  • Synthesizes a vast literature and integrates findings into a comprehensive review of services for addressing behavioral crises in individuals with developmental disabilities
  • Details the decision-making process for treatment or program placement
  • World-class experts provide perspectives on best practices
  • Addresses a broad range of developmental disabilities and topics, from legal issues to organizational preparedness

The Handbook of Crisis Intervention and Developmental Disabilities synthesizes a substantive range of evidence-based research on clinical treatments as well as organizational processes and policy. This comprehensive resource examines the concept of behavioral crisis in children and adults with special needs and provides a data-rich trove of research-into-practice findings. Emphasizing continuum-of-care options and evidence-based best practices, the volume examines crisis interventions across diverse treatment settings, including public and private schools, nonacademic residential settings as well as outpatient and home-based programs.

Key coverage includes:

  • Assessment of problem behaviors.
  • Co-occurring psychiatric disorders in individuals with intellectual disabilities.
  • Family members’ involvement in prevention and intervention.
  • Intensive treatment in pediatric feeding disorders.
  • Therapeutic restraint and protective holding.
  • Effective evaluation of psychotropic drug effects.

The Handbook of Crisis Intervention and Developmental Disabilities is a must-have resource for researchers, scientist-practitioners, and graduate students in clinical child, school, developmental, and counseling psychology, clinical social work, behavior therapy/analysis, and special education as well as other related professionals working across a continuum of service delivery settings.
