Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(3), 211–212. Reviews the book, Taxonomy of Behaviour Disturbance by D. H. Stott, N. C. Marston, and Sara J. Neill (1975). This book describes the development of a scheme for the classification of children's behavior disturbances as observed by teachers in a school setting. The Bristol Social Adjustment Guides have now been under development some 18 years. The study represents the latest stage of revisions of the guides. One of the chapters is devoted to earlier classifications of behavior disturbance. Unfortunately, the title of the book will be misleading to clinicians and educators alike. The book and the taxonomic scheme should be of special interest to educators, school psychologists, juvenile delinquency authorities, and researchers. The guides provide an objective, easily completed procedure for identifying children and their behavior disturbances. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
