Psychopathology in children and adolescents has been extensively researched and addressed in terms of its epidemiology, expression, developmental pathways, and causes. And despite all the research studies and findings, the question remained: Are the emotional and behavioral problems of girls unique to the distinct aspects of female development, behavior, and adjustment? To fully understand and address the emotional and behavioral problems of girls, their distinct characteristics must be examined in terms of both developmental progression and context—that is, in terms of their various ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic backgrounds as well as family, school, and peer environments and influences.

The Handbook of Behavioral and Emotional Problems in Girls provides such an integrative conceptual framework in which to address such issues as:

Mood and anxiety disorders.

Eating and body image disorders.

ADHD, pervasive developmental disorders, learning disorders, and mental retardation.

Aggression and delinquency.

Physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect.

Abuse and violence in dating relationships.

Substance abuse and homelessness.

Gender-identity disorder.

In one easy-to-use volume, the Handbook not only examines the most current theory and research as it relates to girls, it also addresses the possibility for real-world assessment as well as treatment and prevention of their emotional and behavioral disorders. It provides clinicians, academics, and mental health professionals with a comprehensive and well-balanced presentation that focuses solely on the unique behaviors and emotions of girls.
