Abstract

Managing resistance represents a major task for adults who work with children who display challenging behaviors. Some of these children are at risk for emotional and behavioral problems; others display academic difficulties such as those characteristic of learning disabilities. Various interventions have been developed for reducing noncompliant or oppositional behaviors and for getting adults to use clear, direct, specific, and contingent commands. Although these efforts have been met with some success, managing resistance continues to be a major treatment issue. In this article, several factors that inhibit managing resistance effectively are discussed, and options for expanding adults' repertoires of skills are presented.
