Clinical Child Psychology: Social Learning, Development and Behaviour
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 second edition of Clinical Child Psychology, looks at childhood problems and interventions within a framework of normal development and learning, and a recognition of family influences and resources.
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. The approach here is systemic and family-orientated. A book of much value by one of the world's leading clinical child psychologists.
