Indeed, the number of practitioners trained in treating children and adolescents falls far short of what's called for. As a result, first-line practitioners, school counselors, therapists, and social workers-whether medically trained or not-are often called upon to be familiar with psychopathology in kids. With the types of presenting mental health issues in kids growing rapidly, this accessible handbook-organized around a range of common disorders for easy reference-uses evidence based practices to clearly explain to a range of practitioners how to understand, diagnose, and treat them.
