With an increasing emphasis on behavioral concerns (currently behavioral problems represent the number one reason for referral) in primary care medicine and child-focused psychology, practitioners in these and related disciplines need a handy resource - for their own reference and as an aid in effective communication when providing guidance to parents whose children are demonstrating problem behaviors. Practitioner's Guide to Behavioral Problems in Children is designed to be a quick reference for the practitioner regarding parenting, child development, and the conceptualization, identification, and treatment of behavioral concerns. The text is geared to be a practical, quick read that the practitioner can use for anticipatory guidance or first-tier interventions. The guide can also serve as a reference for parents, to use as a bibliotherapeutic aid, either to be read independently or used in conjunction with an intervention program provided by the practitioner.
