State-of-the-art interventions for every problem

Over the past decade, dozens of new interventions have been developed to treat child and adolescent psychopathologies. Comprehensive Evidence-Based Interventions for Children and Adolescents is a guide to the theory and practice of both established and emerging interventions. To make the right treatment decision for each unique case, clinicians need to consider all the relevant possibilities. This book contains theoretical and practical information about well-established treatment modalities in addition to newer approaches that have been approved by the APA.

With chapters on the clinical and contextual factors that affect the selection of specific interventions, this book is the most complete resource available to professionals who work with adolescents and children. The editors have included chapters addressing broad issues of treatment context, including ethical, multicultural, and computer-assisted treatment. These will help guide practitioners in the right direction, no matter what the treatment setting. Other texts shy away from discussing the use of controversial therapies and new delivery methods, but clinical professionals must have a thorough understanding of the available evidence in order to make the best possible decisions. Each chapter includes:

  • Clear overviews of disorders
  • A range of evidence-based approaches for each problem
  • Discussions of parental involvement in treatment
  • Suggestions for adapting and modifying interventions
  • Treatment evaluation criteria
  • Clinical case examples

Comprehensive Evidence-Based Interventions for Children and Adolescents will be an invaluable resource for all clinical psychology professionals who work with youth populations.


This book is designed to provide mental health professionals with the information they need about the use of evidence-based interventions (EBIs), as well as the evaluation criteria used to determine their efficacy in meeting the mental health needs of children. In addition to specific state-of-the-art treatments, this book includes chapters on the fundamental role of development in treatment planning and implementation, emerging methods of service delivery for improving access to mental health care, dissemination of EBIs into community and school settings, and the use of potentially harmful therapies with children.


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 childrenclinical psychologists, child psychiatrists, clinical social workers, school psychologists, and marriage and family therapiststhis 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.
