About the Author

Douglas Davies, MSW, PhD, School of Social Work, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA


"Beautifully written, engaging, and rich with real-world case examples, this book traces development from infancy through preadolescence and illustrates how to apply developmental principles in complex clinical situations. I enthusiastically recommend it as a text for a comprehensive course in child development. The book is well organized for teaching and can be geared to beginning or higher-level students. The updated third edition integrates new research findings in areas such as neuroscience, trauma, foster care, and social policy. Davies writes with wisdom, respect, and warmth for children and the challenges they face. This book will enrich the clinical skills of all clinicians who work with children." - Debra A. Katz, a--a Director, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Residency Program, University of Kentucky College of Medicinea--a , USA "Written in warm and accessible language, this book provides an in-depth understanding of child development, with immediate connections to intervention and assessment. Theoretical knowledge is expertly woven into suggestions for practice, making this book highly readable and useful. Davies provides plentiful examples that illustrate his points in a colorful way. I would unhesitatingly choose this book for graduate courses in child development and child psychotherapy." - Lisa Aronson Fontes, Program in Clinical Psychology, Union Institute and University, USA
