The broad array of theoretical approaches that are covered helps to develop a comprehensive understanding of intervention approaches and provides a very solid foundation in child and adolescent therapy.

Review Text

"This book is by far the most comprehensive and useful child therapy text. Amazingly well-written, it is both supremely helpful for new clinical graduate students and an outstanding, sophisticated review for clinicians and researchers. The second edition of this book is even more useful than the original text! The first edition filled a key gap by providing a broad array of useful and evidence based information to new child clinicians learning to conduct therapy with kids and teens. Because of its currency and clinical sophistication, it is also suited to busy practitioners who are looking for practical ways to integrate new, clinically relevant evidence and ideas. The writing engages the reader with a crisp style and clear real-world examples showing a deep understanding of evidenced based work with youth. The revised edition adds new material on mindfulness-based cognitive-behavioral therapies and motivational interviewing, and it weaves recent neuroscience research into discussions of clinical topics. To a unique degree, this book articulates the thought process of an experienced therapist as he or she integrates outcome research and clinical considerations to plan treatment strategy and decide what to do and say in work with clients. We use this textbook in our didactic practicum with new clinical graduate students at the University of North Carolina, and each fall, the students and I enjoy reading the combination of a broad perspective, specific techniques and logistical implementation ideas, as well as up to date references. Child and Adolescent Therapy: Science and Art is a helpful and detailed yet fun read for new and seasoned clinicians!"
--Jen Kogos Youngstrom, PhD, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Director of Child and Family Services and Assessment Clinic The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill"This book combines clear, insightful explanations of the major theoretical orientations, rigorous summaries of outcome research, and the clinical wisdom of an experienced therapist in a unique synthesis that shows readers how to plan treatment and decide what to say when with clients. My graduate students loved the first edition of this book--there's nothing like it. The broad array of theoretical approaches that are covered helps to develop a comprehensive understanding of intervention approaches and provides a very solid foundation in child and adolescent therapy. This new edition has added an excellent chapter on mindfulness-based therapies and has infused a sophisticated neuroscience framework throughout the book. I highly recommend this text to mental health professionals working with young people and to graduate students beginning their work in child and adolescent therapy."
--Sandra W. Russ, Distinguished University Professor Case Western Reserve University"As a researcher, clinician, and instructor in a school psychology graduate program, I appreciate books that offer breadth of content but also sufficient depth in evidence-based practices in order to best prepare future youth mental health professionals. After switching from other texts that were either overly broad and historical or too narrow, I adopted the first edition of this book as the required text for my introductory course in counseling and psychotherapeutic interventions. My graduate students and I have given this book the highest praise. We appreciate the clear, insightful explanations of theory and research and the detailed, vivid instructions for implementation that make the process of therapy come alive. Unlike edited books with chapters by different authors, this text presents psychotherapy as an integrated whole. The chapters cross-reference each other frequently to identify connections and contrasts among the major theories and to show how elements of different approaches can be woven together in customized therapy for each client. My students are particularly thankful for the numerous vignettes and example scripts that illustrate best p
