'The field has been rewarded - the third edition of this leading text is now available! This up-to-date volume, like its predecessors, stands tall as an authoritative text on the treatments for disorder in youth. Chapters are authored by leading scholars who also bring clinically informed treatment expertise to their presentations. Contemporary issues (e.g., empirically supported treatments) are given appropriate and ample coverage, and each disorder receives a thorough and integrative review. This well-informed synthesis of the latest information is ideal for a graduate text or for professional reading and reference.' "- Philip C. Kendall, PhD, Child and Adolescent Anxiety Disorders Clinic, Temple University" 'Provides the clinician with a major update of the many recent advances in the treatment of childhood and adolescent psychopathology. The volume covers all the major developmental, emotional, and behavioral disorders of young people, and while the focus is on treatment, each chapter also contains a concise and up-to-date review of current knowledge regarding clinical assessment and etiologies. For each disorder discussed in the book, the clinician will come away with an excellent sense of the standard of care for that disorder.' "- Steven R.
