About-

Essential reading for everyone who cares for troubled children. Here is an indispensable book for parents, teachers, concerned relatives, clergy, guidance counselors, medical personnel - anyone who cares for children but does no have extensive psychological training. It covers such traumatic experiences as a death in the family, divorce, sickness, hospitalization, handicaps, aggression and defiance in home and school, and how, if necessary, to make a referral to a professional helper.

Based on the latest professional findings and the experiences of the psychologist authors, this popular handbook provides helpful case histories, approaches that work, essential references for each topic, and a useful bibliography for children and adolescents. It will be greatly appreciated by anyone who must respond to a young person in need.
