Principles and practice of child psychiatry by Stella Chess( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 1986 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stella Chess's many admirers throughout the world have long looked forward to the day when she would produce her own textbook of child psychiatry. They will not be disappointed in this thoughtful and per ceptive account of the principles and practices of the subject, written in collaboration with Dr. Hassibi. It has all the hallmarks we have come to recognize as distinctive of the Chess approach to child psychiatry-gentle yet subtle and penetrating, always appreciative of the feelings and concerns of both the children and their parents, well informed and critically aware of research findings but far from over awed by the contributions of science, and above all immensely practi cal. Anyone who wants to know how one of the world's outstanding clinicians appraises what child psychiatry has to offer could do no bet ter than to read this book. Child psychiatry differs from general psychiatry in being con cerned with a developing organism, and it is entirely appropriate that the book begins with an account of child development and of the prin cipal theories put forward to explain it. Chess and Hassibi recognize the importance of theory in organizing ideas and in suggesting expla nations, but they remain skeptical of how far existing theories do in fact account for the outstanding issues in development. They note the limitations of all theories in explaining how development takes place and why individual differences occur in the way they do

Temperament : theory and practice by Stella Chess( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1956, Stella Chess and Alexander Thomas launched the pioneering New York Longitudinal Study, a systematic investigation into the concept of temperament that has been pursued to the present decade. The findings from this study - that temperamental profiles of infants, children, adolescents, and adults show specific individual behavioral characteristics - are accepted as basic to the psychological mechanism of behavioral functioning. Now, these preeminent authorities and teachers in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry present a distinguished introduction to their internationally recognized work. This volume takes the reader from concept - including the definition of temperament and the studies that support and expand upon that definition - to specific explorations of temperament and its impact across various practice settings and special populations

Annual progress in child psychiatry and child development, 1969 by Stella Chess( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, the second in an annual series, contains 38 articles published during the past year in the field of child psychiatry and child development. The editors attempted to compile articles "of most value to workers in this field both for immediate information and for long-term reference." Accordingly, the articles are of two types: (1) original work that should aid progress in the study of the child, and (2) reviews and discussions of present knowledge and issues. Articles of both types fall under one of the nine major areas of interest covered by the book: infancy studies, the learning process, language studies, the impact of social pathology, mental retardation, childhood psychosis, clinical psychiatry, problems of adolescence, and treatment. The issues examined are contemporary and immediate, as in the new section on the impact of social pathology, which reflects ever-growing concern with the psychological problems of the child who lives in an environment of racism and poverty.
