Bukstein, Oscar Gary His long and varied experience with oppositional adolescents combined with an ability to integrate psychodynamic and behavioral theory gives us a model text.
This wonderful handbook for mental health professionals is so clear and sensible that parents, teachers, judges, clergy, and policy makers will be able to find out for themselves what makes problem kids tick and what to do about it. The techniques offered for 'selling' therapy to the negative antisocial youngster alone are worth reading the book.
It's a jewel written by someone who obviously has spent many hours nimbly sliding past the rage and distrust to touch the humanity at the core of all these young people. Show More Show Less.

How will he ever get a job? How will he ever live on his own?
Oppositional Defiant Disorder -
What is going to happen to him? Kids who grow up like that can have a really tough time as adults. You have a difficult kid on your hands, I can see that. I love Caleb, really, I do.
What is wrong with me? I can show you how to do that, as well as how to set limits with him, help him develop coping skills, and how to treat people better.
The rest will be up to him. I know he was diagnosed with ODD, and that is a tough disorder to live with.
These kids are resistant to anything you propose, and they defy rules and expectations pretty globally. Kids with ODD trust no one, and they think the world is trying to pull the wool over their eyes. They blame everyone else for their problems and are constantly making excuses for their own inability to manage things. Their automatic response is to disagree and to argue. Arguing and yelling gives them a sense of being in control. For some reason, being told what to do sets off a sense of powerlessness in a kid like this, a fear of not being in control, so arguing is the way he tries to wrestle that control back.
Believe me, I got their number, Ben. But before we do anything else, we must work on keeping your girls safe, and we must teach them how not to be physical or emotional victims. If Caleb wants to use the computer for three hours, let him use the computer for three hours. They can have the computer for three hours after you get home. And you need to tell Caleb that getting physical is not allowed in the family. They sat on his bed and told him they needed to speak with him.
Caleb looked surprised. We need to have a serious talk.
You hit her with a sneaker and gave her a black eye. Ben and Monique followed him while Caleb continued to swear. Ben found himself turning up the volume of his own voice to try to drown out the swearing. When they arrived a few minutes later, Caleb was screaming at his parents to leave him alone.
Ben filled the police in, and the officers took Caleb aside. They told him he had to do what his parents wanted or they could press charges. He spent the rest of the night in his room. Caleb came to see me the next week. We talked about what happened with his sister.

All little sisters are brats. But hitting her with a sneaker almost got you locked up. That just keeps it going. I could leave the room. And when you leave the room, where would you go? Monique, Ben, and Caleb continued to see me for six more months and put in six months of hard work. They began a reward system that allowed Caleb to earn extras for making the right choices. Eventually he earned his own computer in his room. Monique and Ben have told him that if he continues on the right track, he can stay in the house.
Although she knows the war is not over, she hopes it is at a cease-fire. In the book, James shares stories based on thirty years of working with parents to manage behaviors ranging from back talk and lying to outbursts caused by ADHD and Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
