Help Your Child or Teen Get Back on Track offers specific self-help interventions and a wide-ranging, practical discussion of the types of professional help available for a child or adolescent with emotional and behavioral problems.

The book covers topics that would be discussed during a consultation with a child psychiatrist. The first section offers practical guidance and ideas to help parents understand their child's problems and learn to distinguish between normal disruption and that which warrants professional treatment. The second section of the book includes useful information for those parents who are considering, seeking, or already involved with professional help for their child.

Essential reading for parents who are worried about a child or adolescent with emotional and behavioral problems, this book is also a useful resource for social workers, psychologists, school counselors, pediatricians, and adult psychiatrists.

Review:

`This book provides ideas and advice on seeking professional help for parents who are worried about a child or adolescent with behavioural and emotional problems.' (Children & Young People Now)

It is also the kind of book I would recommend to the concerned but overwhelmed parent as it would help him make some informed decisions, (CAFCASS, FA Watson Research Assistant)

From an aggressive toddler to a self-harming teenager,the author gives clear information about what might be happening, strategies to address the problem and good case studies.

It answers questions such as "How do I know if my child's behaviour and emotions are serious problems?", and "How do I tell whether medication is helping?" . It explains normal development and why certain phases can be tricky for many children. It also has a comprehensive list of symptoms, and chapters on medication, psychotherapy and alternative therapies, test and different professionals.

Most postive is the author's obvious warmth, empathy and understanding, his acknowledgment of how hard parents find it when their children have difficulties'.

(Children and Young People Now)

This book is well informed and has been produced by an experienced professional who offers information on just about every emotional or behavioural issue you could think of, with suggested strategies on how to manage each topic. (Professional Social Work)

... provides a fine survey of parental techniques for handling both kids and teens who are aggressive. (The Midwest Book Review)
