Emotional and behavioral disorders prevent many children from reaching their full potential and continue to cause problems throughout their adult lives.

They offer strategies to improve children's lives by fostering well-being and confidence, empathy, pro-social behavior, creativity, and a sense of achievement as preventive measures for emotional and behavioral problems. Chapters cover:
- Parenting, parent-child interaction, and children's well-being
- A study of teenagers in Britain
- Research and practice in parenting programs
- Intervention programs that target parents
- The role of schools and educators
- Prevention of anti-social behavior
This book is from the Center for Research into Parenting and Children at Oxford University, England.
