Abstract

Discusses what clinical child psychologists have to offer troubled children and their parents and how the psychologists should be trained. The author considers the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-III) and its impact on child diagnoses and treatments, suggesting that it runs the risk of labeling as disordered behaviors that are not.
