About this book

The aim of this book on psychotherapies with children and families is to present a comprehensive overview of the current array of intervention approaches in the child mental health field. There is a focus on the integration of theory, research, and practice throughout the book. The book proceeds from the more global pre­ sentations of basic theoretical approaches to applications of these approaches with specific problems and populations. It then presents more integrated intervention approaches and overviews of the research literature. One of the unique features of this book is its focus on future directions for each approach, both in clinical prac­ tice and in research. A second unique feature is its structured format across di­ verse approaches with a focus on empirical validation of approaches. Another innovation is the presentation of interventions that integrate major components of different theoretical approaches. Thus, the book reflects the current trends in the field of interventions with specific problems and populations, empirical valida­ tion of the approach, and the integration of treatment approaches. There are five major sections in this book. Part I consists of four chapters that address a variety of issues related to child psychotherapy. Chapter 1 by the editors examines the historical roots of child psychotherapy and explores current trends in the treatment of diverse child disorders. It emphasizes the movement to "treat­ ments that work" and sets the stage for the chapters that follow.

Reviews

`This state-of-the-art volume fulfills the need for a comprehensive overview of the major therapeutic approaches for children and adolescents. Internationally recognized leaders in the field highlight important theory, research, and practice issues in the chapters. Reflecting the current trends in the field, the book focuses on empirically-supported treatments and the integration of treatment modalities. Highly recommended for both practitioners and students!'
Charles E. Schaefer, Ph.D., Fairleight Dickinson University
`A first-rate collection of theoretical perspectives, treatment descriptions, and research reviews. An excellent resource for both psychotherapy researchers and practitioners. A rich compendium of ideas and evidence, written by distinguished theorists and researchers in the field; the book provides clear descriptions of what we now know about child and family therapy, plus provocative ideas for future research and practice. This fine book offers well-written accounts of major treatment approaches, evidence on their effects, and illustrative applications to specific problems and populations, all situated within a rich conceptual framework. The contributors are leaders in the field who have important things to say about the past, present, and future of intervention with children and families.'
John Weisz, Ph.D., UCLA
`This new handbook provides an extraordinarily broad and deep source of information about the ways and means of conducting psychotherapy with young people and their families. Scholars and practitioners alike will value the thorough coverage of major treatment approaches with respect to their conceptual foundations, treatment guidelines, and empirically validated applications.'
Irving B. Weiner, Ph.D., University of Southern Florida
`This book is a welcome and timely addition to the literature on the treatment of children. The unique organization of the book allows the reader to both understand and compare diverse intervention methods.'
Carolyn S. Schroeder, Ph.D., University of Kansas
`...this book can be highly recommended as a reference text relevant to psychiatrists involved in child and adolescent psychotherapy practice or research.'
European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, 10:158-159 (2001)
