Thousands of clinicians and students have turned to this casebook—now completely revised with 90% new material—to see what cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) looks like in action with the most frequently encountered child and adolescent disorders. Concise and accessible, the book is designed for optimal clinical utility. Leading scientist-practitioners provide a brief overview of each clinical problem and its assessment and management. Chapters are organized around one or more detailed case examples that demonstrate how to build rapport with children and families; plan effective, age-appropriate treatment; and deliver evidence-based interventions using a variety of therapeutic strategies and materials. (Prior edition editors: Mark A. Reinecke, Frank M. Dattilio, and Arthur Freeman.)
