Overview


With the advance of evidence-based practice has come the publication of numerous dense volumes reviewing the theoretical and empirical components of child and adolescent treatment. There are also a variety of detailed treatment manuals that describe the step-by-step procedures to guide ongoing research and practice. The second edition of Craig Winston LeCroy's Handbook of Evidence-Based Child and Adolescent Treatment Manuals is a forceful combination of the two approaches, as he gathers fifteen varied treatment manuals and brief summaries of the research supporting each to ensure that practitioners will truly understand how to implement the treatments they are using.

A completely revised and expanded edition of the handbook's first edition, this is an essential guide to some of the best programs for helping children and teens. Each chapter begins with an explanatory section that discusses the theoretical and empirical underpinnings of the programs. The treatment manual follows, leading readers through sessions with specific details about conducting the treatment that have been refined and improved through extensive testing and research. Organized into three sections: the major clinical disorders, social problems confronting children and teens, and preventive interventions the Handbook brings together some of the most esteemed researcher-practitioners in the child and adolescent field. The book presents an impressive variety of innovative treatment programs and techniques including: the SiHLE program (intended to prevent problems confronting children and teens, and preventive interventions the Handbook brings together some of the most esteemed researcher-practitioners in the child and adolescent field. The book presents an impressive variety of innovative treatment programs and techniques including: the SiHLE program (intended to prevent HIV through education and self-esteem building), the Children of Divorce Intervention Program (a therapy for younger children stressing resilience and skill-building), and Strengths Oriented Family Therapy (which reaches out to substance-involved adolescents and their families).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This exceptional volume illustrates why many consider LeCroy to be one of the field's leading experts on youth treatment. Any practitioner or student who works with youth should have a copy of this book on their desk. A warning is in order, however: never loan this book to anyone, because once 'borrowed' it is unlikely to be returned."--Kevin Corcoran, Professor, School of Social Work, Portland State University

"Amidst the current controversy of evidence-based practice, LeCroy's new edition of treatment manuals for children and adolescents is welcome. His collection of evidence-based prevention and treatment manuals reflects not only his own energy and years of clinical experience but also those of his esteemed contributors, many of whom are luminaries in the field. The contributors provide us a rich glimpse into what works for a variety of social and clinical problems. Overall, this volume is conceptually rich, clinically savvy, research-driven, and respectful of various theoretical persuasions and positions. This is a book that belongs in all graduate training programs that espouse evidence-based practice and on the book shelves of all clinicians who work with youth. They deserve the very best we can offer them."-- Thomas H. Ollendick, University Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychology and Child Study Center, Virginia Tech

"Dr. LeCroy's compilation of protocols is like a "greatest hits" of evidence-based practices and cognitive-behavioral procedures. For anyone seeking exposure to many of the latest innovations in child treatment and prevention, this book is more than just an excellent reference; it contains the detailed steps on how to get these procedures working in practice. There is something here for everyone."--Bruce F. Chorpita, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Psychology, University of California-Los Angeles
