Reviews

'All child therapists should have this book on their shelves. It is written in a candid, user-friendly manner, and is filled with useful resources, such as rating scales that help to capture and quantify the diversity of symptoms in youth, useful downloadable forms, and sample therapist-client dialogues. The information on psychoeducational resources for children and their parents is comprehensive and well organized. The book has a nice balance between the theory of cognitive and behavioral interventions and the practical techniques needed to actually conduct the therapy.'

Craig L. Donnelly, MD, Chief, Section of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry; Director, Pediatric Psychopharmacology, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center
