Summary
"Mental health interventions for children and adolescents often flow from adult clinical models that emphasize change at the individual level. Yet, to accomplish long-lasting change for children and adolescents, such services need also to consider developmental norms, the developmental status of the child or adolescent, and the fact that mental health issues for this population are embedded in family, peer, and sibling relationships. In this book, Thomas J. Dishion and Elizabeth A. Stormshak describe their family-centered, ecological approach, which may be used as an intensive intervention or as a periodic preventive check up. To have the greatest public health impact, the approach can also be delivered in community settings such as schools. The authors demonstrate how they examine psychopathology in children and adolescents in the context of the ecology (families, peer groups, communities, and schools) in which they live. They present their empirically derived approach and illustrate how developmentally and culturally relevant interventions are shaped. Given individual variation in vulnerability to environmental stress, periodic assessments and interventions are used to prevent, treat, or reduce harm associated with problem behavior and emotional distress. This promising approach places children in context and will be of interest to any therapist who wishes to understand the broad dynamics that influence their lives"--Jacket.
