Handbook of Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties

SAGE Publications (UK)
The behaviour of children in primary/elementary and secondary/high schools has been a consistent source of interest and controversy since the 19th century. As education systems in First World democracies struggle to meet changing social, economic and educational conditions, one group of children has increasingly become the focus of attention. These children are either unable or unwilling to conform to the requirements of formal schooling. As a result they are identified as having Emotional and/or Behavioural Difficulties (EBDs) of one level of severity or another. This book has divided these themes into three core sections. Each theme or topic is organized to highlight: (1) the key principles or characteristics; (2) examples of their impact on current practices; and (3) issues arising for debate. This book has been written to enable individual chapters to be useful resources for students, academics and practitioners. Twenty-seven chapters are divided into 4 parts: Part One-Context and Terminologies; Part Two-Roots and Causes; Part Three-Strategies and Interventions; and Part Four-Some Points of Tension and Development. An index is included at the end of the book. The following chapters are included: (1) "Themes and Dimensions of EBD: A Conceptual Overview" (Peter Clough, Philip Garner, John T. Pardeck and Francis Yuen); (2) "International Comparisons in EBD: Critical Issues" (Margret Winzer); (3) "Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties: An Historical Perspective" (Ted Cole); (4) "Defining Emotional or Behavioral Disorders: The Quest for Affirmation" (Kenneth A.
