M. Elena Garralda and Jean-Philippe Raynaud aim to increase awareness of child and adolescent mental health within an international framework that gives special consideration to problems arising in different contexts around the world and through expert views supported by empirical evidence and considering clinical implications. Chapters address the effects on child mental health of issues including secular changes in family composition in both Western and Eastern countries, rapid industrialization, poverty, deprivation, adoption, refugee status, and aboriginal life. The book also considers emerging issues, such as cyber addiction, PTSD, ADHD across different cultures, and the autism 'epidemic.'
