studies. He reviews a broad range of evidence-based practices and offers recommendations for selecting, implementing, and evaluating them within a multi-tiered framework. Coverage includes school- and home-based approaches, multicomponent programs, prevention strategies, and social skills training.

"Serving the needs of children with disruptive behavior disorders is a major challenge for schools today. All readers, regardless of their professional training, will treasure this book. As he has done throughout his career, Gresham writes clearly and comprehensively about best practices. The singular focus on disruptive behavior disorders ensures complete coverage of etiology, assessment, treatment, and prevention. As a text, this book is equally well suited for special education and school psychology courses; instructors will find the 'Case Study Applications for Best Practices' especially useful. "--J. Ron Nelson, PhD, Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

"Gresham is a top leader in the field of emotional and behavioral disorders, and his experience and expertise are evident in this highly useful volume. The book offers a concise, practical, and thorough presentation of key issues in supporting positive outcomes for students with disruptive behavior disorders. The case studies concretely illustrate how to identify students with disruptive behavior disorders at the first sign of concern, and how to design, implement, and evaluate evidence-based strategies, practices, and programs within multi-tiered systems of support that are comprehensive and integrated."--Kathleen Lynne Lane, PhD, BCBA-D, Department of Special Education, University of Kansas

"This outstanding book is unlike anything I have seen in my 40-plus years of working with school-related behavior disorders. It meets a glaring need for a roadmap for assessment and intervention with this very at-risk and underserved student group. Gresham's knowledge of causal factors, intervention procedures, and assessment methods is unparalleled. Readers will emerge with a superb understanding of ways to improve the life chances of students with disruptive behavior disorders and meaningfully involve school staff and parents in the process."--Hill M. Walker, PhD, Department of Special Education and Clinical Sciences, University of Oregon

"Gresham provides a comprehensive perspective on the multifaceted issues involved in understanding and managing disruptive behavior disorders. The book describes evidence-based practices ranging from prevention and screening to tertiary-level interventions and in-home strategies for parents. This is an ideal resource for practitioners and educators who work directly in classroom settings with diverse learners. It should certainly be a required text for courses focused on school psychological services, school mental health, and multi-tiered systems of support for students experiencing emotional and behavioral challenges in schools."--Katina M. Lambros, PhD, BCBA-D, School Psychology Program, San Diego State University
