From a review of the second edition:
"I would strongly recommend this book to all who teach or are training in clinical child psychology. The enthusiastically and vividly written text with all its facts and practical tips makes you aware how broad and interesting the job of a clinical child psychologist is."
—Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy
Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology
combines theory and practice to provide a concise yet comprehensive review of the knowledge, concepts and core competencies required for the practice of child and adolescent psychology.
For the third edition, this popular book now includes the clinical problems of adolescence, as well as an updated account of childhood clinical and community-based problems. The clinical literature has been fully revised, with special attention being given to treatment effectiveness.
Each chapter considers a different category of problem or disorder and covers issues of diagnosis, causes, interventions and outcomes. It provides step-by-step guides to assessment, formulation and treatment that can be used in everyday practice, and includes helpful examples and case studies. The theoretical framework for the book is developmental psychopathology and cognitive behavioural theory. It also covers psychiatric aspects such as medication and other physical therapies, and discusses multi-agency collaboration.
This engaging text, by one of the world’s foremost clinical child psychologists, remains a leader in the field. It will be of great value to all clinical psychologists in practice and those in training, as well as other key professionals working with children and young people.
