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. Kazdin shatters decades’ worth of accumulated myths about tantrums, timeouts, punishments fitting the crime, and much more.
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. 268 pages. 2008.
