Regulatory Disorders in Infants: Assessment, Diagnosis, and Treatment

Springer
Free sample

This innovative book discusses current findings on regulatory disorders in infants and offers practical guidelines for diagnosis and intervention. Focusing on core infant and toddler concerns including crying, sleeping, feeding, clinginess, and aggression, it presents a developmental continuum from normal to disturbed behavior regulation and examines science-based strategies for halting this trajectory. Case examples and widely used tools illustrate diverse approaches to assessment and diagnosis, emphasizing nuances of parent-infant interactions and parents‘ reactions that may fail to answer, or may even exacerbate, the child’s distress. And chapters outline counseling and therapy options for infants and parents, so that persistent problems do not become entrenched in children’s future behavior or lead to long-term family dysfunction.

Among the topics covered:
  • Approaches to diagnosing regulatory disorders in infants.
  • Feeding disorders in infants and young children.
  • Developmentally appropriate vs. persistent defiant and aggressive behavior.
  • Treatment approaches for regulatory disorders.
  • Video and video feedback in counseling and therapy.

Regulatory Disorders in Infants is an essential resource for clinicians and practitioners as well as researchers and graduate students in clinical child and school psychology, pediatrics, social work, psychiatry, and family studies.

Clinicians Acclaim for "Gentling"
"In this world where children are often disenfranchised in trauma care--and all toooften treated with the same techniques as adults--Krill makes a compelling case for howto adapt proven post-trauma treatment to the world of a child."
--Michele Rosenthal, HealMyPTSD.com
"Congratulations to Krill when he says that 'being gentle' cannot be over-emphasizedin work with the abused."
--Andrew D. Gibson, PhDAuthor of "Got an Angry Kid? Parenting Spike, A Seriously Difficult Child"
"William Krill's book is greatly needed. PTSD is the most common aftermath of childabuse and often domestic abuse as well. There is a critical scarcity of mental-health professionalswho know how to recognize child abuse, let alone treat it."
--Fr. Heyward B. Ewart, III, Ph.D., St. James the Elder Theological Seminary, author of "AM I BAD? Recovering From Abuse"w
