When a child is struggling with psychological or behavioral issues, parents, teachers, and even professionals can be left in a state of confusion, unsure of what the best course of action should be. This book can help shed some light on the issue.
For parents, it serves as a handy reference for all you need to know about the field of child mental health. You’ll learn more about the different diagnoses and what they mean, as well as what experts are basing their decision on when they make a diagnosis. We’ll help you understand the different theories and approaches for each condition, so that you can become a better advocate for your child.
Teachers will get a handy, easy-to-read reference outlining all the different childhood conditions, so that they can become more knowledgeable about the issues affecting kids in their class. It’s information that will come in handy when working with difficult children or conducting parent-teacher conferences.
For professionals, this book can serve as a supplement to the DSM; an alternate perspective that includes some of the contrarian evidence that the American Psychiatric Association doesn’t include in their work. It will help you not only better understand the different disorders, but also gain a better grasp of how the diagnostic and treatment processes go wrong, so that you can avoid these pitfalls yourself.
