Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This Second Edition is just the kind of book that students of child psychopathology will crave – the text is compelling, succinct, accessible, and prescriptive; the authors are authoritative leaders in the field. Highly recommended." - Stephen Hinshaw, Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, UC Berkeley, USA and Editor, Psychological Bulletin, USA

"In this well written and highly informative textbook, Kendall and Comer lay out the rationale for and characteristics of a cognitive-behavioral approach to treating childhood mental disorders. The book is accessible, evidence-based, up-to-date, and full of clinical pearls. For those interested in a wonderful overview of modern psychotherapeutic interventions in youth - and since it is now clear that mental illness begins in childhood, everyone should be - this is the perfect place to start." - John S. March, Director of Division of Neurosciences Medicine, Duke Clinical Research Institute, Duke University Medical Center, North Carolina, USA
