Aggressive Children-Case Studies

This page presents case studies about aggressive children.  This page is under construction. If you are interested in either of the case studies presented below contact Dr. O"Connor. She will let you know when these case studies are available for purchase.

Read  Dr. O'Connor's case studies about aggressive children. Two case studies are discussed below. These case studies can increase your understanding of children who exhibit high levels of aggression, and how to help.

The aggressive children featured in these case studies present  differently, and show varying types of aggressive behaviors. The aggressive behaviors they exhibit  play out differently for each child,  at school, at home and in the community.These children not only present differently, they require different intervention strategies. Children, who exhibit aggressive behaviors do not typically present in the same way.  Both the assessment, and intervention strategies must be tailored to the individual needs of the child or adolescent.

Each case study is designed to enhance  your understanding of aggressive children.  With increased understanding of how an aggressive child can present , and the kinds of intervention strategies that can help, you will be in a better position to promote positive outcomes in an aggressive child, despite the challenges he or she faces.

Remember -"Understanding the Problem is the Key to Solving It."  Each case study is designed to enhance  your understanding of aggressive children. With increased understanding of aggressive children you will be in  a better position to   to help promote positive outcomes in the aggressive children you care about or work with, despite the challenges they face. 

So how can these studies help ? As you read each one, think about the child  you are concerned about. How does his case compare with the case study? Does she or he exhibit similar concerns and behaviors? Which of his or her symptoms do you think suggest worrisome levels of aggression, and are similar to those the child in the case study shows? How serious do you think the aggressive behaviors that worry you are? And how do they inhibit the child’s ability to cope with the emotional, social, learning and/or behavioral challenges of his or her life? What stressors do you think have triggered high levels of aggression in the child you are concerned about? And what kind of strategies do you think could best help this child?

Further suggestions for using this case study to help you, help an aggressive child or adolescent, have been outlined in the the case study itself. 

If you feel these case studies can help  you, help  an aggressive child, you can purchse these case studies together, for a discounted price, or as a single item.
