About this book
Advances in Clinical Child Psychology is a serial publication designed to bring together original summaries of the most important new develop ments in the field of clinical psychology and its related disciplines. Each chapter is written by a key figure in an innovative area of research or by an individual who is particularly well qualified to comment on a topic of major contemporary importance. These chapters provide convenient, concise explorations of empirical and clinical advances in the fields of clinical child psychology, child psychiatry, and related disciplines. The chapter topics are chosen by the editors and are based on sug gestions by the advisory editors, unsolicited suggestions provided by colleagues, and all of our reading of the latest published empirical and theoretical works. They reflect our collective perception of the leading trends in the field of clinical child psychology. The contents of Volume 10 reflect multiple themes. Two chapters focus on different aspects of the child's family: the home and family environment associated with childhood psychopathology and the characteristics of parents whose parenting has become twisted into the abuse or neglect of their own children. The key topics of aggression and stealing are dealt with in two chapters, and five chapters deal with the variety of topics that were formerly under the umbrella concept of minimal brain dysfunction.
