Understanding a child's viewpoint is often considered helpful within child clinical psychology. Personal construct theory offers a practical method that allows children to express their viewpoint relating to behaviour, feelings, self-construing, and solutions. The first edition of this highly respected reference described how to apply personal construct theory when attempting to understand and help children and young people. Heavily revised with much new material, the new Second Edition contains several new sections that present new and creative techniques for understanding children?s perspectives as well as a chapter on evidence-based practice.
