Social inequality and social disadvantage provide an all toofertile soil that sustains the majority of the serious mentalhealth problems suffered by children in our society.
The complexity of the issues clinicians routinely encounter inworking with children with mental health problems is widelyacknowledged. However, few books concern themselves with how suchdifficult populations can be effectively approached and thestrategies that are likely to deliver effective treatment to them.This book, based on a highly successful seminar for grant-givingchildren's charities held at the Anna Freud Centre and sponsored byJohn Lyon's Charity, provides pragmatic solutions to this majortherapeutic challenge of our age. The chapters bridge statutory andvoluntary initiatives and are held firmly together by thecommitment to evidence-based, systematically offered, programmaticand innovative approaches that can help those who, although hard toreach, are in greatest need of our efforts: the socially excludedchildren and families in our society. As such, this book will beinvaluable to psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors andfamily therapists.
