Authored by nationally-recognized scholar and behavioral consultant Dr. John W. Maag, this book focuses primarily on students' observable behaviors and the environmental factors that affect their expression. As Maag points out, behavior management is probably one of the most misunderstood concepts in education. Written in a very accessible style, this book demystifies stereotypical beliefs and misconceptions regarding the use of reinforcement, punishment, and self-control. Maag offers clear, but detailed descriptions of proven intervention techniques, supplemented by a range of step-by-step guidelines, sample forms, charts, graphs and illustrations that assist teachers in implementing these techniques. Although the techniques described in the book are based on a sound theoretical and empirical foundation, the author has limited the use of technical jargon throughout his presentation.

Dr. John W. Maag is a Professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where he specializes in the education and treatment of children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral disorders. His research interests include functional assessment, self-management training, and the assessment and treatment of depression and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Dr. Maag is a nationally recognized behavioral consultant on best practices for managing resistance and improving relationships with others. He has published over 80 articles and book chapters as well as authoring three books- one of which, "Parenting without Punishment," won a Parent's Choice award. He was also the recipient of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Distinguished Teaching Award. A licensed psychotherapist, Dr. Maag is a frequent public speaker and consulting editor to numerous journals.
