Editorial Reviews

Twenty-five contributions emphasize a process of treatment that involves the identification of the problem behavior and its function, and the formulation and evaluation of the intervention. The authors also note the importance of ecological considerations, functional assessment, and behavioral consultation. After an initial discussion of the foundations of child behavior therapy, particular problem behaviors are grouped according to the setting in which they are usually manifested.
