About the Authors
  • Sleep disturbance is commonplace and causes much personal distress to sufferers and their families. It is implicated in a variety of problems, from poor educational performance or disturbed behaviour to accidents or physical dysfunction. Traditionally, research into sleep disorders has generally been undertaken within separate, unconnected medical disciplines and has mainly involved adults. As sleep disturbance is closely associated with serious problems, identifying and treating sleep disorders early is essential for good long-term health and well-being. Yet there is no up-to-date, comprehensive, one-stop source of information for clinicians concerning sleep disorders in young people. Gregory Stores addresses this need with a cross-disciplinary account of available clinical information and treatments, illustrated by actual cases of sleep problems in the young. This book will be essential reading for all professionals involved in child healthcare from infancy to adolescence, and will also be invaluable to general readers looking for up-to-the-minute information and references.

    • Practical, up-to-date, and comprehensive guide for clinicians and other health professionals
    • Illustrated by actual cases
    • Highlights implications for professional training and areas for future research

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This text is a thorough exploration of children's sleep difficulties … It is readable, accessible and very informative … it is a very valuable textbook both for newcomers and for clinicians wishing to refresh their knowledge. It presents a very compelling argument for the need to re-visit this as an important field of work … assessment and treatment are well covered and the content is illustrated with case examples and plenty of references.' The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy

    'The book is nicely laid out, clearly written and interspersed with anecdotes, which illustrate the difficulties and their management … The concise 'basic clinical approach' sections at the end of each chapter will be particularly useful for those in primary care and paediatrics who constantly encounter many children in need of help.' Mary Rudolf, Family Practice

    '… written for any clinicians who regularly come into contact with children in their practice … the use of case studies was very helpful … this is a thorough and clearly written book …'. P. Lucas, Psychology

    ' … an excellent guide to these childhood and adolescent disorders … This book could well serve as a model of what a good basic clinical guide should be and I am sure it will be influential and have wide services for years to come.' Infant and Child Development
