“Flessner and Piacentini have recruited some of the most prominent experts in the world for a superb volume covering the most common psychological disorders and problems in children and adolescents. The originators of important treatment approaches describe their protocols step by step. Like my own (adult-focused) Clinical Handbook of Psychological Disorders, this volume was motivated by countless clinical psychology graduate students, psychiatric residents, and other mental health professionals, either in training or in practice, asking: 'But how do I do it?' This is an essential text for instructors of evidence-based practices, as well as clinicians treating children and adolescents.”

—David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Psychiatry and Founder, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University

“The editors and contributors are experts who have done a masterful job of translating evidence-based research into clear guidelines for clinical work. Chapters provide concise, clinician-friendly overviews of the psychological problems of youth, together with detailed descriptions of treatments that work. Sample dialogues illustrate core components of the interventions. The content is state of the art (and science), making this a valuable reference for therapists, researchers, and students.”

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

“Finally, a book on treating child and adolescent psychological and psychiatric disorders that is at once deeply theoretical and eminently practical. Flessner and Piacentini's volume is a 'must have' for clinicians of all disciplines, as each chapter not only lays out the evidence-based treatments for a particular condition or problem, but also shows how to deliver the treatment in question. There's no book like it in child and adolescent mental health; it will be especially useful for graduate and professional training courses. Highly recommended.”

—Stephen P. Hinshaw, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley; Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco

“A critical contribution to the field. The editors have recruited foremost authorities on evidence-based psychotherapy. Each elegantly structured chapter provides a clear description of the problem, reviews established and promising assessment and treatment protocols, and outlines step-by-step interventions in easily digestible and executable modules, illustrated with sample transcripts and case vignettes. The book provides needed guidance for the everyday practitioner who is managing an ever-more diverse and complicated caseload.”

—Brian C. Chu, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

“A comprehensive, accessible resource. Contributors provide important information on assessment and intervention for the full continuum of childhood psychological and behavioral disorders. The volume covers presenting problems with strong research literature (such as anxiety disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder, and disruptive behavior disorders) as well as those with a developing literature base (such as posttraumatic stress disorder and bipolar disorder). Presenting developmentally appropriate, evidence-based interventions, this handbook will be invaluable for trainees, rising professionals, and established clinicians.”

—Michael C. Roberts, PhD, ABPP, Professor, Clinical Child Psychology Program, and Dean of Graduate Studies, University of Kansas

“This book combines critical reviews of contemporary treatments with specific treatment recommendations. It covers the child and adolescent disorders most likely to be encountered by clinicians. I use this text in my graduate-level child and adolescent psychotherapy course and recommend it both for trainees and for seasoned clinicians who wish to remain up to date.”
