A shorter, more focused version of the highly acclaimed Innovations in Clinical Practice: A Source Book series. This volume explores the important issues in assessing and treating children and adolescents. This volume will expand your knowledge, sharpen your skills, and teach you new techniques for working with this population.
All of the highly praised features of the original Innovations series have been retained, including:
* Contributions by experienced researchers and clinicians presenting exciting new techniques and concepts.
* Clear, concise ideas typically available only at professional workshops.
* Presentations with a “how-to-do-it” emphasis - immediately usable in your practice.
Contributions covering a broad range of concerns including:
* Empirically supported assessment and treatment procedures;
* Useful instruments and forms;
* Community interventions and opportunities for expanding your practice;
* Ethical and legal issues;
* Client handouts.
All new material with no duplication from prior volumes.
NEW features in this and future Innovations volumes include:
* A less expensive deluxe paperbound binding while still maintaining the large 8½" x 11" format;
* Multiple volumes each year instead of only one large annual volume;
* A focus on discrete clinical problems and populations.
“Innovations in Clinical Practice, with its new format focusing in depth on relevant clinical problems or populations is of immeasurable value to practitioners. The clinical issues discussed not only provide state of the art, background information on selected clinical topics but also provide the practitioner ideas for assessment and treatment. . . . [It] focuses on topics important in today’s practice.”

“A valuable resource that is easy to read and understand, this volume offers an interesting collection of articles on the most current issues dealing with youth. It provides practical information with pertinent forms and handouts that can readily be assimilated into a clinical practice. The ‘Ethical and Legal Issues in Working with Children and Adolescents’ should be read by anyone who works with children and their families. I have acquired many additional tools to incorporate into my work.”
