The Kazdin Method for Parenting the Defiant Child: With No Pill, No Therapy, No Contest of Wills

Article Abstract

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.
