About this book

The second edition of the handbook examines advances in therapeutic approaches for behavioral, developmental, and emotional problems in children. It describes therapies that have evolved in response to improvements in diagnostic systems, methodological approaches, and new evidence regarding treatment efficacy and effectiveness. The volume provides a comprehensive review of what works, for whom, and under what circumstances. New and updated chapters in this second edition address the empirical basis of a range of treatment approaches for common internalizing, externalizing, developmental, and medically related disorders and conditions. In addition, chapters highlight therapeutic principles underlying treatment success and identifies specific interventions and resources to facilitate translation of the best available evidence into clinical practice. Finally, the handbook concludes with future recommendations and next steps for evidence-based therapies.

The handbook features evidence-based therapies for:

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder.
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder for youths.
  • Depressive disorders in childhood and adolescence.
  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. 
  • Autism spectrum disorders.
  • Aggression and antisocial behavior.
  • Chronic pain management.
  • Enuresis and encopresis.
  • Pediatric obesity.
  • Adolescent substance abuse disorders.
  • Eating disorders in children and adolescents.

The second edition of the Handbook of Evidence-based Therapies for Children and Adolescents provides an invaluable resource for researchers, graduate students, clinicians and therapists and professionals in clinical child and school psychology, social work, child and adolescent psychiatry, developmental psychology and related disciplines.
