Described is a Re-Ed (re-education) program for treating emotionally disturbed children (ages 6 through 12 years). The residential behavior modification program is discussed in terms of facilities (physical environment, length of program, and admission criteria), activities (such as field trips, yoga, and special education classes) staff and training (including ancillary services in the form of workshops, parent counseling groups, practicum or internship training, staff meetings, and demonstration programs), parent counseling (which includes effectiveness training and weekly sessions with the children's teachers), and costs (which depend on the area in which the facility is established). Brief sections are included on program evaluation and replication. A parent handbook relating to the Re-Ed program comprises the remaining half of the text and covers topics such as accreditation, placement, and behavior diaries in question-answer form. (SB)
