Experts share research results and practices that have proven successful in helping young people who suffer from psychiatric and medical disorders. Offering evaluation methods and treatment programs, the occupational therapist has joined the team of professionals in public schools, residential facilities, and psychiatric hospitals whose job it is to identify the special problems of children and adolescents. Included in the book are discussions of the patient groups a therapist might work with--pediatric bone marrow patients, chemically dependent adolescents, emotionally disturbed children in a public school--and possible treatment approaches. Other topics include the model of human occupation, a program for psychiatrically impaired adolescents, evaluation and treatment of adolescents on a short-term unit, and more.
