Review quote

This text's greatest strength lies in the breadth of the content covered. The amount of information included in the text is impressive. I find that the changes, updates, and additions strengthen the text, which is already of high quality. ?An outstanding text with first-rate current researched information. Updated and new topics such as Childhood Depression, Resilient Children, and Poverty and Homelessness are just a few examples that make this text exceptional! The topics are explored enough to allow understanding and comprehension, and the case studies and examples connect the concepts presented. It is essential that the correlation be made between theory and application of concepts, and this text does an admirable job. The revisions suggested by the authors really strengthen the content, research base and overall appeal of the text. Each chapter contains significant revisions to update and upgrade the text. I felt there was a stronger and very current research base and the information added will be useful to parents and teachers alike. 'An outstanding text with first-rate current researched information.
