Editorial Reviews

Choice
With this guide, Bromfield provides an excellent introduction to the issues and circumstances surrounding child and adolescent psychotherapy. The book will be particularly valuable as an introduction for students interested in learning more about psychotherapy and young patients and what it is like to actually practice with this population. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.
Journal Journ. Amer. Acad.
The writing is deceptively simple, but the material bespeaks a great depth of experience. The teachers in this text are the patients... Plain and simple, it is a wonderful, refreshing text.
—Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
