Understanding Abnormal Child Psychology
Throughout this book, special attention is given to issues of diversity, inclusion, and understanding. The text also examines the relationships between children and their fathers as well as with other primary figures within families (i.e., siblings, step-parents, care-taking grandparents, foster parents, etc.).
Abnormal Child Psychology is unique in providing for students a chapter on applying the material they have learned and helping children and families who experience problems.
