Handbook of Evidence-Based Therapies for Children and Adolescents
Bridging Science and Practice1929
The comprehensive coverage in this hugely important and timely handbook makes it invaluable to clinical child, school, and counseling psychologists; clinical social workers; and child psychiatrists. As a textbook for advanced clinical and counseling psychology programs, and a solid reference for the researcher in child/adolescent mental health, its emphasis on flexibility and attention to emerging issues will help readers meet ongoing challenges, as well as advance the field. Its relevance cannot be overstated, as growing numbers of young people have mental health problems requiring intervention, and current policy initiatives identify evidence-based therapies as the most effective and relevant forms of treatment.

From the reviews: "This book provides a review of the literature on treatments for various diseases and disorders specific to children and adolescents. It specifically focuses on therapies for children and adolescents with strong empirical support and is intended to deliver a thorough review and discussion of their uses in a wide range of diagnoses. Clinical psychologists are an obvious target for this book, but child psychiatrists and other mental health professionals will also find it relevant to their work. ... superb resource for clinicians working with children." (Christopher J. Graver, Doody's Review Service, September, 2008) "Steele, Elkin, and Roberts ... continue this highly needed job of disseminating evidencebased therapies (EBTs) for children and adolescents with Handbook of Evidence-Based Therapies for Children and Adolescents: Bridging Science and Practice. ... a book for advanced students of applied psychology, such as graduate students in terminal master's or doctoral programs. This book is an excellent and sharp tool for every clinician (psychologist or psychiatrist) who is in search of bridging science and practice." (Marios Constantinou, Christiana Dipli and Maria Karekia, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 53 (49), December, 2008)
