Title

Bringing together leading authorities, this volume synthesizes the breadth of current research on child and adolescent treatment into a practical handbook for students and clinicians. The book was inspired by the preeminent work on adult disorders, Clinical Handbook of Psychological Disorders (now in its fifth edition), edited by David H. Barlow. It provides a concise overview of the disorders most commonly encountered in clinical practice and details evidence-based treatment approaches, largely grounded in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Procedures for assessment, diagnosis, case formulation, intervention, and progress monitoring are illustrated with rich extended case examples, including session transcripts. The book addresses nuts-and-bolts issues such as how to set up each session, what to cover, and how to broach difficult topics with children and parents.
