Review

"???[A]n accessible introduction to child mental health [that] raises key issues in the field??? This is an essential handbook for students, trainers and professionals involved with children who have mental health problems. It will also be of interest to parents who wish to know more about the subject." -- childRIGHT "childRIGHT"

Review

This helpful handbook is an easy to use guide on general issues around child and adolescent mental health, and is a must-read for frontline professionals. Covering early years to adolescence, the authors set out ways in which children and young people can be supported by all practitioners in primary care. (Children and Young People Now)

The updated text incorporates recent evidence-base and guidelines for interventions on common behavioural, emotional and developmental problems in childhood and young life, with extended information on topics such as self-harm and cultural diversity. The structure, format and friendly writing style convey the key messages, and these are integrated with case material within frontline professionals' and agencies' remits. In that respect, this textbook will be of interest and value to a range of practitioners, as well as students and parents or carers, and will serve as foundation to child mental health training programmes. Its implications go beyond any particular country or system of children's services provision. (from the foreword by Panos Vostanis)

Praise for the first edition:

`Presenting the fundamentals of child psychiatry in an enjoyable and easily read format, this book is an introduction to child mental health. It begins by looking at child development and attachment theory, moves on to the nature and prevalence of child mental health problems, and also considers treatment and management approaches. Particular attention is paid to at risk groups including young offenders, children excluded from school and homeless children.'

(Childright)

`I would recommend this book as a useful addition to primary care libraries...' (Psychiatric Bulletin)

`…[A]n accessible introduction to child mental health [that] raises key issues in the field… This is an essential handbook for students, trainers and professionals involved with children who have mental health problems. It will also be of interest to parents who wish to know more about the subject.' (childRIGHT)

`The book is full of common sense and does not promise unrealistic outcomes.' (Community Care)

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for introducing the topics of mental ill health to a wide audience of professionals and students in the related fields of health and social care. It is very well presented, and each area is broken down well. However, my only concern is that it isn't as "multidisciplinary" as it makes out, and that it isn't as critical as it could be. It follows the medical model too much, and thus pathologising mental distress.
