Issues addressed include cultural variation in perceptions of 'disorder/impairment/disability', prevalence and risk factors, rationales and methods of early identification, principles of clinical assessment and evidence-based intervention, working with bilingual and bicultural clients, service delivery models and methods for judging the effectiveness of intervention.
