An introduction to anxiety in children and teenagers, emphasising the importance of understanding the life circumstances of young people. The book provides an up-to-date account of research on the developmental, familial and social context of child anxiety, along with nine vibrant and detailed case studies illustrating the ways in which young people can be helped to deal with serious and complex anxiety problems. In order to begin to understand complex anxiety within childrens life circumstances, Part One of the book provides the reader with a developmental framework for thinking about childrens anxiety. Part Two then presents nine in depth case studies, organised not by the type or nature of anxiety but by the context within which problematic anxiety can occur. Part Three acts a summary of the key points emerging from the clinical case studies. This book will be essential reading for those working and training in the specialist field of child mental health, as well as community and hospital professionals working with children and young people, including teachers, doctors, social workers and nurses.
