Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 884–885. Reviews the book, The Emotionally Troubled Child: A Guide for Parents and Teachers in the Early Recognition of Mental and Nervous Disorders in Children by Robert L. Mason, Jr., Bert O. Richmond, and Lucien B. Fleurant (1976). The authors have attempted to provide a guide that will help parents and teachers identify nascent psychological problems in children and seek professional help in time. They use a format of case studies, followed by a discussion of each, for children from preschool through adolescence showing a variety of disorders. Interspersed are summary lists of symptoms and behavior indicative of various conditions, including neurological dysfunctions, psychopathy, depression, homosexuality, psychosis, and phobias. This book is designed to help both parents and teachers recognize those behaviors in their children which indicate the need for assistance from mental health professionals.
