Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"McClure and Teyber have written an excellent casebook that analyzes mental health problems that children and adolescents may experience. Importantly, the analysis is embedded within a cultural context. The casebook reviews symptoms and causes of disorders and then presents cases that illustrate key points in the discussion. The cases are explored with depth, and the rationale for using certain treatment strategies are thoughtfully discussed within a cultural context. This book is a valuable contribution and should be read by mental health professionals as well as advanced undergraduates or graduate students in the helping professions."

"This book speaks to real-life problems experienced by children and adolescents today, problems that are serious, complex, and challenging to talented, seasoned counselors. It provides an in-depth discussion of intervention techniques, including scripts of important exchanges between the counselor and client. Each chapter contains detailed background information about the crisis category of interest and the pertinent multicultural issues that apply, thus providing the context in which the interventions can be better understood."

From The Critics
This casebook is written for counselors-in-training. Problems addressed here are ones that are regularly presented by children and adolescents in schools, daycare settings, outpatient treatment centers, medical facilities, and group homes. Depression, antisocial behaviors, rape trauma, and sexual and racial identities are some problems illustrated by the cases. Each case reviews the causes of common problems, defines symptoms and characteristics, and tells how to address the problems in treatment. The authors teach in the Psychology Department at California State University-San Bernardino. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
