Tantrums, resistance to chores, negativity--occasional clashes between parents and children are not uncommon. But when a child's defiance is chronic and disruptive of family life, he or she may have Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). In this clear and accessible video program, leading authority Russell A. Barkley illuminates the nature of ODD and presents real-life scenes of family interactions and commentary from parents. Viewers gain state-of-the-science information about:
*How to distinguish ODD from milder forms of misbehavior
*Long-term outcomes for defiant children
*The relationship between ODD and ADHD
*What can be done to help children and families
Parents will find it easy to identify with the experiences of the subjects in the video....Would be a worthwhile addition to the video library of any clinic or clinician working regularly with parent groups in child management training. Individual clinicians will find the video a helpful means of imparting good quality information to parents."
