Children and Young People’s Mental Health

Early Intervention, Ongoing Support and Flexible Evidence Based Care

£35.00

Description

The mental health of children and young people is of increasing concern to us all. Formerly entitled ‘Child and Adolescent Mental Health Today’, this new edition has been substantially updated and extended to reflect contemporary issues and approaches, and to focus on early intervention, ongoing support and evidence-based care. It introduces the subject to the wide array of frontline workers in health, education, social services and youth justice who have regular contact with children and young people, and need some knowledge of the mental health issues that affect them, and the services available.

The team of editors, well-known for their contributions to the field, have commissioned a wide range of expert clinicians, professionals and researchers to update the original themes of the book and address new issues and approaches that have since emerged, including mental health in schools, the impact of social media, suicide prevention, gender and sexuality issues and the mental health needs of young offenders.

This accessible and wide-ranging introduction will be invaluable both to experienced practitioners and students who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of the difficulties that the young people and families with whom they work are experiencing, and current, evidence-based approaches to effectively meeting their needs.
