Now-with the publication of this expanded and updated 3rd Edition-the classic compendium on child and adolescent behavior disorders is even more useful than ever! Acclaimed as the standard against which other books on the subject are measured, The Practice of Child Therapy is an authoritative, treatment-oriented, one-volume reference...a "must have" resource for any practicing or potential child therapist.KET TOPICS: The book presents summaries of the latest research findings and related treatment procedures on the disorders most often encountered by those practicing in applied settings (e.g., clinic and counseling centers, schools, homes and hospitals). The primary emphasis is on intervention techniques and strategies for changing behaviors. Etiology and assessment are also discussed. Its 17 chapters-written and updated by 37 experts in their fields-cover a wide range of topics: obsessive compulsive disorders, childhood depression, childhood fears and phobias, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, academic problems, conduct disorder, somatic disorders, childhood autism, mental retardation, children medically at risk, psychopharmacotherapy, and the legal and ethical issues in child therapy. New for the 3rd Edition are chapters on post-traumatic stress syndrome, sexual and other abuse, and behavior informatics-the use of computer technology in child therapy prevention. Recommended as an instant resource for psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers-any professional who works with disturbed children or adolescents.

Incl. obsessive compulsive disorders, fears & phobias, academic problems, sexual abuse, psychopharmacotherapy etc.

Editorial Reviews

Presents a systematic review and detailed discussion of treatment procedures for children's learning and behavior disorders, in which discussion of available treatment techniques takes precedence over conceptual and theoretical issues. After an overview of the historical context of child therapy, a section on intervention strategies for specific behavior disorders covers areas including obsessive compulsive disorders, depression, phobias, ADHD, autism, mental retardation, and PTSD. A third section reviews psychopharmacotherapy and discusses behavioral informatics, prevention, and related legal issues. This third edition is enlarged and expanded.
