This article outlines general principles in assessing and managing reactive behavior in children. The outline can be applied to any child problem and further information is available in the references attached. The family physician is shown as the case manager in this instance, but his access to informed consultants is noted. It is for the physician to decide his limits of expertise and to inform himself appropriately. A sample case history is interspersed with comments in the article. It represents an amalgam of features and bears only coincidental similarity to any family. No specific treatment regimens are given, since their construction requires detailed case study and varies tremendously
