Working with Troubled Children

How to recognize behavior problems early and find solutions fast

The authors write, "The lives of young people with behavior problems tend to be among the least satisfying of all...their happiness and quality of life, their academic and social progress in school, their employment, and their adult life course will compare unfavorably to those of others." In addition, their families suffer, their teachers often become dismissive of their chances, and peers tend to avoid them. Coauthor James Kauffman, former head of the Education Department at the University of Virginia, says it doesn’t have to be that way.
