This book forms a complete guide to evidence based interventions for children and adolescents. The past decade has witnessed the development of numerous interventions proved to be highly effective; several treatments are now considered to be well established or probably efficacious interventions for children. Given the range of providers working with children-clinical psychologists, child psychiatrists, clinical social workers, school psychologists, and marriage and family therapists-this book is designed to provide all professionals the information they now need about the use of these evidence-based interventions (EBIs), as well as the evaluation criteria used to determine their efficacy in in meeting the mental health needs of children.

Alfano and Beidel have assembled a team of experts to write the disorder chapters. Each chapter begins with an overview of the disorder then delves into evidence-based approaches to treatment, the impact of parental involvement, case-by-case modifications, progress measurement, and clinical examples. In overview chapters the editors cover: the role of development in treatment planning and implementation; dissemination of EBIs into school and community settings; the use of controversial therapies with children; emerging methods of service delivery and access improvement. Comprehensive Evidence Based Interventions for Children and Adolescents provides clinicians, researchers, and students alike with the theoretical, conceptual, and practical skills to provide children and adolescents with the best care possible.
