Editorial Reviews

Review

"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 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 2012-03-08)

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

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

From the Back Cover

Despite the wealth of research on infancy, this comprehensive handbook is the first to offer a broad interdisciplinary analysis of the developmental, clinical, and social aspects of infant mental health. With chapters written by scholars and clinicians from a variety of perspectives, the work is grounded in a relational view of infancy and applies the fruits of contemporary research in developmental psychology to the problems encountered in clinical practice. Extensive in its scope, this volume thoroughly covers models of development, risk conditions and protective factors, and social policy considerations, as well as assessment, evaluation, and diagnosis for all children from birth to three years of age. The broad initial chapters critically evaluate different models of development and developmental psychopathology, and the contexts of infant mental health, particularly the family. Subsequent chapters examine factors that may influence infant development, including adolescent motherhood, multiple family relationships, the consequences of poverty, and the effects of premature birth, parental mental illness, and maternal substance abuse. Issues of assessment, evaluation, and diagnosis are covered in detail, and separate chapters then focus on specific disorders - from traditional topics such as autism and failure to thrive to contemporary descriptions of regulatory and attachment disorders. An array of interventions - from practitioner-based models of psychotherapy to programmatic prevention and early intervention efforts - are presented. The final chapters on day care and custody illuminate social policy questions that can profoundly affect infant mental health. This book isunparalleled as a complete resource for a wide variety of professionals. Relevant to clinicians, investigators, and those concerned with social policy, it is an indispensable reference for psychiatrists psychologists social workers, pediatricians, nurses, special educators, policy makers, and early intervention specialists. It also serves as an excellent text for students in these disciplines.

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.
