Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This state-of-the-art volume fulfills the need for a comprehensive overview of the major therapeutic approaches for children and adolescents. Internationally recognized leaders in the field highlight important theory, research, and practice issues in the chapters. Reflecting the current trends in the field, the book focuses on empirically-supported treatments and the integration of treatment modalities. Highly recommended for both practitioners and students!'
Charles E. Schaefer, Ph.D., Fairleight Dickinson University
'A first-rate collection of theoretical perspectives, treatment descriptions, and research reviews. An excellent resource for both psychotherapy researchers and practitioners. A rich compendium of ideas and evidence, written by distinguished theorists and researchers in the field; the book provides clear descriptions of what we now know about child and family therapy, plus provocative ideas for future research and practice. This fine book offers well-written accounts of major treatment approaches, evidence on their effects, and illustrative applications to specific problems and populations, all situated within a rich conceptual framework. The contributors are leaders in the field who have important things to say about the past, present, and future of intervention with children and families.'
John Weisz, Ph.D., UCLA
'This new handbook provides an extraordinarily broad and deep source of information about the ways and means of conducting psychotherapy with young people and their families. Scholars and practitioners alike will value the thorough coverage of major treatment approaches with respect to their conceptual foundations, treatment guidelines, and empirically validated applications.'
Irving B. Weiner, Ph.D., University of Southern Florida
'This book is a welcome and timely addition to the literature on the treatment of children. The unique organization of the book allows the reader to both understand and compare diverse intervention methods.'
Carolyn S. Schroeder, Ph.D., University of Kansas
'...this book can be highly recommended as a reference text relevant to psychiatrists involved in child and adolescent psychotherapy practice or research.'
