Review quote

"Alan Carr has pulled off, with this textbook, an unusual and extraordinary feat: unusual in managing singlehandedly to produce a guide to clinical theory and practice with such a comprehensive range; extraordinary in formulating multi-system and developmental conceptual frameworks that succeed convincingly in integrating many of the themes and 'loose ends' in child and adolescent clinical psychology. The author combines impressive scholarship and clinical knowledge in a reader-friendly book which should be of inestimable value to post-graduate clinical trainees and, indeed, to experienced practitioners." - Martin Herbert, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Child Psychology, University of Exetershow more
