This updated edition of The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy reflects the many changes in the profession. It includes:
- additional chapters on neuroscience, work with ‘looked after children’ and with foster parents, working in schools
- enlarged chapters on research, attachment theory, work with parents, and developments in child and adolescent psychotherapy around the world
- chapters on areas of specialist interest including violence, sexual abuse and abusing, trauma, parent-infant psychotherapy, autism, victims of political violence, delinquency and gender dysphoria.
The Handbook remains accessible and jargon-free. It will be a valuable resource for all who work in allied professions where the emotional well-being of children is of concern – health, education, social services – as well as trainee psychotherapists and experienced practitioners.
