What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Readers [of this text] will learn an immense amount about risk and protective factors, about development, about clinical disorders, and about neuroscience, but most of all they will be helped in how to think about the issues as they will arise in the future and not just as they face us today."
Michael Rutter, Professor of Developmental Psychopathology, Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College, London UK
