More than half of children either in foster care, or adopted from care in the developed world, have a measurable need for mental health services, while up to one quarter present with complex and severe trauma- and attachment-related psychological disorders. This book outlines how services can effectively detect, prevent, and treat mental health difficulties in this vulnerable population. Responding to increasing evidence that standard child and adolescent mental health services are poorly matched to the mental health service needs of children and young people who have been in foster care, this book provides expert guidance on the design of specialised services. The first part provides an overview of these children’s mental health needs, their use of mental health services and what is known about the effectiveness of mental health interventions provided to them. The second part presents some recent innovations in mental health service delivery, concentrating on advances in clinical and developmental assessment and treatment. The final part confronts the challenges for delivering effective mental health services in this area. This is the definitive international reference for the design of specialised mental health services for children and young people in care and those adopted from care. It is invaluable reading for health and social care professionals working with this population and academics with an interest in child and adolescent mental health from a range of disciplines, including social work, nursing and psychology.

For preschool children with emotional difficulties arising from difficulties in attachment, standard observations used in early years settings are not always helpful in identifying their problems and providing guidance on how they can be helped. Combining an accessible introduction to attachment and child development with a child observation tool for identifying behaviour, and the emotional needs underlying this behaviour, this book enables early years professionals to identify problems and provide appropriate support. 'Case study' boxes help to illustrate typical patterns of attachment, and all aspects of behaviour are covered including play, interaction with peers, neediness, and aggression. A range of handouts and activities is included, and guidance provided on how to work within professional boundaries. Written in clear, concise language, Observing Children with Attachment Difficulties in Preschool aims to equip the reader with the knowledge and skills needed to identify and support children's emotional and social difficulties. Suitable for use with children aged 2 – 5, this guide will be an invaluable resource for early years professionals, as well as for use by clinicians, teachers and learning support staff.

Ein geistlicher Klassiker: 999 aufruettelnde Maximen für ein Leben mit Gott. Das Erstlingswerk des heligen Josemaría Escrivá laeßt in seiner unbefangenen Sprache und seinen wegweisenden Impulsen niemanden kalt. Das Geheimnis dieses Buches geht dem Leser erst allmählich auf: es liegt darin, dass seine 999 Punkte auf den ersten Blick wie Kalendersprueche wirken moegen, auf den zweiten wie kluge Lebensregeln, auf den dritten wie geschliffene Aphorismen ..., bis er schließlich erkennt, dass jeder der 999 Punkte einem tiefen Brunnen gleicht, den kaum ein Senkblei unseres Nachdenkens genau auszuloten vermag. Der Weg hat mit großen Werken der Literatur und der Kunst gemeinsam, dass er jeglichen Fassungsvermoegen gemäß ist: dem schlichten Sinn wie dem komplizierten Hirn, dem weniger Gebildeten wie dem philosophischen Kopf. Josemaría Escrivá liebte nichts so sehr wie den Umgang mit dem menschgewordenen Christus; taeglich neu suchte er seine Nähe im Gebet und in der Messe; diese Naehe gab ihm Geborgenheit, sie machte ihn kuehn. Weit entfernt von bloß moralischen Appellen empfinden wir die Warmherzigkeit seiner Worte, greifen wir gern die Ermunterung auf, das Abenteuer unseres eigenen Lebens entschlossen zu wagen; wir spueren den Humor und entdecken das Augenzwinkern eines Menschen, der, weil er zutiefst versteht, aufrichtet und anspornt. Der Weg ist wahrhaft ein long seller der geistlichen Literatur, ein moderner Klassiker geworden. In mehr als vier Millionen Exemplaren und 44 Sprachen ist er über die Welt verbreitet.
