The Science and Art of Using Temperament as the Basis for Intervention
Sandra Graham McClowry
Abstract: Temperament provides clinicians with a framework for appreciating and supporting the individual differences of children while prompting ways to handle skillfully their behavior. The science of temperament and its application also assists clinicians in exploring and improving the transactional patterns that occur between children and their environment at school and within their families. This article explores the science and art of temperament-based intervention and offers guidelines for practice and research.
