Editorial Reviews

Review

"I was thoroughly impressed ... provides a good insight to the rationales and indications for different therapies for different child mental health presentations." (Community Care, July 2006)

From the Back Cover

A comprehensive introduction to the theory, research, and practice of child and adolescent therapy

Child and Adolescent Therapy: Science and Art equips today's therapists with the current theory, research, and techniques of psychotherapy with these special client groups. With coverage of major theories alongside their associated therapeutic interventions and techniques, this comprehensive resource brings both academic rigor and on-the-ground experience to bear on such approaches as:

  • Behavior therapy
  • Constructivism—solution-oriented and narrative therapy
  • Cognitive therapy
  • Family systems therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Atheoretical and transtheoretical techniques

Along with different approaches, the text discusses outcome research and other clinical considerations that guide practitioners in creating the best possible treatment plans for individual clients. The overall tone of this handbook is informal and approachable—like the voice of an effective therapist—with frequent specific examples of what to say, who to say it to, and when to say it.

Bringing the science and art of therapy together in an innovative and up-to-date guide, Child and Adolescent Therapy offers an invaluable resource for both clinicians in training and skilled practitioners looking for new ideas and techniques.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jen Kogos Youngstrom on June 17, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This book is by far the most comprehensive and useful child therapy text. It is thorough yet concise on many child therapy topics. It is supremely helpful for new clinical graduate students and as an outstanding broad and detailed review for clinicians and researchers. We used this book as a text in child didactic therapy practicum course, and all the students and professor found the chapters informative and a pleasure to read. The book includes careful, comprehensive reviews of outcome research along with insightful guidance about combining research findings and clinical reasoning to individualize therapy for each client.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Sunny K. Lurie on May 26, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I found the book to be very clear and comprehensive, covering the main theoretical orientations and the common diagnostic categories. It integrates the science and art of therapy by providing user-friendly summaries of outcome research with clinically practical instruction in how to work with kids. The critical case materials and examples of therapeutically useful words to use with children in a variety of clinical situations are very helpful. I was pleased by the lively and interesting writing and inspired by the satisfaction that can be achieved in this work.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I found the book very helpful. I teach children who are emotionally handicapped and my job is half teaching and half therapist at times. This book gave me insights into the counseling side of working with my students and gave me several ideas how I can do my job a bit better. I would recommend this book.
