“This workbook is excellent because it contains so much practical information for clinicians to use when addressing anxiety and depression in children and adolescents. The handouts and worksheets are wonderful tools to use with clients.”

Doody's Review Service (review by Gary B. Kaniuk, PsyD)

“There is much to recommend this outstanding clinical resource. Chu and Pimentel’s theoretical sophistication, scientific mindedness, and clinical virtuosity shine through every page! Their savvy approach to clinical problems is presented in a compelling, engaging, creative, and accessible way. Practical worksheets, figures, and tables are certain to catalyze clinicians’ practices. I found learning from these CBT pros not only enlightening but also hugely enjoyable. I am certain you will too!”

Child and Family Behavior Therapy

“Chu and Pimentel score big on this one—very big. The authors' rich theoretical background and their equally rich clinical acumen come together seamlessly. The volume nicely interweaves CBT case formulation, assessment, and treatment practices, via detailed case studies. This is a book that belongs in all graduate training programs that espouse evidence-based practice, and in the hands of all clinicians who work with children and adolescents and their families. It not only will guide current practice, but also will advance the next generation of clinical practice and research. This is a most welcome book whose time has come!”

—Thomas H. Ollendick, PhD, University Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Virginia Tech

“Responding to real-world questions expressed by trainees and practitioners, Chu and Pimentel provide well-informed answers on just how to implement CBT for anxious and depressed youth. Filled with relevant examples, this book will be of great value to mental health practitioners and trainees. In a highly readable fashion, the authors disentangle the complexities of CBT into basic parts and present principle-based guidance for implementation. Highly recommended for all mental health professionals working with youth with emotional challenges.”

—Philip C. Kendall, PhD, ABPP, Distinguished University Professor and Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, Temple University

“Chu and Pimentel are consummate clinicians, educators, and researchers. Their expertise in treating youth with internalizing disorders shines forth in this pragmatic guide. Therapists in training as well as early career and experienced therapists all will benefit from this book's clear explanation of CBT: what it is (and is not), and how it can be flexibly applied. The book includes clinically rich vignettes and 'tools of the trade,' such as helpful worksheets and handouts for use with children and families. I will be using my copy in both supervision and clinical practice!”
