Dan Hughes shares his expertise on the symptoms, prognosis and treatment for children affected by emotional and behavioural difficulties, with valuable advice on how parents and carers can help children to improve their behaviour and increase their self-esteem. Prospective adopters and carers are often faced with the prospect of having to decide whether they can care for a child with a health need or condition they know little about and have no direct experience of. It can be difficult to know where to turn for reliable information. What lies behind the diagnoses and “labels” that many looked after children bring with them? And what will it be like to live with them? How will they benefit from family life? This book, part of a series looking at health issues, provides expert knowledge about emotional and behavioural difficulties, a common diagnosis in looked after children. This is coupled with facts, figures and guidance presented in a straightforward and accessible style. Adopters and foster carers also describe what it is like to parent an affected child, “telling it like it is”, sharing their parenting experiences and offering useful advice. This combination of expert information and first-hand experiences will help readers to gain knowledge, achieve understanding, and to make informed decisions.
