There has been a major shift in the way we conceptualize and provide services to children and adolescents with mental health needs. We are moving away from the traditional disorder-oriented model of treatment to a child-centered, family-focused service delivery system that mandates mental health services in the context of the child's family and social ecology. This new system of care has spawned many variations of the model, including wraparound services, multisystemic treatment (MST), futures planning, and person-centred planning. As systems of care are different across countries and cultures, it is imperative that we share our knowledge and make explicit the lessons we have learned in our attempts to provide services to children and adolescents which focus on improving their quality of life rather than merely treating their psychiatric disorders and psychological problems. There is an urgent need to evaluate the various treatments being offered to children and adolescents with mental health needs. Empirical date on outcomes will determine the funding and delivery of services. As such, the latest research on treatment outcomes needs to be disseminated so that new and validated treatment methods can be implemented rapidly.

Normal Child and Adolescent Development

Normal Child and Adolescent Development is an exceptional learning tool for beginning mental health professionals engaged in training programs to prepare for work with children, adolescents, and adults with mental and behavioral problems. Throughout the book, illustrative examples of normal and abnormal development are presented to demonstrate the usefulness of normal development concepts in understanding abnormal development. Intended as an introduction to child and adolescent mental development, this book describes each major stage of the development process, integrating each major aspect of development with the leading developmental theories. Each chapter follows the same basic outline to help the reader understand the continuous nature of the child's mental development through succeeding developmental phases. This schematic organization emphasizes that children's mental development is continuous as well as discontinuous: their representational world provides the continuous "landscape" from which they progressively perceive the social world using their increasingly more complex perceptual and cognitive capabilities; discontinuous in the sense that children's maturational advances, coupled with new life events, will produce relatively unexpected developmental changes in them. The text includes several important concepts of normal mental development. A thorough understanding of the id, ego, superego and the self; the unconscious mental domain; implicit versus explicit memories; the development of the internal distress signal; mechanisms of defense; transference reactions; and mental organizing principles is essential for any practitioner who will ultimately be involved in evaluatory and treatment work with mentally disturbed children, adolescents, and adults.

Understanding Looked After Children is an accessible guide to understanding the mental health needs of children in foster care and the role of foster carers and support networks in helping these children. The authors provide foster carers with an insight into the psychological issues experienced by children in the care system, and the impact of these issues on the foster family. Chapters cover cultural, social and legal structures associated with foster care and both the relevant child psychology theory and examples drawn from real-life situations. The authors give advice on how to address common psychological issues in collaboration with multi-agency professionals, as well as how to access to statutory services. They also explain the possible impact of assessments on foster children and the causes and management of foster carers' own feelings of frustration, anger or disappointment with social and mental health services or the placement itself. Chapters are complemented by case studies, and the book includes a helpful glossary to common terminology. Understanding Looked After Children is essential reading for registered foster carers and those considering fostering, as well as adoptive parents, and a useful reference for trainee and experienced practitioners in the care system, including social workers, psychologists, counsellors, teachers and others looking after vulnerable children.

Adolescence is a period of rapid growth, maturing individuality, vulnerabilities and fortitude. Fortunately, most youths go through this period of life in a healthy way, but some do not. Adolescent Mental Health: Prevention and Intervention is a concise and accessible overview of our current knowledge on effective treatment and prevention programs for youths who have developed, or are at risk of developing, mental health problems. Ogden and Hagen’s introduction to "what works" in the promotion of adolescent mental health addresses some of the most common mental health problems among young people, and how these problems might be prevented or ameliorated through professional and systematic efforts. The volume illustrates contemporary and empirically supported interventions and prevention efforts through a series of case studies, and covers some of the most prevalent mental health conditions affecting today’s youth; externalizing, internalizing and drug use problems. Within an ecological and transactional framework, the book discusses how psychopathologies may develop and the risks and protective factors associated with these. The problem-oriented perspective on risk and mental health problems is combined with a focus on social competence and other protective factors. Adolescent Mental Health: Prevention and Intervention will be essential reading for students and practitioners in the fields of child welfare and mental health services, and any professionals working with adolescents at risk of developing mental health problems.

An invaluable resource for parents, extended family, teachers, social workers, and anyone concerned about a young person’s emotional well-being. Topics include: when to worry communicating with your child – practical techniques bipolar disorder attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) autism trauma and grief bullying and abuse sleep and well-being help from your doctor red flags and managing emergencies Dr Sarah Vohra says, ‘Gut instinct is the most undervalued tool we own. Some parental anxiety is natural, but if you think something’s wrong, trust your instinct. Don’t ignore it or try to justify worrying behaviour as normal ups and downs. Early intervention is key – so talk to your child and seek professional help sooner rather than later.’

Case Studies in Child and Adolescent Psychopathology

Second Edition

Author: DeDe Wohlfarth,Robin K. Morgan

Publisher: Waveland Press

ISBN: 1478635266

Category: Psychology

Page: 305

View: 1036

The second edition of Case Studies in Child and Adolescent Psychopathology expands on the case study approach utilized in the first edition, providing engaging narratives of clients with rich backgrounds and complex family situations. Because the answers to important real-world questions are often nuanced, contextual, and tentative—unlike the idealistic scenarios presented in most textbooks—these case studies contain ethical lapses, clinical mistakes, confusing diagnostic presentations, unevenly applied approaches, and sometimes unhappy endings. These real-life portrayals of clients help students learn the skills they will need to be successful in the mental health field. Critical thinking questions designed to develop objective analysis and evaluation skills are embedded throughout the cases, which can be used in individual, group, or online formats. This problem-based learning approach challenges readers to create accurate case conceptualizations and evidence-based treatment plans. The cases utilize the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The current research applied in the case studies serves to deepen the understanding of the etiology and treatment of these disorders. The latest edition emphasizes culture, race, and ethnicity in psychotherapy, featuring both children and mental health providers who represent a wide variety of cultural backgrounds.
