'This book offers a simple, straightforward introduction to
interventions for youth and parents. By highlighting the common
elements of specific evidence-based treatments, readers are
provided with an eminently usable roadmap in their work with a
range of disorders and conditions.' Timothy A. Cavell, University
'This edited volume presents a comprehensive approach to what works in evidence-based treatments for youth and families. What makes it unique is its focus on intervention components, as opposed to manualized intervention packages. It should be on the desks of clinicians, educators, researchers, and graduate students - and will be widely consulted.' Robert J. McMahon, Simon Fraser University, Canada
'Hupp's terrific new handbook brings together many of the field's leading authorities to offer an authoritative yet accessible 'one-stop shop' on youth interventions. This timely handbook's strategic emphasis on evidence-based principles and practices over specific protocols aligns it well with the current state-of-the-science.' Jonathan S. Comer, Florida International University
'Hupp scores big in this volume on child and adolescent psychotherapy. Huge, in fact! He and his contributors provide a rich glimpse into the elements or components of evidence-based treatments for a variety of child and adolescent problems and disorders. The twenty chapters in this volume not only cover the field, they stretch the field, and they guide us into the next generation of evidence-based assessment and treatment practices. This volume belongs in the hands of clinicians and researchers alike - it is a book whose time has come, and which will surely advance clinical science in the years ahead.' Thomas H. Ollendick,, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
'Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy will be a most valuable go-to for practitioners puzzling about choices of safe and effective treatments for childhood mental health disorders. Helpfully organized in parallel to DSM, the book really has everything: illuminating discussions of common factors, developmental contexts, parent roles, and demographic differences.' Jean Mercer, Stockton University, New Jersey
