Overview

Practical and insightful strategies to help children thrive in adverse living conditions

Clinicians striving to intervene and provide treatment for children living under adverse circumstances often find themselves fighting a losing battle with forces beyond their control-drugs, disease, violence, and poverty-which reflect the everyday reality for these children and their families. In Handbook of Prevention and Treatment with Children and Adolescents, internationally recognized experts lay out state-of-the-art, empirically evaluated intervention strategies that deal directly with the sociodemographic forces that promote dysfunction and undermine treatment outcomes. Focusing on the issues and challenges faced by clinicians, this groundbreaking book provides practical, real-world solutions designed to mitigate the influence of negative environmental factors.

Coverage includes:

• The destructive influence of poverty and other social ills on child development

• Specific intervention formats and settings-from individual treatment to school- and community-based programs

• Particular problem areas and psychiatric disorders

• Early intervention and preventive approaches for such behavioral issues as substance abuse, antisocial behavior, and sexually transmitted diseases

• Recommendations for treatment of specific psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and posttraumatic stress
