Based on the authors' extensive literature review and their own clinical experience, this book offers readers a solid understanding of child behavior disorders. The authors' interdisciplinary approach makes the text appropriate for courses in many fields, such as child psychotherapy, social work, family sociology, nursing, and public health. The authors also avoid unnecessary technical terms and infuse every chapter with many useful study tools. Incorporating DSM-IV-TR guidelines and attention to assessment and treatment throughout, Understanding Child Behavior Disorders is balanced, comprehensive, and accessible.
