Behavior Disorders of Childhood
This comprehensive, research-based text examines childhood behaviour by detailing the definition, description, prevalence, aetiology, assessment, treatment and special issues involved with specific disorders. Placing an emphasis on recent research findings and clinical case material, it demonstrates approaches for dealing with childhood behaviour disorders. Assuming that behaviour arises from the continuous interactions of many variables, this authoritative book offers links to current social concerns such as drug abuse, family transition, use of medication in children and educational mainstreaming. New material has been added to this second edition to expand the discussions of specific disorders and has been coupled with the reorganization of chapters for more logical progression in student learning. Other features include a greater integration of clinical and developmental psychology and a stronger conceptualization of risk and protection factors in psychopathology.
