New Approaches to Understanding, Identifying, and Managing Students with Severe Behavior Problems


Professor Paul J Frick,

Louisiana State University / Australian Catholic University

Professor Paul Frick is a Professorial Fellow at the Institute for Learning Sciences & Teacher Education. He will present a summary of his research investigating the different developmental pathways that can lead children and adolescents to display serious behavioral problems, including aggression. His work has particularly focused on one pathway that involves failures in the normal development of empathy, guilt, and other forms of prosocial emotions. He will summarize how his work has informed mental health diagnosis of children with severe behavior problems and how his work has led to more effective treatments for children and adolescents with serious behavior problems in mental health clinics, schools, and the juvenile justice system.
