Reviews and Endorsements

"In its fourth edition, this book remains the authoritative, scholarly, foundational volume that is a 'must read' for all child and adolescent mental health trainees, clinicians, and investigators. The editors and contributors, all leaders in their respective areas, ground the reader in the richly sourced science supporting evidence-based treatments. Compelling guides for applying treatment for specific disorders are brought to life through detailed descriptions of the components and course of therapy, and reinforced with engaging clinical case examples. Joined by Prinstein and Youngstrom, Mash and Barkley carry forward their tradition of excellence."- Anne Marie Albano, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University Medical Center; Director, Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders

"This fourth edition promises to become a mainstay of graduate instruction for years to come. The text provides a definitive look into the current evidence base of treatments for children and adolescents. Each chapter provides a window into the next steps of treatment research for specific mental health domains, and how this research intersects with emerging transdiagnostic perspectives. Students exposed to this text will come out with a firm understanding of where the field stands and where it ought to proceed." - Andres De Los Reyes, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Maryland, College Park.

"Prinstein, Youngstrom, Mash, and Barkley score big on the fourth edition of this text, which has become the classic in the field over the past 30 years. Eminent scholars weave interesting and intricate descriptions of various clinical problems together with developmentally sensitive, evidence-based treatments. The fourth edition includes discussions of DSM-5, ICD-11, and NIMH's Research Domain Criteria (RDoC). It will go a long way to bridge the gap between science and practice and to reduce the burden of mental health problems for youth, their families, and our society. Students and mental health professionals from diverse backgrounds will benefit from this stimulating, up-to-date, and comprehensive volume." - Thomas H. Ollendick, PhD, ABPP, University Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychology, Virginia Tech.

"This volume is a fresh update on the classic text that I have used for decades, first as a student and then as a professor. The editors have assembled many of the world's leading researchers in child and adolescent intervention, whose contributions have the depth, clarity, and timeliness that have characterized each edition of this work. The book goes beyond a mere description of intervention approaches--it incorporates a strong developmental psychopathology perspective, integrates widely used standards for strength of evidence, and synthesizes symptom-based and RDoC perspectives. It is essential reading for anyone seeking to build expertise in evidence-based treatment for child and adolescent mental health concerns." - Bruce F. Chorpita, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles; President, PracticeWise.

"The editors have hit an absolute home run with this major update of an already classic handbook. They have assembled a veritable 'who's who' of leading authorities to present cutting-edge, developmentally tailored, and evidence-based approaches to the treatment of child mental health problems. This terrific fourth edition expands on previous editions to reflect the many groundbreaking advances and critical new areas of study in the field. It retains the very successful structure and accessibility that have been so enthusiastically embraced by students and instructors over the years. For trainees and seasoned clinicians alike, this text is truly indispensable." - Jonathan Comer, PhD, Department of Psychology, Florida International University.

"The fourth edition of this text provides comprehensive coverage of evidence-based treatments for children and adolescents. This edition addresses contemporary issues such as transdiagnostic considerations, the RDoC framework, and interdisciplinary perspectives. I applaud the editors and contributors for making the content accessible via sample therapy transcripts, tables highlighting key aspects of therapy, and suggestions for tailoring treatments. I enthusiastically recommend this book for doctoral-level coursework balancing research and application in child and adolescent therapy." - Lindsey L. Cohen, PhD, Distinguished University Professor, Department of Psychology, Georgia State University.

"The fourth edition of this excellent, practical work reviews the state of the art of psychosocial treatments for pediatric psychiatric conditions. The text considers developmental and cultural issues, DSM and ICD categorization of disorders, and dimensional psychopathology. It also addresses treatment of conditions that cut across disorders, such as suicidality, abuse, and sleep problems. This is a wonderful reference and teaching tool for all levels of clinicians dedicated to improving the lives of children with mental health disorders." - Boris Birmaher, MD, Endowed Chair in Early Onset Bipolar Disease and Professor of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
