Overview

Clinical and Educational Child Psychology: An Ecological-Transactional Approach to Understanding Child Problems and Interventions examines developmental patterns in children aged 3 to 18 and the challenges that influence their developmental trajectory. Adopting a transactional ecological perspective, Linda Wilmshurst explores the reasons why some children exposed to a variety of stressors may become vulnerable to a host of clinical, educational, and mental health problems. Initial chapters explore theoretical models and developmental milestones from early childhood through adolescence. Coverage also includes a variety of contemporary issues in the psychopathology of children and adolescents, with discussion of neurodevelopmental and disruptive behavior disorders, anxiety and mood disorders, attention and learning disorders, later onset disorders such as substance abuse and eating disorders, and issues of maltreatment that can result in trauma disorders.

Through an innovative presentation that combines clinical and educational psychological approaches, Clinical and Educational Child Psychology offers unique insights into our understanding of behavioral issues during the transition from childhood to adolescence.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“There is no shortage of books on developmental psychopathology, but what is unique about this one is the effort to bridge clinical and educational practice with school practice. It is very well conceptualized, and the ecological and transactional approach is very appropriate to the subject matter. In fact, it is the only framework capable of providing a full picture of children’s mental health problems. This book is highly relevant for psychologists working with children and families, as well as for teachers and special education professionals.”—Isaac Prilleltensky, PhD, Dean, School of Education and Human Development, Professor of Educational and Psychological Studies, Erwin and Barbara Mautner Chair in Community Well-Being, University of Miami
