emotional problems, learning disabilities, child protection, somatic illness, major depression, suicide, drug abuse, schizophrenia, divorce, foster care and bereavement. Each chapter opens with a broad chapter plan and case study, followed by sections on classification, epidemiology and
clinical features. Written with practice in mind, it includes a section on report writing.
Alan Carr's Handbook does an admirable job in providing immensely practical approaches for the assessment and treatment of mental health problems in young people, whilst also being critically and constructively informative on the findings of research and the claims of theories. The succinct listing of further readings for both professionals and families, together with details of useful web sites, at the end of each chapter is a particular strength.
