Clinical Handbook of Psychological Disorders in Youth synthesizes current research on evidence-based child and adolescent treatment into a practical handbook for students and clinicians, covering assessment, diagnosis, case formulation, with examples.

A comprehensive, accessible resource. 

Christopher A. Flessner and John C. Piacentini

Bringing together leading authorities, this volume synthesizes the breadth of current research, on child and adolescent treatment, into a practical handbook for students and clinicians.  Inspired by the preeminent work on adult disorders, this handbook provides a concise overview of the disorders most commonly encountered in clinical practice.  It details evidence-based treatment approaches, largely grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). 

Procedures for assessment, diagnosis, case formulation, intervention and progress monitoring are illustrated with rich, extended case examples, including session transcripts.  The book addresses “nuts and bolts” issues, such as how to set up each session, what to cover, and how to broach difficult topics with children and parents.

Hardcover; 578 pages.
