Back cover copy

This is the first book to offer an explicitly competencies-based approach to the cognitive-behavioural treatment of anxiety and depression in children and young people. Within it, an outstanding and influential set of experts in the field describe a comprehensive model of therapist competencies required for empirically supported cognitive behavioral treatment. They explore each of these competencies in great detail, and highlight effective ways of training these competencies. As a result, the book not only supports the training, development and assessment of competent clinicians who are implementing CBT, it is also invaluable for clinicians who wish to gain an understanding of the competencies they need to acquire or improve, guidelines for how to achieve these, providing a benchmark against which they can assess themselves. "Evidence-Based CBT" "for Anxiety and Depression in Children and Adolescents" works to improve the quality of therapists working in this area, and as a result, the quality of treatment that many young people receive.
