Synopses & Reviews
"An absolutely stellar book. The contributors include leaders in child therapy who provide sophisticated views of both clinical domains and treatment and address a range of spheres, including cognition, affect, behavior, and social functioning. The third edition conveys in engaging detail the enormous advances that have occurred in child and adolescent therapy, the scope of domains that cognitively based treatments encompass, and the very promising effects one can expect from treatment. This book is one of very few that integrate research and theory with clinical examples and treatment excerpts. As such, it fills a crucial void in the literature for training mental health professionals."--Alan E. Kazdin, PhD, Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine
"Like its predecessors, this volume is a work of genuine quality, written by authorities in the field. Its coverage of interventions for youth with internalizing and externalizing conditions and other important problems, plus the thoughtful attention paid to developmental and treatment process issues, make the book an excellent resource for students and professionals."--John R. Weisz, PhD, Judge Baker Children's Center, Harvard University
"This is the definitive reference for psychotherapeutic interventions for this age group. The third edition comes at a time when empirical support for these treatments is growing dramatically, and when the field is looking for interventions that have the power to effect real change in the lives of children and adolescents. The volume is current and fresh, providing a comprehensive review while setting the stage for the next steps in therapy research. Chapters cover all the main domains of childhood psychopathology and are authored by a 'who's who' of cognitive-behavioral therapy. The text is very accessible and suitable for undergrads, graduate students, and child psychiatry residents--yet the scope, level of detail, and the references lists are such that seasoned practitioners will also want to have a copy."--John T. Walkup, MD, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
"The question of how to improve on a classic is expertly answered by Kendall and his stellar team of contributors. The fourth edition of Child and Adolescent Therapy
is even more clinician friendly without sacrificing any of the scientific rigor we have come to expect. Chapters have been updated with the latest advances and enhanced clinical examples. This is an ideal text for graduate students learning cognitive-behavioral approaches as well as experienced clinicians looking to expand their knowledge. Set aside space on your bookshelf for this peerless work."--Robert D. Friedberg, PhD, ABPP, Associate Director of Clinical Training, Palo Alto University
"This book continues to set the standard for evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with children and adolescents. Cutting-edge issues and new developments are evident throughout the fourth edition. The stellar group of contributors cover best CBT practices across a wide range of clinical problems and domains. The volume elegantly captures the dynamic integration of cognition, emotion, action, developmental change, social context, and clinical process that characterizes CBT today. The result is an exceptional volume that is current, sophisticated, rigorous, practical, detailed, and engaging, with many case examples and clinical aids. I highly recommend this book both as a reference for mental health professionals who wish to incorporate CBT concepts and procedures into their clinical practice with children and adolescents, and as an invaluable text for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses. Kudos to Kendall for yet another outstanding contribution!"--Eric J. Mash, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Calgary, Canada, and Department of Psychiatry, Oregon Health & Science University
"Broad, scholarly, and practical, this book is an important addition to the literature. From an opening discussion of the critical role of theory in guiding treatment, through in-depth reviews of evidence-based approaches to treating an array of clinical problems, Kendall and his contributing authors provide a masterful review of contemporary CBT with children and adolescents. New material in the fourth edition points toward the future of the field. Maintaining a nearly perfect balance of science and clinical insight, this is a valuable resource for clinicians and clinical researchers and an informative text for students of child psychopathology and child therapy. An exceptional volume."--Mark A. Reinecke, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Northwestern University
"This essential volume appears at a key moment in the field of child and adolescent therapy. As clinical psychology moves toward dissemination of evidence-based practices (EBPs), the fourth edition offers updated, clear, applicable information about EBPs, as well as information on strategies and challenges inherent in transporting EBPs to practicing clinicians. Clinical and school psychologists and others interested in disseminating treatments that work for children and adolescents will find this resource to be invaluable."--Torrey A. Creed, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
"This book covers the most common problems that clinicians will see in their practices. It is easy to read and practical with helpful vignettes that demonstrate how the therapy is applied. The editor is one of the movers and shakers in CBT today. This is a valuable resource for both novice and experienced therapists. This fourth edition has updated chapters and covers new material, such as DBT and mindfulness-based interventions."--Doody's Review Service
"Represents the current state of the art of the theoretical and empirical knowledge base in psychological interventions with youth."--PsycCRITIQUES
"Clinicians, scientists, students, and anyone who has an interest in treating children with serious behavior problems should find this book invaluable as a reference."--Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy
"An excellent text on cognitive-behavioral (CBT) procedures for the most prevalent childhood and adolescent disorders….Written by some of the leading researchers of CBT-based interventions for children and adolescents, the chapters in this book consist entirely of evidence-based practices….Once again, Kendall has compiled an invaluable book that provides an overview of evidence-based CBT practices for a wide range of presenting problems that will appeal to a diverse readership. I would consider this book to be an essential text for any clinician practicing CBT-based therapy for child and adolescents, as well as clinical researchers. For those familiar with CBT principles, this text provides enough information that many interventions could be implemented after review of the resources outlined in each chapter. The interventions are outlined in accessible and easy-to-follow language that makes the chapters approachable for those who may not currently use CBT or those who are new to CBT for children and adolescents. This book would also likely serve as a useful text for graduate-level courses on child and adolescent psychotherapy as well as cognitive-behavioral therapies."--British Journal of Psychology
"Kendall is to be congratulated for bringing us the second edition of this exceptional text. Like the first edition, this volume remains true to its roots in empirically based methods of treatment. There is an intellectual feast here for everyone. Scientists will delight in the comprehensive survey of research on therapies for the major childhood disorders. Clinicians will welcome the thorough coverage of the various scientifically defensible treatments and the research that supports them. And students will find a thorough grounding in the scientist-practitioner approach to interventions for children. Two thumbs way up for this scholarly yet eminently readable work." --Russell A. Barkley, PhD, University of Massachusetts Medical School
"In this revised edition of Child and Adolescent Therapy, Kendall and his colleagues have updated what was already a standard reference. The text addresses such common problems as aggression, ADHD, anxiety disorders, depression, and chronic health problems, covering theory and practical interventions in a developmentally sensitive fashion. Useful for both researchers and clinicians, this volume belongs on the bookshelf of anyone interested in mental health problems in youth." --John S. March, MD, MPH, Department of Psychiatry, Duke University Medical Center
"This is a work of genuine quality, written by a Who's Who of authorities in the field. With coverage of internalizing and externalizing disorders plus chronic health conditions, special attention given to treatment of adolescents, and a careful review of empirically supported treatments, the book is at once a valuable resource for professionals and a first-rate graduate text." --John Weisz, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California at Los Angeles
