Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Christophersen and Mortweet both teach pediatrics (U. of Missouri-Kansas City) and practice clinical psychiatry (Children's Mercy Hospital) and so combine the two professions parents frequently consult for help with childhood problems ranging from sleep disorders to anxiety. In the midst of a plethora of theories about what therapies work best, they assess available treatments that have documented records of success, and in many cases point to treatment manuals that are available to help clinicians implement them. Clinicians are their intended readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Pierre R. Nunez, PhD (Cermak Health Services)
Description: The authors describe the current therapeutic intervention approaches for anxiety, sleep, disruptive behavior, pain, and eneuretic and encopretic problems. Research efficacy in outcome studies is included in discussion of the major interventions.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a single source that outlines the current "gold standard" of therapeutic approaches to childhhod problems. This is an important objective in child psychology, and the authors do an outstanding job of compiling information and treatment recommendations in a succinct and highly readable format.
Audience: This book is targeted to mental health professionals, medical professionals, and other social service professionals who work with child populations. In addition, students and trainees in mental health and related fields will find the book an extremely useful reference. The first author has more than 30 years' experience as a clinician and faculty member at the University of Missouri School of Medicine, and is a highly respected authority in the field of child psychology.
Features: The book covers such childhood problem areas as enuresis and encopresis, anxiety, pain, disruptive behavior, and habit disorders. Of these areas, the sections on enuresis and encopresis are especially thorough and comprehensive. Not covered are such topics as childhood depression, attachment and related psychopathology, and such developmental disorders as autism and Asperger's Syndrome. Despite these omissions, the book is highly useful in its coverage of childhood behavioral problems.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for practitioners who work with children in a variety of settings, and is highly useful to students and trainees as well. The sections on enuresis and encopresis alone are praiseworthy and represent a valuable contribution to the field. Practitioners in medical settings will appreciate the sections on pain management and adherence to pediatric medical regimens. This is a very fine contribution to the field of child therapeutic intervention.
