What others have said
“Murray Irwin has solved a difficult puzzle.
This book succeeds on two levels. It offers a clear and practical guide for those with no formal training at all. And for professionals a tool for reflection on their own practice and helping others under their supervision.
To write about how to deal with challenging behaviour is a hugh challenge. This book rises above the challenge to provide a step by step approach that is effective. Murray Irwin has distilled years of experience working with young people in challenging circumstances into this practical guide.
I would recommend this book to anyone. Rating 5 stars”
