Innovative Interventions in Child and Adolescent Mental Health is a unique composite of the literature on various innovative interventions for children and adolescents, and provides a developmental and neurobiological rationale for utilizing innovative interventions with this population. Based on the latest research, this book emphasizes that children and adolescents need more than just talk therapy. These innovative interventions can be applied in a variety of practice settings including schools, juvenile justice, community-based counseling centers, and residential treatment. This book bridges the gap between theory and practice, and provides a historical, theoretical, and research-based rationale, as well as a helpful case study, for each type of intervention being discussed.

"In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Christine Norton and her team of esteemed contributing authors provide the reader with a range of innovative interventions in child and adolescent mental health. This book is a must-have for those students and clinicians that desire to reach beyond traditional talk therapy."--David Springer, Social Work, University of Texas at Austin "Norton and her colleagues identify cutting-edge interventions designed to include young people in structured activities involving art, nature, music, animals, bibliotherapy, and meditation. This book is an important resource for practitioners working in child and adolescent mental health settings."--Jeff Jenson, Social Work, University of Denver aaaaa "Dr. Norton's "Innovative Interventions" is a sorely needed and well done addition to the treatment literature. While this book focuses on younger clients, I suspectathese modalities of healing would yield fruit with clients of any age."--Louis Cozolino, Psychology, Pepperdine University
