Dr. Barkley's book (and the recently-published "Defiant Teens") is the current state-of-the-art treatment for oppositional-defiant children. I have used Dr. Barkley's methods with many families struggling to cope positively with an OD child. Our community frequently requests parenting workshops, and I always find myself turning to Barkley's works as a way to focus my presentations. There are many books for clinicians on this subject. For a research-based, instantly useable, positively-focused reference, buy this one.
