Editorial Reviews


"A well-referenced and remarkably accessible volume. A true gem for all clinicians and students whose work touches on early childhood and who want their practices to be guided by best evidence."--Peter Fonagy, PhD, FBA, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis and Chair, Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London, UK

"Once again, Zeanah has produced a first-rate handbook. Leaders in the field contribute their knowledge and expertise in easy-to-read, scholarly presentations. Keeping pace with the burgeoning field of infant mental health, this handbook is a 'must read' for all researchers and clinicians who wish to stay current."--Thomas F. Anders, MD, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Emeritus), M.I.N.D. Institute, University of California, Davis

"The definitive handbook on infant mental health. This work has become indispensable worldwide for practitioners and trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, pediatrics, and social work. The Handbook presents the best available knowledge and works toward consensus on key issues related to theory, research, assessment, psychopathology, and intervention."--Antoine Guedeney, MD, Head, Department of Child Psychiatry, Bichat-Claude Bernard Hospital, Paris, France

"A pious Christian or Muslim needs and deserves a fine version of the Bible or Koran. A sea captain traversing the ocean should have a competent map. And every educated person who wants to assess, treat, or love a difficult baby must own a copy of this book. If you can't find helpful information summarized here, relevant to any important or special problem pertinent to children ages 0–3, then the data do not yet exist."--American Journal of Psychiatry
(American Journal of Psychiatry 2012-03-08)

"A comprehensive reference that is a valuable addition to a developmentally oriented clinician who interacts with young children and families."--Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics
(Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics 2012-03-08)

"An extraordinary example of collaborative work among mental health professionals from a variety of fields."--Journal of Pediatric Psychology
(Journal of Pediatric Psychology 2012-03-08)

"A marvelous reference."--Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
(Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic 2012-03-08)

As in Infant Mental Health therapist I use this book weekly. It is my primary reference source for statistics when I am completing trainings or trying to orient new staff to the field. All of the information is well presented, easy to find and factually supported.

This updated Handbook is a compendium of articles about issues related to infant development. That allows the reader to pick and choose chapters of particular interest. I like the focus on families, diversity, and social/emotional development. There is also some biological basis too, but not heavily so. A good basic primer for anyone in the mental health field who works with young children.

I'm impressed by the span of knowledge areas covered by this book. Each chapter covers a different caveat of Infant/Toddler Mental Health. I highly recommend the book.
