Weisz, J.R., & Kazdin, A.E. (Eds.) (2017)

Widely regarded as the standard reference and text on evidence-based therapies–and now substantially revised–this book has introduced tens of thousands of clinicians and students to exemplary treatments for social, emotional, and behavioral problems in children and youth. Concise chapters focus on specific psychotherapy models. The developers of the respective approaches review their conceptual underpinnings, describe how interventions are delivered on a session-by-session basis, and summarize what the research shows about treatment effectiveness. The book explores important questions and challenges facing the field and identifies best practices for treatment dissemination in real-world clinical contexts.

New to This Edition:

  • Existing chapters significantly revised with the latest treatment research.
  • Chapters on assessment, personalizing evidence-based therapies, clinical implications of developmental psychopathology, and advances in neuroscience.
  • Coverage of additional clinical problems (self-injury and suicidal ideation, bulimia nervosa, encopresis) and treatments (Early Start Denver Model for autism spectrum disorder, Internet-assisted and technology-enhanced interventions).
  • Chapters on implementation in complex mental health systems, as well as international models.
