Summary

A comprehensive look at typical developmental patterns in children age 3-16, Clinical and Educational Psychology explores how challenges that children face can influence their developmental path. Drawing on contemporary research on the developing brain, the text examines the clinical and educational problems that children who face multiple stressors can be vulnerable to. Clinical and Educational Psychology equips readers to develop case formulations and interventions holistically, by harnessing the insights of both clinical and educational child psychology.
