Are you looking for effective strategies for cooperating with your 'difficult' students? Are you struggling to find motivational tools for students that appear to be angry, rude, cruel, erratic, or stubborn?

This book is an essential guide for school staff supporting students with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). Written by the author of The Parent's Guide to Oppositional Defiant Disorder: Your Questions Answered, this book debunks myths about ODD by providing psychiatric context, strength-based approaches and exploring the disorder through a holistic lens.

Supporting teachers in building and maintaining healthy relationships with ODD students, the book equips educators with the skillset to understand their students, identify and avoid common obstacles and prepare their students to thrive in and outside of the classroom. Packed with easy-to-use handouts, questionnaires and printable exercises, this guide is perfect for teacher training and group activities.
