This new edition of The Handbook of Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, first published in 2004, has been completely reworked and refreshed by a new editorial team led by Philip Garner.

Covering a range of important issues in EBD, chapters are organized into five main parts:

Contexts, Definitions and Terminologies

Strategies and Interventions
Training and Professional Development Enhancement
EBD Futures - Challenges and Opportunities

With an impressive array of UK, US and other international contributors, the Handbook will be indispensable for undergraduate and Master′s level students pursing Teacher Training, Educational and Developmental Psychology and Special Education courses. It will also be valuable to social workers, counsellors, school (educational) psychologists and other practitioners in relevant fields.
