Abstract

This paper presents a summary of the prevalence of somatic, anxiety and depressive disorders in children and of the known risk and protective factors associated with these problems. It then reviews the evidence for successful treatments and prevention programmes, focusing on psychological therapies rather than pharmacological interventions, with particular emphasis on interventions for children of primary school age.
