Presenting a comprehensive developmental approach, this book examines the origins and course of normal and pathological dissociation in children and adolescents. The volume illustrates the critical connection between pathological dissociation and trauma, and provides a clear synthesis of what is known about the psychobiology of dissociative disorders and the effects of pathological dissociation on cognition, memory, and behavior. Amply illustrated with clinical vignettes, the book describes an array of diagnostic and treatment techniques and includes reproducible copies of validated dissociation scales for all age groups. This book would be of use to clinicians working with child, adolescent, or adult dissociative clients and with other victims of child maltreatment as well as students of psychology, psychiatry, and related mental health fields. PHOTOCOPY RIGHTS: The publisher grants to individual purchasers of this book nonassignable permission to reproduce the scales it contains for clinical use with their clients.

Frank W. Putnam, MD, is a leading authority on dissociative disorders. Trained as a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist, he is Chief of Developmental Traumatology at the National Institute of Mental Health and directs clinical research on the effects of maltreatment, community violence, and other types of trauma across the lifespan.
