Review Quotes
"Child and Adolescent Psychopathology: Theoretical and Clinical Implicationsis a publication that indeed covers a lot of ground in child psychopathology, complete with research findings and clinical theoretical models. The chapters' authors follow a concise, almost universal style of writing, which allows for easy reading and would satisfy the educational needs of advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and mental health professionals. Essau captures the major psychological and psychiatric disorders of childhood in a well-planned book that is able to complement more detailed publications of childhood psychopathology...in courses of developmental psychopathology for clinical and counseling psychology students. Similarly, this book, when paired with case studies of childhood disorders, can become a solid foundation for an applied course of clinical child psychology and other graduate mental health courses." -Marios Constantinou, Natalie Pilpenko, Maria Karekla, in PsyCritiques, Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books
