This book presents effective and efficient interventions for the children who are just beginning school through the years of early puberty. The expert contributors offer frontline clinicians the knowledge and tools they need for assessing and treating the problems that are unique to this age group. Encouraging both creativity and flexibility, this volume presents specific recommendations for the treatment of developmental issues and problems such as hyperactivity, depression, obsession, compulsions, phobias, and trauma-related problems.
Written with the same sensitivity and insight as Treating Preschool Children and Treating Adolescents, this volume is an indispensable guide for meeting the challenge of treating children between the ages of six and twelve.
