Disruptive behaviors are characterized by consistent patterns of ongoing, uncooperative, defiant and hostile behaviors. With these behaviors, teens continue to “break the rules.” All children break some rules, especially less important rules. More serious disruptive behavior is a normal part of maturing. Unfortunately, continued disruptive behavior negatively impacts the teen and every person the teen meets.
When teenagers are routinely disruptive, a mental health issue may be involved. As well as teaching teens the skills to identify and improve their behavior, one of the purposes of this book is for the facilitator to better understand teen behavior, not to diagnose it. If the facilitator believes a mental health issue is a possibility, a school counselor or trained clinician is recommended.

The workbook contains the following five modules:
Poor Impulse Control
Defiant Attitude
Hyperactive Behavior
Anger and Aggression
Erasing the Stigma of Mental Health Issues

Teens will have a chance to learn and practice a multitude of skills within each module, giving them the ability to move away from disruptive behavior.

About the Authors:

Ester Leutenberg has worked in the mental health profession for many years as an author, publisher and as an advocate for those suffering from loss. She personally experienced a loss when her son Mitchell, after struggling with a mental illness for eight years, died by suicide in 1986.

Soon after, as a way of both healing and helping others, she co-founded Wellness Reproductions & Publishing with her daughter Kathy Khalsa. Ester began developing therapeutic products that help facilitators help their clients. She is the co-author of theSEALS series for teenagers as well as Meaningful Life Skills for older adults, and the eight-book Life Management Skills series for adults.

Ester, a breast cancer survivor since 2003, has counseled other survivors in overcoming body-loss issues. Her involvements with Survivors of Suicide, the Coyote Task Force in Tucson, various support groups in Sun City Oro Valley and volunteering at two hospitals are among many ways she continues to feed her passion of helping mentally ill people, their facilitators and their families.

John J. Liptak is the Associate Director of Career Services and adjunct instructor in the Counselor Education Department at Radford University. He received his EdD in Counselor Education from Virginia Tech. He has worked in a variety of settings including a federal prison, a mental health center, a job training program, and now in higher education.

Dr. Liptak frequently conducts workshops on assessment-related topics. He has written seven books on career-related topics that have been featured in numerous newspapers including The Washington Post, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Associated Press. His work has also been featured on MSNBC, CNN Radio and on the PAX/ION television series, "Success Without a College Degree."

At Radford University, he works with college students entering internships or preparing for graduation and entrance in the workplace. Through individual coaching sessions, workshops, and classroom presentations he helps students develop the emotional intelligence skills they need to be effective in the world-of-work. He is teaching a senior-level course that will teach emotional intelligence skills to graduating seniors.

With Kathy Khalsa and Ester Leutenberg, John has written three comprehensive books for teachers and counselors to use with their students and clients: The Self-Esteem Program, The Social Skills Program, and The Stress Management Program: Inventories, Activities & Educational Handouts. With Whole Person Associates, he and Ester continue to co-write books to add to their Mental Health & Life Skills Workbook series, and their Teen Mental Health Series as well as the new Coping Series, the Mind-Body Wellness Series, and the Family Issues Series.

John resides in Radford, Virginia with his wife Kathy, and their Shih Tzu named "MacKenzie."
