Now in a revised and updated third edition, this major professional reference and text offers an authoritative review of evidence-based treatments for the most prevalent child and adolescent problems. Leading contributors present state-of-the-art applications for anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, ADHD, autistic spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, the effects of maltreatment, substance use, and more. The third edition incorporates important, ongoing developments in research and treatment design. In particular, increased attention is given to combined treatments and how they translate into real-world clinical settings, and how individual, developmental, and contextual factors may influence outcome.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is one of the few state-of-the-science yet clinically sensitive works that puts forth a rich theoretical and conceptual framework in which to understand, assess, treat, and prevent a diversity of childhood disorders. The third edition comes at a particularly important time, when empirical support for various treatments is growing dramatically. Each up-to-date and scholarly chapter is written by seasoned clinician-researchers who present developmentally sensitive and effective ways to intervene with children and their families. This is a stellar book, one that is suitable for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and clinical child psychology interns and child psychiatry residents. It will be of considerable interest to seasoned practitioners as well."--Thomas H. Ollendick, PhD, Child Study Center and Department of Psychology, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

"The field has been rewarded--the third edition of this leading text is now available! This up-to-date volume, like its predecessors, stands tall as an authoritative text on the treatments for disorder in youth. Chapters are authored by leading scholars who also bring clinically informed treatment expertise to their presentations. Contemporary issues (e.g., empirically supported treatments) are given appropriate and ample coverage, and each disorder receives a thorough and integrative review. This well-informed synthesis of the latest information is ideal for a graduate text or for professional reading and reference."--Philip C. Kendall, PhD, Child and Adolescent Anxiety Disorders Clinic, Temple University

"Provides the clinician with a major update of the many recent advances in the treatment of childhood and adolescent psychopathology. The volume covers all the major developmental, emotional, and behavioral disorders of young people, and while the focus is on treatment, each chapter also contains a concise and up–to-date review of current knowledge regarding clinical assessment and etiologies. For each disorder discussed in the book, the clinician will come away with an excellent sense of the standard of care for that disorder."--Steven R. Pliszka, MD, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

"A well-organized and thoughtful textbook."--Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
Geri R. Donenberg
This updated edition covers five domains of childhood disorders: behavioral (e.g., conduct problems); emotional (e.g., depression, anxiety); developmental (e.g., autism, mental retardation); children at risk (e.g., child maltreatment); and adolescent problems (e.g., substance abuse). Chapters provide an overview of the history, epidemiology, onset, course, and outcome of the disorders; models of etiology; assessment methods; and treatment approaches. Authors present and evaluate empirically based treatments for each disorder, discuss evidence for their efficacy and effectiveness, and indicate future directions. The purpose is to update and review state-of-the-art and scientifically supported treatment methods by experts at the forefront of their fields. The editors' objectives are important and noteworthy, and they accomplish their goals. This book is written primarily for child and adolescent psychologists and psychiatrists interested in staying knowledgeable about therapies with sound scientific evidence for children and adolescents. Researchers, students, and clinicians will find the chapters to be an excellent review of the current literature. Contributors include especially knowledgeable and well-regarded experts. Chapters are consistently well organized and include section headings for easy reading. Several tables and figures supplement the text. Reference lists are extensive and recent and subject and author indexes are provided. Much has changed since the first edition of this book, and this text offers a comprehensive update and critique of empirically supported treatments for the most common childhood disorders. Well-written chapters review evidence for the efficacy andeffectiveness of specific therapies, including psychopharmacological interventions, and critically evaluate lesser known treatments. Some authors describe selected therapies in enough detail for applications in clinical practice. Coverage of the therapy approaches is so thorough that this text is certain to be a definitive reference in the field.
