What To Do When: Practical Guidance Strategies for Challenging Behaviors in Preschool, 6E is a reference intended to help professionals work effectively with young children whose behaviors are challenging. It begins with a series of chapters that provide developmentally appropriate guidelines for working with challenging behaviors. Included is discussion of a range of guidance techniques and their theoretical underpinnings; consideration of why children misbehave; exploration of effective preventive techniques through setting up an inviting and supportive environment; discussion of children with special needs; and a focus on the importance of working with parents. These fundamental chapters are followed by nearly 40 other chapters that present very specific guidelines for handling a range of common behavioral concerns. Some examples of these concerns include hitting, biting, name-calling, non-participation in activities, non-compliance, disruptive behaviors, pant-wetting, and overeating. Each chapter presents a step-by-step approach to changing such behaviors to more socially appropriate ones. Now included is a CD-ROM that contains additional resources including guidelines for careful observation and record keeping, scenarios for use in practicing applying the techniques presented in the book, and a listing of books, articles, and web sites for further study. Readers will appreciate the new features and benefits included in this tried-and-true book.
