This handbook style volume is a complete guide to the delivery of services to children and adolescents with mental health needs. It has been developed and organized with care toward being a highly useful, up to date and quickly consulted reference. Sections give full coverage to such common and often frustrating topics as self harm, learning disabilities, emergency occasions, referral management, autism-spectrum disorders, eating disorders, and pediatric liaisons. Among the 33 chapters addressing distinct subject areas, most address matters of direct mental health service to children and families, others discuss methods or standards of professional practice and also agency or clinic design and management. Tables, boxes, and figures illustrate throughout, and are arranged in a separate table of contents for better accessibility. Distributed by Publishers Storage and Shipping Company, Fitchburg, MA.
