Treatments That Work with Children: Empirically Supported Strategies for Managing Childhood Problems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Parents frequently consult both psychologists and pediatricians about a variety of childhood problems. But today there are so many theories about which therapies work best that it is hard to make informed choices. In this book, psychologists Edward R. Christophersen and Susan L. Mortweet — both seasoned clinicians — help readers assess available treatments that have documented records of success. Eight comprehensive, engaging chapters cover the common problems of disruptive behavior, anxiety, sleep disorders, nocturnal enuresis, encopresis, habit disorders (such as tics and thumbsucking), the treatment of pain, and helping children adhere to medical regimens. The book describes diagnosis and treatment, with an emphasis on practicality. Summaries and handouts are useful for training purposes as well as for daily office use. This book will also be enormously useful to pediatricians who want the latest information on behavioral treatments that really work.

Book News Annotation:

Christophersen and Mortweet both teach pediatrics (U. of Missouri-Kansas City) and practice clinical psychiatry (Children's Mercy Hospital) and so combine the two professions parents frequently consult for help with childhood problems ranging from sleep disorders to anxiety. In the midst of a plethora of theories about what therapies work best, they assess available treatments that have documented records of success, and in many cases point to treatment manuals that are available to help clinicians implement them. Clinicians are their intended readers.
