About the Author

Carolyn S. Schroeder, PhD, is Adjunct Professor in the Clinical Child Psychology Program at the University of Kansas. She previously held appointments in the Departments of Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Throughout her career, she has trained graduate students, interns, and postdoctoral fellows from multiple health care disciplines in the assessment and treatment of children and their families. She is widely recognized for the establishment of a model for psychologists' participation in primary care pediatrics. Dr. Schroeder's professional contributions have been recognized with awards from the Society of Clinical Psychology, the Society of Clinical Child Psychology, the Society of Pediatric Psychology, and the Division of Family Psychology of the American Psychological Association, among other honors. In 2013, the Society of Pediatric Psychology established an annual award for clinical practice in her name. Julianne M. Smith-Boydston, PhD, is Director of the Child and Family Services Clinic at the University of Kansas, where she has supervised teams of graduate students since 2004. For over 15 years, she worked at the Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center in Lawrence, Kansas, where she coordinated staff development, oversaw all assessments for child and family services, and supervised multidisciplinary community-based teams, psychology practicum students and interns, and therapists in a therapeutic classroom. Dr. Smith-Boydston also held an appointment in the Department of Psychology at Washburn University, where she taught graduate and undergraduate courses. Her publications reflect her interest in evidence-based practices and their dissemination into community-based programs.


"A remarkable and comprehensive update of a classic book. This is an essential text for all child mental health professionals in training, as well as practicing clinicians who want to keep up to date with evidence-based assessment and treatment of all the key psychological and behavioral problems that are likely to emerge in practice with children. Especially useful are the downloadable assessment instruments and clinical forms, the measure descriptions (in an appendix), and the listings of clinician and parent resources at the end of each chapter. The many case examples help to make the material understandable and practical. This book is a gem!"--Annette M. La Greca, PhD, ABPP, Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Pediatrics, University of Miami

"The prior editions have been my go-to references for teaching and clinical practice for the past two decades, and the third edition will have a prominent place on my shelf. This book is rich with useful, step-by-step guidance for clinical practice. It is organized around common presenting problems (updated for DSM-5), and follows a consistent framework of assessment and intervention, making it an excellent tool for teaching developing clinicians. Clinical conceptualizations are grounded in a robust theoretical framework, and therapeutic approaches are informed by current evidence-based practice. I highly recommend this book for any clinician interested in working with children and adolescents, and consider it essential for practice with pediatric populations in an integrated multidisciplinary setting."--Parinda Khatri, PhD, Chief Clinical Officer, Cherokee Health Systems, Knoxville, Tennessee

"I found the second edition of this book to be very effective as a basic text for a statewide training program for supervisors of child protective workers. The third edition also would be a good fit for MSW practice courses in the child welfare, clinical practice, mental health, health care, and/or school social work specializations, or for advanced practice courses in BSW programs. The text is very well grounded in research-based practice, reads well, and is highly congruent with the everyday needs of the practitioner. I am particularly impressed with the authors' ability to connect research evidence to specific practice guidelines and directives."--Charles D. Cowger, PhD, Professor Emeritus, University of Missouri School of Social Work and University of Illinois School of Social Work

"This masterful book combines practical diagnostic and therapeutic guidance with validated tools and rating scales. It provides a basis for coordinated, collaborative care among mental health professionals, primary care providers, and families. I like the pragmatic sequence from common developmental problems to more severe psychological conditions, and the coverage of contemporary issues of sexuality, social determinants of health, toxic childhood experiences, and nontraditional family models. I also appreciate the emphasis on prevention, resilience, and early intervention. This book will be indispensable in my clinical practice as a pediatrician."--Jennifer Lail, MD, FAAP, James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
