This comprehensive book evaluates the evidence for the full range of widely used child and adolescent mental health treatments, providing vital knowledge to inform clinical decision making. Organized around the major presenting problems in child and adolescent practice, the book synthesizes findings from hundreds of carefully selected studies on both psychosocial and pharmacological approaches. Each chapter introduces the clinical problem at hand, systematically reviews the available outcome research, spells out recommendations for evidence-based practice; and considers implications for service development. Written by experienced researchers and practitioners, the volume emphasizes the importance of tailoring all interventions to the needs of the individual child.Fonagy, Peter is the author of 'What Works for Whom?
