Martin Herbert′s latest book provides an interesting and informative account of the child′s journey from the womb to the world outside, through childhood and into adolescence. It is based on the belief that it is vital for those training to work with children who have problems to understand what is typical or atypical in children′s development. Herbert deliberately links developmental and clinical psychology approaches in order to help readers connect their theoretical understanding of the physical and psychological problems of childhood with the practicalities of assessment, rehabilitation and treatment.

′Although many have attempted to write a developmentally based book on child and adolescent behavior problems, few have achieved this lofty and elusive goal. Professor Herbert does so, however. He nicely bridges the gap or, some would say, chasm between developmental psychology, educational psychology, and clinical child and adolescent psychology.′ Thomas H. Ollendick, PhD, University Distinguished Professor, Virginia Tech

Review:

′Although many have attempted to write a developmentally based book on child and adolescent behavior problems, few have achieved this lofty and elusive goal. Professor Herbert does so, however. He nicely bridges the gap or, some would say, chasm between developmental psychology, educational psychology, and clinical child and adolescent psychology. Throughout this volume, he weaves a rich tapestry of typical (i.e., normal) development and development gone awry. Developmental psychopathology comes alive. His approach is theoretically sophisticated, clinically sensitive, and both engaging and timely. It is, in short, a volume whose time has come.′ Thomas H. Ollendick, PhD, University Distinguished Professor, Virginia Tech

Professor Herbert summarizes very complicated material in a succinct, authoritative and accessible manner. He successfully integrates findings from biology, genetics, developmental and clinical psychology and places them within an appropriate cross–cultural context. This forms the basis for evidence based practice in the 21st century and is an invaluable aide–mémoire to all working with children.′ William Yule, PhD, Professor of Applied Child Psychology, University of London Institute of Psychiatry

"Martin Herbert provides comprehensive and interesting coverage of a core area of psychology – along with definition and discussion of the less core, more clinical aspects of the subject ... This is an intriguing combination of student textbook and descriptive handbook that will interest undergraduate and postgraduate alike, both in psychology and the more clinical areas of study. I′m sure students will find it a useful resource" Dr Rowan Myron, University of Hull, The Psychologist, August 2003, Vol 16, No.8

"Martin Herbert succeeds in this volume, as he has in many earlier volumes, in presenting complex material and issues in an understandable and authoritative manner. This is no mean feat, and is achieved with an elegant and engaging style ... Throughout the book Herbert skilfully succeeds in addressing issues of clinical and educational psychology and interweaving these with developmental, social and cognitive psychology ... Students and their teachers from a range of programmes will find this book invaluable as a resource: nurse, teacher, psychologist, and other medical professionals will benefit from possessing the book as a source book which provides infomation on a wide range of developmental problems. At a time when there is an increasing interest in, and concern with, the development of children and young people and the ways in which the environment in its widest sense can influence development, this book transcends the traditional distinction between nature and nurture and provides a clinically sensitive and academically authoritative account of normal and atypical development. As stated by Thomas Ollendick on the back cover, ′it is a volume whose time has come′." Ingrid Lunt, Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, Vol. 45, No. 6, September 2004

From the Back Cover:

This text provides an interesting and informative account of the child′s journey from the womb to the world outside, through childhood and into adolescence. It is based on the belief that it is vital for those training to work with children who have problems to understand what is typical or atypical in children′s development. The first half of the book, discussing normal patterns of growth and development, is cross–referenced to equivalent chapters in the second half, which discuss the atypical route. These connections serve to emphasize the continuities between, and similarities of, children with typical and atypical conditions. Among the difficulties covered are: Pervasive developmental disorders Genetic disorders Physical impairments Learning difficulties Brain damage Emotional and behavioural disorders Personality disorders. Physical and mental illnesses The text also deliberately links developmental and clinical psychology approaches in order to help readers connect their theoretical understanding of the physical and psychological problems of childhood with the practicalities of assessment, rehabilitation and treatment.
