The director of the acclaimed Yale Parenting Center and
Child Conduct Clinic distills his thirty years of work with
children into a step-by-step method for parents -- with a
bound-in DVD featuring effective tips for common problems. A
startling percentage of child-behavior books are filled with
advice that sounds reasonable, fits in with what parents
believe already about child-rearing, and isas Dr. Kazdin
provesguaranteed to fail. The Kazdin Method for Parenting
the Defiant Child makes available to parents for the first
time Dr. Kazdins proven programone based on thirty years of
work with kids and backed up by the most long-term and
respected research devoted to any therapy for children.
Kazdin shatters decades worth of accumulated myths about
tantrums, time-outs, punishments fitting the crime, and much
more. Think you know how to use a reward or points chart?
How to praise your child? How to punish effectively? Think
again. With the practicality of Ferber and the warmth of
Brazelton, Kazdin leads parents through every step of the
Kazdin method in action -- how to use tone of voice, when
and how to touch, how to lead your child in a practice
session, how to adjust your approach for different-age
children, how to involve nonoffending siblings, and more.
The program is temporary, but the results are permanent --
for very young children to adolescents, and even beyond.
This is the lifesaving handbook for parents of children who
are occasionally, or too often, out of control.
