Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Grounded in research and chock full of practical advice, this concise and well-organized volume is an absolute 'must' for any professional whose work touches on the mental health of preschool and kindergarten children. Undergraduate and graduate students, too, will appreciate the step-by-step manner in which the authors provide guidance, even to the level of ready-to-use instruction sheets for parents, behavioral coding sheets for clinicians, and sample wording for delicate situations. I simply can't imagine any reader who wouldn't breathe a sigh of relief at having found such a complete and useable resource."--Linda Acredolo, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California-Davis

"This book is unique in that it provides, in one volume, empirically based knowledge and useful forms and handouts for professionals working with young children. Covered are a wide range of prevention and intervention strategies for diverse emotional and behavioral problems that young children may exhibit. The clinical materials provided will help the reader readily apply this information to actual practice. This is an ideal text for graduate-level courses and practica in psychology, social work, counseling, and other fields related to early childhood problems and treatment."--Mark D. Shriver, PhD, Munroe-Meyer Institute for Genetics and Rehabilitation, University of Nebraska Medical Center

"This book is a practical guide to the understanding and treatment of many common problems of early childhood. As a school counselor at the elementary level, I see this book as a valuable desk reference for school counselors and psychologists. Easy-to-access charts, tables, and forms at the end of each chapter add to the practical nature of this book and increase its usefulness to the busy professional."--Janice Miller, MEd, elementary school counselor, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
