Child Psychology And Psychiatry

Child Psychology and Psychiatry : Frameworks for Practice by David Skuse – Second Edition pdf 

A key skill that professionals working with vulnerable children need, is to understand how they develop competence. What role do neurobiology and genetic variability play in development? How do relationships with parents and siblings affect social and emotional adjustment? How important is the culture in which families live?

We address these questions in the first part of the book. Here, leading researchers and clinicians discuss the physical, social, cognitive and emotional development of the child within his or her familial and cultural context.

Practising clinicians wish to know how to promote children’s well-being. In our second section, we address how this can be done throughout the stages of a child’s development, including ways of fostering resilience in troubled adolescents. This theme is picked up in subsequent chapters, where authors discuss the clinical and research implications of attachment theory and their influence on children’s adjustment to bereavement, adoption and fostering.

There are lessons to be learned too. from recent developments in neurobiology and genetics, on individual differences to stress and maltreatment.

Child development does not always follow a smooth or predictable trajectory. Common disorders tend to appear at key developmental stages from infancy through to adolescence.
Feeding disorders usually have their onset in infancy and early childhood. Early intervention is needed to avert persistence into later life: our authors discuss why and how clinicians should intervene.

Literacy disorders are an issue for many children at school and can have far-reaching consequences for their educational progress. How to assess and manage this complex learning difficulty is illustrated by our authors.
