Full Description:   

This indispensable book provides hands-on tools and resources for addressing common emotional and behavioral problems in preschool and kindergarten-age children. The focus is on evidence-based interventions that are practical and effective, and that help prevent the development of more serious difficulties later on. The clinician is taken step by step through managing everything from toileting, eating, and sleep problems to externalizing disorders, internalizing disorders, and the effects of physical or sexual abuse. A variety of assessment methods are demonstrated and guidelines provided for planning and implementing a range of home- and school-based interventions. Conveniently designed in a large-size format for ease of photocopying, the volume contains over 30 reproducible parent handouts and other clinical tools.

"This book is a practical guide to the understanding and treatment of many common problems of early childhood. As a school counselor at the elementary level, I see this book as a valuable desk reference for school counselors and psychologists. Easy-to-access charts, tables, and forms at the end of each chapter add to the practical nature of this book and increase its usefulness to the busy professional."
-Janice Miller, MEd, elementary school counselor, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
