The third edition of the hugely successful Handbook of Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychologyincorporates important advances in the field to provide a reliable and accessible resource for clinical psychologists. Beginning with a set of general conceptual frameworks for practice, the book gives specific guidance on the management of problems commonly encountered in clinical work with children and adolescents drawing on the best practice in the fields of clinical psychology and family therapy. In six sections thorough and comprehensive coverage of the following areas is provided:
Frameworks for practice
Problems of infancy and early childhood
Problems of middle childhood
Problems of adolescence
Adjustment to major life transitions
Thoroughly updated throughout, each chapter dealing with specific clinical problems includes cases examples and detailed discussion of diagnosis, classification, epidemiology and clinical features. New material includes the latest advances in: child and adolescent clinical psychology; developmental psychology and developmental psychopathology; assessment and treatment programmes. This book is invaluable as both a reference work for experienced practitioners and as an up-to-date, evidence-based practice manual for clinical psychologists in training.
The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology is one of a set of 3 books published by Routledge which includesThe Handbook of Adult Clinical Psychology: An Evidence Based Practice Approach, Second Edition(Edited by Carr & McNulty) and The Handbook of Intellectual Disability and Clinical Psychology Practice(Edited by Alan Carr, Christine Linehan, Gary O'Reilly, Patricia Noonan Walsh and John McEvoy).
"Alan Carr has pulled off, with this textbook, an unusual and extraordinary feat: unusual in managing singlehandedly to produce a guide to clinical theory and practice with such a comprehensive range; extraordinary in formulating multi-system and developmental conceptual frameworks that succeed convincingly in integrating many of the themes and `loose ends' in child and adolescent clinical psychology. The author combines impressive scholarship and clinical knowledge in a reader-friendly book which should be of inestimable value to post-graduate clinical trainees and, indeed, to experienced practitioners." - Martin Herbert, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Child Psychology, University of Exeter
