An inclusive guide to developing confidence and competence in daily practice

Attending to the psychological needs of children in distress is an enormously challenging and rewarding endeavour. Successful clinical child psychologists are both practitioners and scientists, integrating the application of existing theory, current knowledge, and evidence-based research into their practice.

In Child Psychology: Pathways to Good Practice, a highly experienced team of clinicians and researchers provides effective treatment practices and toolkits to assist in custom-tailoring therapies for young patients. Concise chapters address a broad range of conditions, from behavioural and emotional difficulties to issues related to neurodivergence and intellectual disabilities.

Drawing upon the most recent evidence and therapeutic models, this authoritative guide offers practical, hands-on discussion of all aspects of the child psychological practice, including assessment and formulation, legal and professional issues, service delivery, collaboration, digital mental health, trauma-informed practice, working in schools and social care, and more.
