The book also reviews relevant literature with clinical recommendations, and provides multicultural perspectives and insight into contemporary clinical approaches from experienced clinical supervisors and practitioners, who are also academics and educators in the field. This book includes contributions from both Singaporean and Australian authors, illustrating the multifaceted applications of clinical psychology in multi-cultural contexts. It analyses the emotional, cognitive, interpersonal and psychological development in people in early trajectory. With contributions from both academics and practitioners, the book illustrates practical applications of theories and concepts relevant to the practice of clinical psychology. The book is relevant for students, academics, researchers and practitioners. It also serves as a valuable resource for postgraduate clinical training.
