Evidence-Based Psychotherapies for Children and Adolescents
This volume provides a uniquely practical overview of evidence-based treatments for social, emotional, and behavioral problems in children and youth. Pioneering clinical researchers offer accessible, hands-on presentations of their respective approaches: what the primary therapeutic goals and methods are, how interventions are delivered on a session-by-session basis, how to tell if the treatment is suitable for a particular child, and what manuals and materials are available to clinicians and researchers. Therapist qualifications are summarized and training and supervision needs reviewed. Chapters also include concise reviews of the evidence supporting each approach and discuss important directions for future research.
