No Such Thing as a Bad Kid
Understanding and Responding to Kids with Emotional & Behavioral Challenges Using a Positive, Strength-Based Approach

By Charles D. Appelstein, MSW

Written specifically for professionals who guide kids with emotional and behavioral challenges, this empowering handbook is packed with principles and techniques to help child-guiders tap the potential for greatness that exists in every young person. It opens by portraying misbehavior as a call for help; provides a wealth of insight into “decoding” those messages; and presents hands-on, neurologically sound tips for effectively revolutionizing adult interactions with highly vulnerable kids in a variety of settings. Included are hundreds of empathetic strength-based interventions, charts, and sample dialogues. Parents of children not at risk will also benefit from this book.

†“This book offers a compelling framework for navigating the research and practices required to help at-risk children and youth get back ‘on the rails.’”††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
