Treatment of Childhood Disorders is a comprehensive and scholarly review of the latest behavioral-systemic treatments for childhood and family disturbances. The editors and their colleagues, mostly academic psychologists, address the multivariant forces that shape and maintain childhood disorders. The book is portioned into 6 sections: the introduction and sections on behavioral disorders, emotional and social disorders, developmental disorders, children at risk, and problems of adolescence. Each section devotes a chapter to a specific disorder or topic. Many of the chapters contain commentary about onset, course, outcome, etiology, genetics, pharmacology, treatment, and developmental considerations.
