Abstract

With the limited success of social skills training on particularly disruptive behaviors, researchers have begun to develop a more holistic approach grounded in temperament research that focuses on supporting underlying traits as they emerge during development. Based on this approach, this column provides a theoretical basis and practical guidelines for implementation, including tools for enhancing practitioner competence.
