While cognitive-behavioral therapy has developed rapidly in recent years, its application with children and adolescents has received only minimal attention. Expanding the boundaries of contemporary cognitive-behavioral therapy, this much-needed volume addresses myriad up-to-date strategies and techniques for treating common difficulties experienced by children and adolescents. Grounded in a strong developmental orientation, contributing authors address numerous disorders that are commonly confronted by mental health professionals working with children and their families, as well as other problems that are encountered less frequently. Chapters begin with a review of the relevant literature, then present extended case examples, including DSM-IV diagnoses, which clearly demonstrate the use and implementation of cognitive'behavioral techniques. This book will be of value to clinicians working with children as well as researchers and students in mental health. It will also serve as a text for courses on child clinical psychology and psychotherapy.Reinecke, Mark A. is the author of 'Cognitive Therapy W/children+adol.' with ISBN 9781572300224 and ISBN 1572300221.
