In this collection of 17 chapters aimed at mental health professionals and graduate students, Luby (child psychiatry, Washington U. School of Medicine in St. Louis) brings together discussions of early-onset mental disorders in children from ages three to six. Introductory chapters review literature on the development of self-concept, emotions and socialization, and cognition, followed by examinations of disorders affecting eating, sleeping, anxiety, attachment, and mood, in addition to posttraumatic stress disorder, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, and autism. Treatment, including play therapies and psychopharmacology, is outlined, as well as neuropsychological assessment. Authors work in the fields of psychiatry, human development and family studies, psychology, developmental epidemiology, education, child development, and pediatrics at universities in the US.
