What Works with Children and Adolescents?: A Critical Review of Psychological Interventions with Children, Adolescents and their Families
Routledge, Jul 23, 2013 - Psychology - 384 pages
What Works with Children and Adolescents? fulfils the need for a concise, empirically-based study of the types of psychological treatments that may be effective for common psychological problems in childhood and adolescence.
Providing a solid foundation for evidence-based practice in the treatment of children and adolescents, the book offers evidence from over 150 rigorously conducted research trials. Examining problems which are of central concern to practising clinicians - including child abuse, enuresis and encopresis, ADHD, childhood conduct problems, adolescent violence, drug abuse, anxiety and depression, anorexia and bulimia nervosa, paediatric pain, and post-divorce adjustment problems - it also highlights priority areas for future research on the treatment of children and adolescents' psychological problems.
What Works with Children and Adolescents? complements The Handbook of Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology (Carr, 2006), and will be valuable to professionals in training.
