Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

In this expansion of the 2003 edition, Weisz (psychology, Harvard Medical School) and Kazdin (psychology and child psychiatry, Yale U.) introduce 35 chapters by international contributors that include new chapters focusing on evidence-based psychotherapies for obsessive-compulsive disorder, substance abuse disorders, posttrauamtic stress disorder and other traumas; therapies for minority youth; and thinking outside the box implementation and policy contexts. Collectively, the text captures processes from conceptualization of clinical problems to testing, interventions ranging from adolescent skills' training to Internet self-help, and outcomes. Lastly, the editors' summarize future challenges for this field and suggest that greater attention be paid to the developmental sciences. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
