Wood, Frank H.
Education and Treatment of Children, v17 n3 p302-11 Aug 1994
Using excerpts from structured interviews conducted by teachers, this paper discusses three thought and behavior patterns commonly used by students with behavior disorders to justify behavior teachers consider inappropriate: (1) denial, (2) projection, and (3) rationalization. Suggestions are made about how to respond to these defensive behavior patterns. (DB)
