This indispensable clinical resource and text helps readers understand the latest developmental knowledge and apply it in their work with children and families. The book begins with a framework elucidating the transactions between individual development and the child's wider environment, and emphasizing the crucial role of attachment. Key developmental processes and tasks from infancy through middle childhood are then discussed in paired chapters that respectively address how children of different ages typically feel, think, and behave, and how to intervene effectively with those who are having difficulties.

This volume contributes in a very important and clear way to our understanding that a solid, thorough grasp of childhood development is crucial to appropriate clinical practice with children and their families. Davies embeds child development in a useful attachment paradigm as well as in a broad environmental context in which risk and protective factors are carefully and thoughtfully arranged. He traces the course of development in chapters that describe relevant issues and achievement in relation to age, and alternates these with chapters that illustrate the significance of that understanding to appropriate clinical practice. This helpful juxtaposition is transactionally enriching. Throughout, his clinical examples, brief and long, are compelling, intelligent, and continuously instructive (Jeree H.
