Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties Research Journal

The central intention of Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (EBD) is to contribute to readers' understanding of social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, and also their knowledge of appropriate ways of preventing and responding to EBDs, in terms of intervention and policy.

The journal aims to cater for a wide audience, in response to the diverse nature of the professionals who work with and for children with EBDs. EBD is posted FREE to SEBDA members. Becoming a SEBDA member is the most cost efficient means of securing access to this important resource.
