Designed to give counseling students a better understanding of children and adolescents who have been diagnosed with an emotional, behavioral, or mental disorder, this book provides a thorough discussion of the most-commonly diagnosed disorders of children and adolescents, and examines the biological, developmental, and environmental causes of these disorders. Disorders are approached from the perspective of the child/adolescent and examined in context, and each discussion includes practical guidance for assessment and treatment based on the most recent research in the field. To the expertise of the main author are added contributions by several counselor educators, psychologists, and clinicians who directly practice, teach, and focus on key topics addressed in the text.
