This book provides a practical guide to, and critical review of, community and individual professional interventions that could ease the lives of children with developmental disorders and mental health problems. The book is structured around the developmental stages and tasks in a child's life span, from conception to teenage years. It covers inherited disorders, intrauterine problems, neonatal and perinatal problems, early childhood attachment and physical disorders, disabilities at school, and problems associated with socialisation. It also discusses problems that affect children at all ages, such as learning disabilities and abuse, and various psychological and psychiatric disorders. A constant theme of the book is the role of parents, the family, and the community, in interventions. Written by a leading expert in child and adolescent clinical psychology and social work, the book bridges the gap between psychosocial interventions and medically-based treatments. Its design allows it to be used alongside Martin Herbert's Typical and Atypical Development: From Conception to Adolescence (BPS Blackwell, 2003).
