Clinician's Toolkit for Children's Behavioral Health provides a wealth of clinical tools, best practices, and research-based
recommendations on the behavioral health of children. Based on the current perspectives on behaviorism, social-cognitive theory
and attachment theory, the book reviews the evidence-base on developmentally appropriate methods to promote and reinforce
positive, prosocial behaviors in children. Each chapter covers the most recent evidence base on normal and atypical development
treatment parameters, best practices, and how to most effectively address issues with families, providing guidance on verbal
or physical aggression, punishment spirals, and other ineffective or potentially harmful methods.
best practices are outlined for addressing bedtime problems, toilet training, bullying behavior and victimization, the relationship
between somatic complaints, anxiety, and school refusal, problematic use of screen media, and more.
