Comprehensively treats two of the most common and correlated psychological disorders of childhood and adolescence, rather than treating them as distinct, which is often contrary to the common pattern of co-occurrence
Oriented more toward practice than many books on the market
Includes cultural considerations, which are not often covered systematically in other texts
Although generally considered adult disorders, anxiety and depression are widespread among children and adolescents, affecting academic performance, social development, and long-term outcomes. They are also difficult to treat and, especially when they occur in tandem, tend to fly under the diagnostic radar.
Anxiety and Depression in Children and Adolescents offers a developmental psychology perspective for understanding and treating these complex disorders as they manifest in young people. Adding the school environment to well-known developmental contexts such as biology, genetics, social structures, and family, this significant volume provides a rich foundation for study and practice by analyzing the progression of pathology and the critical role of emotion regulation in anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, and in combination. Accurate diagnostic techniques, appropriate intervention methods, and empirically sound prevention strategies are given accessible, clinically relevant coverage. Illustrative case examples and an appendix of forms and checklists help make the book especially useful.
Featured in the text:
Developmental psychopathology of anxiety, anxiety disorders, depression, and mood disorders.
