Overview

Destructive Behavior in Developmental Disabilities: Diagnosis and Treatment by Travis Thompson

Injury to themselves and to other people, and damage to property by people with learning disabilities, is the subject of this interdisciplinary volume. Contributors address such topics as how to diagnose those among the developmentally disabled who will commit such acts, and how to measure the effectiveness of intervention and//or treatment programmes.

Among the related questions explored are: the epidemiology of self-injurious behaviour; developmental psychopathology of destructive behaviour; methods for studying these behaviours; biological and environmental interventions; and policy implications.
