From Research to Practice in Child and Adolescent Mental Health demonstrates how research data can be concretely applied in various cultural contexts around the world. This book has been shaped to reflect the mental health needs of children and adolescents in Low and Middle Income Countries (LAMIC). It also includes chapters on topics based on research and practice in high income countries, which may have lessons and implications universally.
