Book Description

25 Mar 2009 1846191092 978-1846191091 3rd Revised edition

Previous editions of the Handbook have built its reputation as the definitive guide to using child surveillance to promote the health, welfare and life chances of children. This new edition remains as authoritative as ever, whilst encompassing recent developments in the field. Child surveillance programmes formerly centred on detecting potentially disabling abnormalities, and the new edition still reflects this important goal. However, it is increasingly recognised that disadvantage, educational failure and wasted lives are often due not to medical or biological disorders but adverse social and economic circumstances and the mental health problems that accompany them.

This Third Edition reflects professionals’ increasing enthusiasm for applying this knowledge in new approaches to intervention. The book has therefore been extensively revised, including much completely new material, to incorporate new research and evolving Government policy. It remains the essential child surveillance reference for GPs, general practice trainees, primary care nurses, health visitors, paediatricians and child mental health staff.
