This volume provides a comprehensive clinical-developmental framework for understanding and treating behavior problems in early childhood. Susan B. Campbell offers a highly readable account of the developmental tasks and transitions that young children face in cognitive, social, and family domains, and examines why and what happens when development goes awry. Particular attention is given to the critical question of how certain children manage to successfully overcome difficult transitions, while others face the risk of serious, ongoing problems. Empirically supported prevention and treatment approaches are reviewed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The second edition of this benchmark volume is a major accomplishment. Campbell's comprehensive conceptual and theoretical framework will help readers gain a better understanding of what is a pressing national problem--the identification, prevention, and treatment of young children's social, emotional, and behavioral problems. Notable features of the second edition include expanded coverage of prevention and treatment, as well as updated consideration of social policy issues. Like its predecessor, the volume does a wonderful job of bringing in real-life examples to anchor the discussion of complex issues, and it is written in a very accessible and clear style. Of particular value is the richly informative chapter on family factors in the development of problem behavior. An important contribution for clinical psychologists, the book will also be useful to professionals in social work, early childhood education, and related fields."--Robert C. Pianta, PhD, Curry Programs in Clinical and School Psychology, University of Virginia

"Much has happened in this past decade to advance our understanding of child behavior problems and how they may be prevented or treated. Susan Campbell is on top of these advances, in part because she has spearheaded many of them. She has performed a wonderful service to all of us interested in the well-being of children by updating this book. This is an essential resource for anyone working with children--from child clinicians to preschool and elementary school teachers--as well as serious students of human development. Campbell provides accurate and balanced coverage of what is known about early development; helps us understand why young children have behavior problems; and shares illustrative findings from her own longitudinal studies. Impressively, the volume provides a review that will be highly informative to psychology researchers and graduate students while remaining accessible to undergraduates and readers in other fields."--John Coie, PhD, Department of Psychology: Social and Health Sciences (Emeritus), Duke University
