What People are saying about this

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
