Understanding Your Child's Puzzling Behavior

Curtis, S.E. (2008). Understanding your child's puzzling behavior: a guide for parents of children with behavioral, social, and learning challenges. Bainbridge Island, WA: Lifespan Press. Call No. 40.2 .C8

As a parent it's often difficult to know if your child's puzzling behavior is a kid just being a kid, or indicative of a larger issue that requires professional help. If they do need professional help where do you start and what should you expect? Dr. Steven Curtis, a licensed children's clinical psychologist, has written a step by step to help parents answer these questions.

This book is divided into three main sections:
  • A framework for understanding and finding help for your child
  • Five steps to finding the right solution
  • Where and when to seek professional help
Throughout the text you'll find helpful worksheets and examples, easy to read tables and a glossary of pertinent terms. Also included is a parent resource guide for more information on a variety of subjects related to puzzling behavior.
