"McClure and Teyber have written an excellent casebook that analyzes mental health problems that children and adolescents may experience. Importantly, the analysis is embedded within a cultural context. The casebook reviews symptoms and causes of disorders and then presents cases that illustrate key points in the discussion. The cases are explored with depth, and the rationale for using certain treatment strategies are thoughtfully discussed within a cultural context. This book is a valuable contribution and should be read by mental health professionals as well as advanced undergraduates or graduate students in the helping professions."
"This book speaks to real-life problems experienced by children and adolescents today, problems that are serious, complex, and challenging to talented, seasoned counselors. It provides an in-depth discussion of intervention techniques, including scripts of important exchanges between the counselor and client. Each chapter contains detailed background information about the crisis category of interest and the pertinent multicultural issues that apply, thus providing the context in which the interventions can be better understood."
