This ‘bible’ of selective mutism is now in its second edition. A comprehensive and practical guide grounded in behavioural psychology and anxiety management, it is written by speech and language specialists, one of whom is national advisor for selective mutism for the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. One section is dedicated to strategies to be used in early years settings, and the theory, research and the authors’ own clinical experience help underpin understanding in general. This edition contains new material on adolescents and adults.
