About this item

This guide explains how to treat behavioral and emotional difficulties in children from a developmental perspective. It discusses the foundations for working with children and their parents, including background on the development of psychopathology, assessment, and treatment; specific problems that can occur in childhood, namely eating and feeding problems, toileting problems, sleep difficulties, habits and tics, fears and anxieties, depression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and disruptive behavior; and life events that can cause stress in children and parents, including siblings and peers, divorce, and bereavement. Each chapter on a problem or event includes review of the literature, a guide to comprehensive assessment, specific treatment options, and a case example. This edition has been updated to reflect the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) and has new chapters on developmental disabilities and trauma and new discussions of pharmacological interventions. It includes obsessive-compulsive disorder in the chapter on habits and expands the chapter on siblings to include peer relationships. Each chapter adds information on medical interventions, with emphasis on pharmacological treatments. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
