Explores salient issues in working effectively with minority youth. Flessner and Piacentini's volume is a 'must have' for clinicians of all disciplines, as each chapter not only lays out the evidence-based treatments for a particular condition or problem, but also shows how to deliver the treatment in question. There's no book like it in child and adolescent mental health; it will be especially useful for graduate and professional training courses. Highly recommended. The editors have recruited foremost authorities on evidence-based psychotherapy.
Each elegantly structured chapter provides a clear description of the problem, reviews established and promising assessment and treatment protocols, and outlines step-by-step interventions in easily digestible and executable modules, illustrated with sample transcripts and case vignettes. The book provides needed guidance for the everyday practitioner who is managing an ever-more diverse and complicated caseload. Contributors provide important information on assessment and intervention for the full continuum of childhood psychological and behavioral disorders.
Presenting developmentally appropriate, evidence-based interventions, this handbook will be invaluable for trainees, rising professionals, and established clinicians.
It covers the child and adolescent disorders most likely to be encountered by clinicians. I use this text in my graduate-level child and adolescent psychotherapy course and recommend it both for trainees and for seasoned clinicians who wish to remain up to date. Don't want the mobile site?
