John R. Weisz
Widely regarded as a premier text and clinical resource, this book presents exemplary treatment approaches for a broad range of social, emotional, and behavioral problems in children and youth. Concise chapters from leading authorities describe the conceptual underpinnings of each therapy, how interventions are delivered on a session-by-session basis, and what the research shows about treatment effectiveness. Contributors discuss recommended manuals and other clinical and training resources and provide details on how to obtain them. New to This Edition: * significantly revised and expanded to incorporate current findings and treatment advances * treatments for additional disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, substance use disorders, and posttraumatic stress disorder * an entire section (7 chapters) on implementation and dissemination challenges in real-world clinical settings, including a chapter on cultural diversity issues. This book will appeal to therapists working with children and adolescents, including child psychologists and psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors; graduate students and researchers in these fields. It is also a valuable resource for graduate-level courses in child and adolescent psychotherapy and evidence-based practice.
