Overview

This popular book guides clinicians and students in assessing and treating common childhood problems. Written in a highly accessible style, the volume presents an overview of healthy development, examines risk and protective factors for psychopathology, and spells out a behaviorally oriented model of assessment and treatment planning for children aged 2-12. Each problem-focused chapter reviews the literature on the topic at hand and provides step-by-step guidelines for practice, illustrated with helpful case examples. Featuring appendices that describe widely used assessment instruments, the book also contains more than 20 reproducible measures, clinical forms, and parent handouts, ready to photocopy and use.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The second edition of Assessment and Treatment of Childhood Problems has made one of the best books in the area even better. What makes this book stand out is its unique blend of thorough scholarship, clinical insight, and practical application tips. I treasured the first edition and am delighted that it has been updated. A 'must' for the library of any clinician who works with children."--C. Eugene Walker, PhD, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center

"This is the most comprehensive, practical, evidence-based text currently available on the problems of children. Schroeder and Gordon's systematic biopsychosocial approach is invaluable for teaching students the multiple contributors to health and dysfunction in childhood--from temperament and biology to parenting, peers, schooling, and other environmental factors. The book also offers detailed descriptions of possible treatment options, including pharmacology, behavior therapy, and parent education. It explains how to conduct a balanced assessment of child and family strengths and vulnerabilities, leading to a comprehensive treatment plan that is both supportive and effective. Also invaluable are the tables that provide practical advice to give parents, based on scientific and clinical evidence. In short, this is the definitive text on the topic."--Susan H. McDaniel, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Wynne Center for Family Research, University of Rochester

"Extensively revised and expanded, this comprehensive text provides a masterful synthesis of the current research underlying evidence-based assessment and treatment for children. The book offers amazingly detailed, practical, highly readable 'how-tos' for managing virtually every psychological or behavioral problem likely to be encountered in clinical child or pediatric practice."--Sheila Eyberg, PhD, ABPP, Department of Clinical and Health Psychology, University of Florida

From The Critics
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: "This second edition provides a revised and fully updated discussion regarding the development, prevalence, chronicity, and treatment of various childhood disorders. The book focuses on children aged 2-12 years old, and this is a population which is of considerable interest within the field. This second edition replaces the previous which was published 11 years ago. "
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to reflect the various changes which have occurred in the field of child psychopathology and developmental psychopathology since the last edition. Ultimately this book reflects "the state-of-the-field" including the latest research in the assessment and treatment of children and addresses the diagnostic questions which continuously prevail and are debated such as bipolar disorder. These are unquestionably worthy objectives and of considerable benefit to the field. The book meets and exceeds the authors' objectives.
Audience: Child psychologists and psychiatrists will find this book of considerable importance. It will be an excellent text for advanced students in psychology and psychiatry, as well as researchers. The authors are credible, the writing is non-verbose, detailed yet direct, and results in a solidly relevant compendium of the current research on childhood disorders.
Features: The book is broken down into three sections. The first section discusses the development of psychopathology and assessment to intervention. The second section explores the management of common problems such as eating disorders, habits and tics, sleep, depression, and ADHD. I especially found the chapter on depression and the discussion of bipolar disorder highly valuable and appropriately referenced with the latest findings. The third and final section discusses the management of stressful life events such as divorce, siblings, and bereavement. The tables and figures provide for fairly good illustrations of the major points in the book, and the index is appropriate. The appendices, which give descriptions of assessment instruments and also provide over 20 reproducible measures, clinical forms, and parent handouts for the clinician to photocopy and use, are one of the book's highlights.
Assessment: One of the best written books on assessment and treatment of childhood problems. I highly value and recommend this book as this is one of the year's best contributions to our field.
