The book is divided into 12 chapters that include a discussion of models of childhood disorders; an overview of etiology, assessment, and treatment; a series of chapters on specific disorders; and, finally, a short summary and questions for the reader’s consideration. The volume is well written and provides an excellent introduction to the field. The chapters are very readable and include references to current work. Coverage is balanced with a discussion of current and, sometimes, past controversies. The chapters on anxiety disorders and depression are particularly well done. Pharmacological management is reviewed as relevant, although, as with the rest of the book, not in great detail.
