Summary

This book offers empirically based approaches to assessment, treatment, and prevention of certain childhood disorders encountered by psychologists and other practitioners in child clinical and pediatric psychology settings. In so doing, it views disorders from a developmental and health psychology perspective that emphasizes prevention of problems as well as positive coping strategies. Traditional topics such as autism and childhood depression are addressed, as are topics that have only recently emerged in the psychological literature. These include childhood diabetes, headaches, psychological aspects of teenage pregnancy, and early development of substance abuse.
