Assessment and Treatment of Childhood Problems, Third Edition: A Clinician’s Guide



This highly accessible work, now thoroughly revised, has shown thousands of students and clinicians how to assess and treat children’s emotional and behavioral difficulties from a developmental perspective. The authors provide a sound understanding of typical development (ages 2-12) and the risk and protective factors for psychopathology. Chapters on common psychological disorders and family stressors describe the nature of each problem, review evidence-based treatments, and offer step-by-step guidelines for intervention, illustrated with helpful case examples. A comprehensive framework for assessing children and planning treatment is used throughout. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the book’s 24 reproducible forms and handouts in a convenient 8 1/2″ x 11″ size.
