Description

Never before have the two most empirical approaches to treating children - the behavioral and pharmacological methods - been paired together and handled in tandem. With this authoritative new book it's now possible to determine the extent of progress made to date, the needs for the future, and the specific points at which the two strategies intersect and are complementary to one another. The book is set up to ensure maximum progress in understanding, diagnosing, assessing, and treating eight of today's most common childhood disorders: anxiety, depression, mental retardation, autism, psychophysiological disorders, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, substance abuse, and anorexia and bulimia.
