Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Russell Barkley's new videotapes on children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) are a major step forward in the treatment of this difficult disability. They provide a basic understanding of ODD and proven interventions for its management. The information is practical, research validated, and very useful for clinicians, educators, and parents. A 'must' for anyone providing services to noncompliant, argumentative, and aggressive children."--William R. Jenson, PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Utah; Author of the Tough Kid Book
