Educating Oppositional and Defiant Children
by Philip S. Hall and Nancy D. Hall
Oppositional and defiant children present a major challenge for teachers and other educators. Students with serious behavior disorders can become aggressive, disruptive, and even violent in class. But instead of becoming frustrated with this antisocial behavior, educators need to approach each child individually with patience and understanding. The authors illustrate the key concepts and techniques needed to successfully teach oppositional students.

If My Kid's So Nice...Why's He Driving Me Crazy?

Recognize and understand the roots of fifteen defiant behavior patterns, avoid 'lose-lose' situations fostered by inappropriate adult reactions, and stimulate a child's inclination to obey through a title written by an educator and psychologist who has studied oppositional behavior since the mid-1970s. Solutions to specific problems are presented as easily-applied formulas backed with case history scenarios.
