From the Back Cover
PTSD is more usually considered as an adult disorder: this volume concentrates on children and adolescents. The introductory chapters are followed by a chapter on assessment and several chapters on treatment. The issues of clinical management in some of the important ecological contexts such as family and school, and aetiological contexts such as refugee status and child abuse, are discussed in further detail. Then a variety of treatment approaches are clearly described.The book is aimed at teachers, practitioners and researchers in child psychiatry, clinical child psychology, educational psychology, social work, paediatrics, and occupational therapy.
