Summary

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 problemsA startling percentage of child-behavior books are filled with advice that sounds reasonable, fits in with what parents believe already about child-rearing, and is-as Dr. Kazdin proves-guaranteed to fail. The Kazdin Method for Parenting the Defiant Child makes available to parents for the first time Dr. Kazdin's proven program-one 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."
