Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(2), 231. Reviews the book, Preschool Children in Troubled Families: Approaches to Intervention and Support by Rory Nicol, David Stretch, and Trian Fundudis (1993). The authors describe their research into three intervention approaches for preschoolers in troubled families: intervention through health visits from a professional psychiatric nurse, mothertoddler groups, and family therapy. The authors examine how these intervention approaches affect the child, the mother's mental health, and the marriage between the mother and father. They describe the aim and design of their research and provide separate chapters detailing each intervention and the results of their study.
