This book offers a coherent conceptualization of the problems of students with emotional and behavioral disorders and their challenges for teachers. It is divided into five logical parts, each with an introduction. It launches students into self-questioning and prompts readers to think carefully and critically about behavior and its contexts. The approach helps professors and students get the big picture of the field and its problems and look for evidence to support identification and interpretation of the characteristics of students with EBD and the interventions teachers and clinicians use to address these students'needs.
