Handbook of Infant Mental Health, Volume 236
Charles H. Zeanah
Guilford Press, 2000 - Psychology - 588 pages
This completely revised and updated second edition of the Handbook of Infant Mental Health reflects tremendous advances in theory, research, and practice that have taken place over the past decade. Grounded in a relational view of infancy, the volume offers a broad interdisciplinary analysis of the developmental, clinical, and social aspects of mental health from birth to age three. A comprehensive array of topics is covered, including development of the infant in context; developmental psychopathology; frequently encountered disorders of infancy; approaches to clinical assessment and intervention; and social policy applications. Chapters, most of which have new authorship, are written from a variety of scholarly and clinical perspectives. Entirely new chapters address such emerging areas of concern as the psychology and psychopathology of pregnancy, the neurobiology of foetal and infant development, assessment of the infant caregiver relationship, and a mental status exam for infants. Other new chapters examine gender identity disorder, infant massage, and training in infant mental health.
