About this title
As the United States approaches the millennium, how will it address the mental health needs of its youth? The contributors of this volume grapple with this issue and provide fodder for discussions on how to insure and improve the future health care of our children. Beginning with an overview of children′s health care from colonial times to the present, the leaders in this field address such issues asf the federal governments′ involvement in health care services for low income families; the two major models for service delivery, the effectiveness of outpatient mental health services; the most effective forms of intervention for changing specific dysfunctional behaviours; the financial issues of health care delivery, including ways to increase cost effectiveness; and the issues of psychopharmacology versus talk therapies.
