This book outlines a scientific approach to understanding and treating children and adolescents who display a severe pattern of aggressive antisocial behavior. Unlike other works which tend to focus exclusively on research data or practical guidelines for treatment approaches, this valuable reference integrates both of these aspects, providing clear guidelines for intervention based on the most current research. Outstanding features include 23 tables and figures, and two chapters detailing a comprehensive approach to treatment tailored to the needs of the individual child or adolescent.

Editorial Reviews

`Although written primarily for the professional, the book addresses a topic of high interest to the general public, given the recent increase in youthful violence and juvenile delinquency generally.' Choice (November 1998) `This book provides a useful framework for understanding and treating conduct problems. The applied-science approach used throughout the book is especially commendable, as is the use of concrete examples to illustrate the main ideas.' The Canadian Child Psychiatry Review, 8:3 (1999)
