Understanding Behavior

Now available! Understanding Behavior (Second Edition) by Jane Paulsen, PhD and Arik Johnson, PsyD.

Thanks to a generous educational grant, HDSA is able to offer this updated guide available to HD families and their medical professionals at no cost.

Since the first edition of Understanding Behavior was published in 2000, much has been added to our understanding about HD including behavioral changes that take place along the continuum of the disease.

Written specifically for medical professionals, this second edition contains strategies that can be shared with caregivers as well as case studies that illustrate many of the most challenging behaviors associated with HD.
