In six sections, thorough and comprehensive coverage of the following areas is provided: frameworks for practice; problems of infancy and early childhood; problems of middle childhood; problems in adolescence; child abuse; adjustment to major life transitions. Each chapter dealing with specific clinical problems includes detailed discussion of diagnosis, classification, epidemiology and clinical features, as well as illustrative case examples. This book will be invaluable both as a reference work for experienced practitioners, and an up-to--date, evidence-based practice manual for clinical psychologists in training.
