Overview

"That children are capable of pathology - not only such conditions as ADHD and learning disabilities, but also such "adult" disorders as anxiety and depression - stands as a defining moment in psychology's recent history. Within this recognition is the understanding that the social skills deficits that accompany these disorders must be targeted for assessment and treatment to ensure optimal functioning in school, with peers, and in later transitions to puberty and adulthood." Social Behavior and Skills in Children cuts across disciplinary lines to clarify the scope of assessment options and interventions for a wide range of disorders. A panel of leading scholars reviews current research, discusses social deficits unique to specific disorders, and identifies evidence-based best practices in one authoritative, approachable reference.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“Matson (Louisiana State Univ) provides a unique compilation of material addressing aspects of children’s social skills and their connections with developmental and physical disabilities and with psychopathology. … Although too challenging overall for undergraduates, this book could be a useful reference tool (with an instructor’s guidance) for those unfamiliar with technical material or with methods of research evaluation such as meta-analysis. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty, professionals.” (J. Mercer Richard, Choice, Vol. 47 (9), May, 2010)
