In this book, a clinical scientist highlights youth psychotherapies that have been tested and shown to work. Treatments for fears and anxiety, depression, attention deficits and ADHD, and conduct problems and disorder are described in detail, their conceptual basis explained, their clinical application illustrated by richly developed case examples, and their prospects for use in clinical practice examined closely. This clinical perspective is complemented by summaries and critiques of the empirical evidence on each treatment and by commentaries on what questions remain unanswered. The author's clinical and scientific experience converge to produce a uniquely valuable experience on exemplary treatments for children and adolescents.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There is plenty in the book to please researchers....The book has several other virtues, including the quality of the writing, the voluminous documentation, the sober appraisal of the current status of EST's for child disorders, and a multistep blueprint for improving future research so that it simultaneously satisfies the researchers and is more helpful to clinicians." Contemporary Psychology

"This is an excellent book for both the novice and experienced therapist as it addresses both the clinical and practical issues of conducting psychotherapy in children and adolescents as well as the more esoteric research isues." - The Canadian Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Review, Suneeta Monga, MD
