Assessment and Treatment of Childhood Problems: A Clinician's Guide
Edition 2 Revised edition
OverviewNow in a revised and updated second edition, this book guides clinicians and students in assessing and treating common childhood problems. Written in an accessible style, the volume presents an overview of healthy development, examines risk and protective factors for psychopathology, and spells out a behaviourally oriented model of assessment and treatment planning for children aged 2-12. Each problem-focused chapter reviews the literature on the topic at hand and provides step-by-step guidelines for practice, illustrated with helpful case examples. Updated throughout, the second edition features entirely new chapters on depression, eating problems, and ADHD. Other topics covered include disruptive behaviours, fears and anxieties, disturbances related to toileting and sleep, sibling conflicts, and issues surrounding parental divorce and bereavement. Featuring appendices that describe widely used assessment instruments, the book also contains over 20 reproducible measures, clinical forms, and parent handouts, ready to photocopy and use.
