Cognitive Therapy with Children and Adolescents
Second Edition A Casebook for Clinical Practice
by Edited by Mark A. Reinecke, Frank M. Dattilio, and Arthur Freeman

Now in a revised and updated second edition, this clinically oriented casebook and text presents empirically supported interventions for a wide range of child and adolescent problems.

Full Description:   

Now in a revised and updated second edition, this clinically oriented casebook and text presents empirically supported interventions for a wide range of child and adolescent problems. Leading cognitive-behavioral therapists demonstrate assessment and treatment approaches that have been carefully adapted--or specially designed--to meet the needs of young patients. Incorporating the latest, most innovative techniques, the volume reflects significant recent advances in knowledge about vulnerability and resilience, processes of change, and treatment effectiveness. Following a consistent format, each chapter reviews the relevant literature and presents an extended case example bringing to life what an experienced therapist might do, why, and how to do it. With new chapters on OCD, personality disorders, and social anxiety, the casebook also addresses oppositional behavior, ADHD, substance misuse, depression, sexual abuse, high-functioning autism, PTSD, and other frequently encountered clinical challenges.

"...a welcome addition to the growing body of clinically relevant, data-based literature....the Editors fulfill their goals admirably, providing a wealth of scientific knowledge and integrating it with clinical experience. They succeed in covering a broad range of issues in a clear and understandable manner. In every respect this is a well-edited book. Appropriate readers will include working clinicians, clinical supervisors, and teachers and students in professional counseling, social work, or related advanced psychology courses. The text itself is well-organized and the references are extensive, helpful, and up-to-date. In managing to bring closer together the rigors of science and the demands of practice this Handbook is well worth readers' attention."
-Child & Family Behavior Therapy (Mark Glat in Volume 27, Number 1, 2005)

"The chapters on attention-deficit/hyperactivity, social anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorders are excellent. Each chapter illustrates how skilled therapists can flexibly and creatively adapt standard protocols to a youth's developmental age so that interventions are engaging and effective. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on cognitive-behavior therapy for youth with low self-esteem, academic problems, and autism spectrum disorders....the editors have assembled an impressive cast of experts and an intriguing array of topics in the second edition of this work. Experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists will enjoy the chapters on treating problems not commonly covered in other texts on cognitive-behavior therapy for youth and for problems they frequently treat will likely add a few tricks to their bag from the skilled and thoughtful authors. Those clinicians new to cognitive-behavior therapy for youth will find the book a useful introduction to the adaptability and flexibility of cognitive-behavioral formulation and treatment of a wide variety of problems typically seen in routine clinical practice."
-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews (Michael A. Tompkins in Volume 1, Number 5, 2005)

"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....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

"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
