The new edition of this valuable resource has been revised and updated to reflect recent changes in the education of students who have emotional and behavioral disorders. This edition is intended to refocus the instruction of disturbed and disturbing students while accommodating the current realities of classroom teaching. Interventions are examined through case studies, activities, and examples. The first unit provides techniques to aid the teacher in dealing with both the ecological influences on these students and the administrative duties integral to teaching special education. The second unit concerns the moral development of these students, and the third unit discusses rational-emotive behavior therapy as an intervention and as a mental health curriculum.
