It's Nobody's Fault: New Hope and Help for Difficult Children and Their Parentsby Harold Koplewicz
Synopses & Reviews
People who wouldn't dream of blaming parents for a child's asthma or diabetes are often quick to blame bad parenting for a child's hyperactivity, depression, or school phobia.The parents, in turn, often blame their children, believing that they're lazy or rebellious.Even worse, the children with these psychological problems often blame themselves, convinced that they're just bad kids.In It's Nobody's Fault, esteemed child and adolescent psychiatrist Dr. Harold S. Kopelwicz at last puts an end tothis pointless--and erroneous--cycle of blame and helps parents get the help they need for their troubled children.
Written in an easy, anecdotal style and filled with fascinating stories of real children and their parents, It's Nobody's Fault is an indispensable guide for anyone who lives or works with children who need help.
Presents advice on the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of thirteen mental disorders that affect children and adolescents, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and eating disorders
Harold S. Kopelwicz, M.D., is vice chairman of the Department of Psychiatry and director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at New York University Medical Center, and professor of clinical psychiatry at the New York University School of Medicine.He has received many awards, including the 1995 Wilfred C.
