Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A guide to modern child and adolescent clinical psychology, covering all central concerns, including conduct problems, learning disabilities, depression, drug abuse, and foster care. After a section on developmental and diagnostic frameworks, later sections describe problems of early and middle childhood and adolescence and give guidelines for assessment and management. Other sections deal with child abuse and neglect, and with clinical problems associated with major life transitions. Each chapter opens with a chapter plan and case study. Carr is director of the doctoral program in clinical psychology at University College Dublin, Ireland. He is on the editorial board of two journals on family therapy and child-centered practice, and has published two previous books on family therapy. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher

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.

Michael Rutter, Institute of Psychiatry, London

This text stands as the clearest and most comprehensive account of therapy and practice in the field of child and adolescent mental health. This second edition will have an impact that establishes it as the text of choice for students, practitioners and trainers.

Arlene Vetere, University of Surrey
