From our regular book review column.

Parents frequently request guidance or materials from health and mental health professionals to manage problems experienced in raising defiant children. Intended for parents of both normally misbehaving and seriously conduct-disordered children, The Kazdin Method offers a comprehensive, evidencebased program to meet that need and serve as a reference for clinicians, teachers, and all core mental health professionals. Systematic ways to improve a child’s behavior are complemented by depictions of common mistakes parents make that actually reinforce negative, undesired actions and attitudes.
