Thus, the chapters in Section One provide a background for conceptualizing both normal and abnormal development in children and their families. This Handbook can be used as a primary text for courses in child tment as well as in the clinical child practicum portions of training received by advanced graduate students.

Flessner and Piacentini's volume is a 'must have' for clinicians of all disciplines, as each chapter not only lays out the evidence-based treatments for a particular condition or problem, but also shows how to deliver the treatment in question. There's no book like it in child and adolescent mental health; it will be especially useful for graduate and professional training courses.

These require behavioral management to avoid long-term deleterious sleep habits. Childhood is generally the golden age of sleep, with brief latency, high efficiency, and easy awakening.

"Once again, Dr. Schaefer has produced an excellent, practical resource geared to practitioners working with children and families. Sleep disorders are frequently overlooked and undertreated in infants and children, yeat are some of their most prevalent problems. One in three families of preschoolers and early school-age children reports significant sleep disturbances in their youngsters. These disorders cause tremendous stress to families—particularly those with two working parents—who go through nightly battles with children who have trouble going to sleep, awaken repeatedly, have nightmares, or regularly enter parental beds. Clinical Handbook of Sleep Disorders in Children describes and defines problems and solutions in this emerging field. The contributors to this volume also address more complex difficulties such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy, teeth grinding, bed-wetting, night terrors, and sleepwalking, and share the most recent research findings regarding sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The handbook's treatment approach is to work directly with parents to determine environmental influences, such as their own behaviors that reinforce bad sleeping habits; to provide parental therapy as needed; and to help parents develop a behavioral program to teach their own children to achieve more effective sleep behaviors. This is a particularly attractive approach, as it empowers parents with solutions to the problems that previously overwhelmed them, and makes them feel more effective in their role as parents. The book is highly recommended for any clinician who works with children."—Lynnette Johnson, Ph. D.
