Contemporary Approaches to Infant and Child Mental Health


Product Description

Published Australia, 2012
Louise Newman's book, edited with Sarah Mares from the Menzies School of Health Research in Darwin, brings together specialist authors who integrate evidence from research with their own clinical practice. Aimed at children aged 0-12 years and their families, a wide range of common and not so common presentations is covered. The book provides a broad developmental, relational and psycho-social corrective to dominant biological models and approaches. It draws on developments in developmental psychology, neurobiology and social science that have led to a new understanding of the importance of the early years.
