Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An insightful and practical guide that looks at the role neuroscience plays as it relates to the treatment of childhood and adolescent disorders

Written in an accessible way, Brain-Based Therapy with Children and Adolescents: Evidence-Based Treatment for Everyday Practice shows clinicians how they can become more effective therapists by understanding and applying recent findings about the brain in their work with children and adolescents. The result is a new kind of therapy, one that takes into account both the uniqueness of each child or adolescent, as well as the requirements of standardized care as recommended by evidence-based practice—offering mental health professionals advice they can put into practice immediately.

Relying on research in developmental neurobiology, brain imaging, and evidence-based psychotherapeutic practices, the authors, experts in both neuroscience and evidence-based practice, cover:

  • The importance of understanding how the brain develops and functions in doing the actual work of child and adolescent psychotherapy

  • Recent neuroscientific discoveries and how these can be integrated into evidence-based interventions to create uniquely effective treatments

  • Evidence-based nterventions for the most common childhood and adolescent disorders, such as ADHD, OCD,ʡnd depression

  • Tips on helping children and adolescents re-regulate such neurodynamically important processes as sleep and the mind-body relationship

Incorporating useful vignettes that illustrate how to include these new treatments into effective client care, Brain-Based Therapy with Children and Adolescents: Evidence-Based Treatment for Everyday Practice explains the concept of brain-based therapy in a succinct and easy-to-grasp way, enabling therapists to make practical sense of neuroscience and how it can work within their daily practice.

Synopsis:

Designed for mental health professionals treating children and adolescents, Brain-Based Therapy with Children and Adolescents: Evidence-Based Treatment for Everyday Practice is a simple but powerful primer for understanding and successfully implementing the most critical elements of neuroscience into an evidence-based mental health practice. Written for counselors, social workers, psychologists, and graduate students, this new treatment approach focuses on the most common disorders facing children and adolescents, taking into account the uniqueness of each client, while preserving the requirements of standardized care under evidence-based practice.
