In this book, a clinical scientist highlights youth psychotherapies that have been tested and shown to work. Treatments for fears and anxiety, depression, attention deficits and ADHD, and conduct problems and disorder are described in detail, their conceptual basis explained, their clinical application illustrated by richly developed case examples, and their prospects for use in clinical practice examined closely. This clinical perspective is complemented by summaries and critiques of the empirical evidence on each treatment and by commentaries on what questions remain unanswered. The author's clinical and scientific experience converge to produce a uniquely valuable experience on exemplary treatments for children and adolescents.

'... useful to academics, researchers, trainee therapists, and to practitioners who want structured cognitive-behaviour treatment programmes to follow in their work with youngsters.' Young Minds '... a highly readable account summarizing the current 'state of the art; treatments for common emotional and behavioural disorders in childhood and adolescence ... each chapter readily available for clinician and researcher alike ... I thoroughly recommended this excellent book by John Weisz to all clinicians and clinician researchers in child and adolescent mental health services. Do not wait to find the one library copy being absent without leave when you most want it - buy your own!' Psychological Medicine
