This text uses a straightforward approach and a highly personalized tone to present research and teaching practices, emphasizing the effects of disabilities on the lives of individuals, their families, and their teachers. Themes of commonality and collaboration encourage respect, minimize teacher anxiety, and de-emphasize the typical clinical approach to this content. "Portfolio Activities" help students prepare for their careers and provide resources such as online templates. Multicultural coverage has been fully integrated as a result of the advisory work of nationally known specialist Festus Obiakor (University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee). Enhancements to the companion Web site provide greater integration of print and online content, as well as links to further research on special education. This updated version includes an 8-page insert highlighting the 2004 IDEA Reauthorization Legislation—the history of this important legislation, why the reauthorization was needed, and what the changes included—as well as a table correlating the new HM Video Cases to specific chapters in the book. Award-winning HM Video Cases have been added to the Online Teaching and Study Centers. These 4- to 6-minute cases present actual classroom scenarios that depict the complex challenges and opportunities teachers face every day. They are accompanied by classroom "artifacts," viewing questions, key terms, and bonus videos.

Disturbed children constitute a sizeable and varied percentage of the child population. Generally, two to three percent have severe, longstanding problems and 20 to 30 percent have current, more transient problems. While preventive efforts are needed, it also seems obvious that many children will continue to function in a disturbed and disturbing fashion and will continue to require vari ous kinds of therapeutic interventions. These interventions will mainly occur in school and community settings. This book attempts to present a picture of some fairly popular models of intervention and to consider important related issues. There are probably as many ways of coping with disturbed children as there are creative, caring persons attempting to do the coping. A growing literature exists on ways of conceptual izing and intervening with such children. It was believed by the editor that an organized body of information on these concepts and techniques would prove useful to student and practitioner. A danger with such collections is that if they mainly portray novel or atypi cal techniques, while informative, the book quickly becomes passe and of li mited value. This book's focus is on contemporary thought, but also on orien tations that have stood the test of some time and the stability of the under lying theory.
