This unprecedented set examines the most prominent factors that harm or support healthy development in children outside the United States, from abuse and economics to social injustice and poor public policy. In International Perspectives on Children and Mental Health, expert contributors from around the world examine the forces affecting the psychological well-being of children in regions worldwide. They consider such factors as family conditions and economic status, including single parents, poverty, disease, war, child abuse, substance abuse in the home, and a loss of community stability. And they look at political, religious, national, and global matters, including racism and class inequality. Since education is key to children's success, the essays consider these factors largely in the context of how they affect educational readiness and academic adjustment. Volume 1 of the set considers development and context, while volume 2 focuses on prevention and treatment. Specific examples enable readers to better understand the often-horrific challenges to child development and mental health across nations. But the work is not limited to exploring problems. It also looks at various programs and actions that mitigate risks, helping children to be mentally healthy despite the odds. * Vignettes from researchers who have studied children in the most deplorable conditions * Contributions from top scholars and researchers in the field

"International Perspectives on Children and Mental Health has much to offer. Its prominent themes are consistent with much of the existing scholarship, thus reinforcing as well as extending the relevance of this scholarship to multinational and multicultural contexts. Many chapters describe assessment methods and intervention efforts that may be relevant in other countries. Readers also will acquire a further understanding and appreciation of the impact that cultural contexts exert on children's mental health." - PsycCRITIQUES
