This is a practical examination of the behaviours that people with autism may exhibit that other people may find challenging. In order to help the autistic person to move on from these behaviours, it is important to understand their causes. The authors describe those characteristics of autism - sensitivity to environmental stimuli and difficulties with communication, problem solving, physical movement and emotional well being - which contribute to behaviours which other people may find unacceptable and which in some cases may be harmful to themselves. Drawing on research and on their own clinical experience, Clements and Zarkowska provide practical advice for dealing with challenging behaviour and for looking beyond it to solve the problem it manifests. They include useful tips on how to avoid reinforcing challenging behaviours and creating situations which might give rise to them, and principles for implementing strategies for change. [less]

In the developed world alone an increasing number of people have a severe learning disability leading to challenging behaviour. This can encompass aggression, self-injury, destructiveness, hyperactivity, inappropriate sexual or social conduct and bizarre mannerisms, which adversely affects the health and safety of both the sufferer and the carer.

This book is for parents, teachers and carers of youngsters with autistic spectrum disorders.

The progress made with children with conduct disorder in specialist schools often does not transfer to the home, but this book shows how behavioural parent training and applied behaviour analysis can help professionals work with parents to continue improving their child's behaviour. "Conduct disorder and behavioural parent training" provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of conduct disorder and the individual, familial and social factors that influence the development of persistent antisocial behaviour. The author presents thorough evidence for the effectiveness of the following aspects of behavioural parent training: compliance training; encouraging good behaviour through praise, enthusiasm and attention; using 'time out' as an effective punishment technique; transfer of improvements to school setting; and effects of treatment on the child's siblings. He considers the relative impact and costs of different settings for parent training, and outlines ethical issues and future directions for research in this area. This book is essential reading for all professionals involved in the care of children with conduct disorder, as well as psychology and social work students and academics. [less]
