However, the clinicians who treated children did so following training procedures that had been based primarily on work with adult patients. Therefore, the need to develop methods more suited to developmental populations was not considered necessary, at this time, since childhood psychopathology was considered to share the same features as adult psychopathology and treated using adult methods (Peterson & Roberts, 1991).
