Clinical Child Psychology: Social Learning, Development and Behaviour
This book, like the first edition, will be recognised as a thoughtful and comprehensive text for students of psychopathology, and trainees in clinical psychology, and as a useful review of the latest knowledge of concepts and practice, for professionals concerned with child mental health in clinical, social and educational services, and within the community at large.
In this new edition, clinical formulation and therapeutic programme planning are introduced, and a range of new topics (e.g. suicide/parasuicide, PTSD, bereavement, eating disorders and Special Needs) are included. Other major areas such as Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Depression, and Autism, have been extended. There is greater emphasis on school-related problems, and psychology of health, as well more guidance on practical decisions and strategies of treatment. Effective childhood interventions can have huge importance, not only to children's lifelong development, but also to the wellbeing and happiness of parents and families. This book looks at childhood problems and interventions within a framework of normal development and learning, and a recognition of family influences and resources. The approach here is systemic and family-orientated. All those who knew the first edition, and those who are familiar with the work and enthusiasm of Martin Herbert, will welcome this book; others will quickly appreciate the value of this text by one of the world's leading clinical child psychologists.
From a review of the first edition: "... successful in bringing a clear sense of identity to clinical child psychology and showing how it relates to child psychiatry and other disciplines ... there are always useful comments and practical tips for clinical intervention ... this is an important book." Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry
