Helping Children with Aggression and Conduct Problems: Best Practices for Intervention.
Bloomquist, Michael L.; Schnell, Steven V.
Meeting a growing need among human service and education professionals, this book presents empirically supported guidelines for delivering effective services to 3- to 12-year-olds with aggression and conduct problems. The volume begins by reviewing the characteristics and developmental pathways of children with aggression and conduct problems. The authors delineate a developmental-multisystemic intervention model for reducing risk factors and promoting protective factors in child, parent/family, social/peer, and contextual life domains. Widely used screening and assessment methods are described and best practices identified, with special attention to cultural issues. The sections that follow offer coverage of the full range of interventions, including child and parent/family skills building, mental health treatments, school-based interventions, and community-based child and family support. Particular attention is given to strategies for coordinating multiple services and engaging families in intervention efforts. (Contains over 700 references.) (GCP)
