’This important revision with updated material will inform professionals, students, and the interested public of evolving international perspectives on EBD. New chapters consider causation, the influence and role of social contexts and social support, ADHD, teacher knowledge and parental engagement. The new content presents us with fresh ideas and approaches.’ - Katherine Bilton, University of Alaska, USA This new edition of The Handbook of Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, first published in 2004, has been completely reworked and refreshed by a new editorial team led by Philip Garner. A thorough revision of existing content, together with new material, bring the volume firmly up-to-date, and offers guidance and recommendations for future research and practice. Covering a range of important issues in EBD, chapters are organized into five main parts: • Contexts, Definitions and Terminologies • Roots, Causes and Allegiances • Strategies and Interventions • Training and Professional Development Enhancement • EBD Futures - Challenges and Opportunities With an impressive array of UK, US and other international contributors, the Handbook will be indispensable for undergraduate and Master’s level students pursing Teacher Training, Educational and Developmental Psychology and Special Education courses.
