Norwich, UK: Springer, Here, spirituality is treated within various professions education, business, health professions, etc. The overarching theme is that spirituality has to do with connectedness to others, to the Earth, and to transcendent mystery. The book is an essential read for understanding how spirituality is talked about in the early 21st century—with its emphasis on individual experiences and individual disciplines and not on any one particular way of defining spiritual development. Dowling, Elizabeth, and W. George Scarlett, eds. Encyclopedia of Spiritual Development in Childhood and Adolescence.
The encyclopedia provides short discussions of concepts, practices, texts, traditions, and other themes central to religious and spiritual development—a kind of extended dictionary that can be useful for anyone doing research on religious and spiritual development but especially useful for those who do not have a background in religious studies or related fields.

While not focusing specifically on spiritual development in childhood and adolescence, this journal has published influential articles on spirituality in childhood and adolescence—particularly seminal articles expressing the child studies perspective on spirituality.

George Scarlett, and Anton Bucher. Edited by Richard M. Up until the sixth edition, the Handbook of Child Psychology had never had a chapter on religious and spiritual R-S development. Development and implementation of a multi-sector policy and strategic action plans for child and adolescent mental health is a high priority. In this process, the role of child and adolescent psychiatrists must be clearly defined.
Multi-sector mental health policy is best characterized by a holistic, evidence-based approach to the identification and treatment of mental disorders, with specific attention to prevention, early intervention, and rehabilitation for psychiatric disorders [ 35 ]. To be effective, it is important that a multi-sector child and adolescent mental health policy be reflected in all levels of the government and community, and include: human rights, service organization and delivery, development of human resources, sustainable financing, civil society and advocacy, quality improvement, information systems, program evaluation and plans to address stigma.
Child and adolescent psychiatrists can and should play a greater leadership role in advocating for human rights. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is at the core of the transnational commitment to protecting children and adolescents [ 36 ]. It guarantees children the full range of human rights and sets international standards for the rights of the individual child. Advocacy around the prevention of psychological trauma is a particularly important focus given that early childhood exposure is likely to affect formative developmental processes in a manner that impairs the foundation of future growth and that may have intergenerational consequences.
Early childhood interventions including those addressing mental health and socio-emotional development should be integrated into the systems for general healthcare with adequate funding; they can and should be provided as a core element of the larger investment in the health, economic prosperity, and safety of each nation and community.
7.3 Adolescence: Developing Independence and Identity
Caregiving relationships that are sensitive and responsive to infant needs are critical to human development and thereby constitute a basic right of infancy. Sound and supported parenting is a critical part of safe and effective childrearing and must be a central theme in the developmental model offered by child and adolescent psychiatry. Adolescents should be recognized as representing a special population. On the one hand, the community must respect their developmental rights and movement toward full autonomy; on the other, there must be a recognition that their capacities may be limited in some functional areas.
Adolescents therefore need a different approach in fostering healthy development and resilience. They should be protected from violence and exploitation, but approaches must take into account their emerging competencies and capacities developing during this period of life. In many countries, mental health services for adolescents either do not exist or constitute low quality residential and in-patient services, sometimes violating human rights and relying solely on pharmacologic therapies [ 38 ].
Such services do not represent the current knowledge and acceptable standards for treatment. Although child and adolescent mental disorders are common and effective treatments are now available, services for those in need are largely unavailable.
The failure to address the mental health needs of children and adolescents represents a failure to address a substantial public health problem and constitutes a profound and broad-based failure to meet intrinsic societal responsibilities. Child and adolescent psychiatry, as a medical specialty with a strong neurobiological, psychosocial and developmental framework, is in a unique position to bring about change.
Child and adolescent psychiatry is well-suited and well-prepared to take up the leadership role in this time of transition. This role will be enhanced by expanding the number of child and adolescent psychiatrists, as well as building a broader child and adolescent mental health workforce, an engagement with broader health service systems, a greater emphasis on preventive approaches, adapting new research into practice and taking on greater leadership in advocacy. It will require child and adolescent psychiatrists to work differently with disciplines outside of psychiatry, including other physicians and colleagues in related mental health disciplines.
Together, we can work more effectively to bring social and political attention, as well as investment at local, national and global levels to assure proper care of child and adolescent mental disorders. By taking a leadership role in child and adolescent mental health and beyond, child and adolescent psychiatry will enhance healthy and productive development of our children and adolescents and the entire world community.

Shaping the future of child and adolescent psychiatry. Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health 13 Abstract Child and adolescent psychiatry is in a unique position to respond to the growing public health challenges associated with the large number of mental disorders arising early in life, but some changes may be necessary to meet these challenges.
Child and adolescent psychiatry is in a unique position to respond to the growing public health challenges associated with mental disorders arising early in life.
However, to meet these challenges, the field must consider some changes. We take this opportunity to outline four consensus priorities for child and adolescent psychiatry over the next decade: 1.

This comprehensive guide answers these important questions and many more. Part of the well-trusted For Dummies series, it discusses mental disorders and disabilities in children, cognitive development at every stage, behavioural disorders, autism, controlling childhood impulses, developing self-esteem and much more. Steve Biddulph. Girls' mental health is in trouble like never before, with levels of depression, eating disorders and bullying on the rise. However, in this illuminating book, Biddulph sets out the five key stages of girlhood so parents can understand exactly what matters at each stage, and prevent girls from becoming victims.
Parenthood becomes an exciting journey rather than an endless anxiety, as parents are shown how to raise confident, happy and successful girls in the chaotic modern world. Daniel J. Adolescence is often perceived as a time of defiance, rebellion and recklessness, so it's no wonder parents approach it with trepidation!
However, in this pioneering book, neuroscientist Daniel J. Siegel draws on new research to explore promising ways in which understanding the tumultuous teenage brain can help parents nurture children through this period, a time of growth and change which can be extremely positive.
There are plenty of illustrations and facts to answer all the questions they might have and to show them that whatever changes are occurring are completely normal. This is a great book to read with your children or to give to them if they struggle to talk about how they're feeling and what they're experiencing. Just like Usborne's What's Happening to Me? The book addresses key changes boys experience during puberty from shaving to their voices breaking and answers questions they might have. Perfect for reading together to introduce these topics as well as giving them something to refer to as and when they need to, this is book filled with honest answers and sensitivity.
