Industry Reviews

"Chess and Thomas' masterly intuition led to the scientific discovery that innate temperament has a major influence on the child's development and behavior as well as on the parents' attitude. This notion has now impacted the whole field of child psychiatry and psychology and allied disciplines. Clinical practitioners involved with children and families must read this book, eminently practical and humanistic, and especially written for them." --Michel Maziade, M.D., FRCPC, Scientific Director and Professor of Psychiatry, Laval University, Quebec, Canada "The reissue of this seminal book in a paperback format should attract a wide readership among those professionals who work with children and their families. We have the opportunity to amplify the work of Chess and Thomas by extending it into the wider community of health care settings, schools, and parent organizations. Chess and Thomas have given us a remarkable legacy of understanding and knowledge which we in turn can use for the positive growth and well-being of those in our care." --From the Foreword by Marc A. Forman "This book serves as a useful reference for practicing professionals and for students in a variety of educational programs. This book is useful to graduate students as they work to make the transition in understanding temperament from the classroom to the clinic setting. Through the years, Drs. Chess and Thomas have generously given their time to help researchers, clinicians, and students understand and apply their research and clinical findings. The case studies show how uniquely sensitive they are to the needs of both children and their parents--a hard balance for many professionals who work with children and their parents." --Nancy Melvin, Ph.D., R.N., FAAN, Professor & Associate Dean for Graduate Programs & Research, Arizona State University, College of Nursing "All clinicians treating children should understand how temperament 'works.' To that end, Drs. Stella Chase and Alexander Thomas have packed over forty years of clinical wisdom into the pages of Temperament and Clinical Practice. This is essential reading, not just for pediatricians and nurse practitioners, but for teachers, pediatric social workers, health educators, and any other professional dealing with children. A definite must on the Required Reading List for training in these fields." --James R. Cameron, Ph.D., Kaiser Permanente Temperament Program
