In the press
"This informative, scholarly work is both developmentally sensitive and clinically valuable. It marries a powerful theoretical foundation with eminently practical and down-to-earth clinical strategies. I highly recommend it."--Steven D. Hollon, PhD, Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University
"This is an extremely helpful and information-rich resource for any mental health professional working with children and adolescents. By placing cognitive perspectives and treatment methods within a broader developmental systems perspective, and thus attending to the transactions between the multiple biological, social, and environmental factors that are likely to be implicated in a problem, the editors and contributors give the reader a way of understanding and approaching problems that takes account of the complexities of real life. I highly recommend this text to social work students and practitioners who work in this area."--Sharon Berlin, PhD, School of Social Service Administration, University of Chicago
"This timely, comprehensive second edition retains the key features and strengths of the original volume. While there are a number of excellent books on cognitive therapy for adults, the application of cognitive therapy to child and adolescent psychopathology still has not been as well described. This volume stands out by virtue of the authors, all of whom are leaders in their respective fields; the coverage, which manages to be very broad without sacrificing depth; and the developmental perspective. Incorporating findings from developmental psychopathology, the book demonstrates how cognitive therapy can successfully attend to the young client's family context and his or her developmental needs, tasks, and trajectories. Covering a wide range of child and adolescent disorders, this book will serve as an excellent text for graduate-level courses in evidence-based treatment. It is also an excellent reference for clinical scientists and practitioners."--Anne D. Simons, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Oregon
