Review:

"Weisz and Kazdin are the accepted world leaders in the field of evidence-based psychotherapies for young people, and their book is essential reading. The third edition differs from its predecessors in being substantially broader in scope and in the depth of evidence considered. The book is particularly distinctive in its critical appraisal of the challenges that lie ahead--for example, the need for a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in young people’s treatment responses, and the fact that most of the randomized controlled trials do not include multifaceted disorders. Although the issues concerned are quite tricky, the writing style is smooth and easy to follow. Anyone interested in the topic will both enjoy reading this book and learn a great deal from it."--Michael Rutter, MD, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College London, United Kingdom

“Weisz and Kazdin--two of the field's most original and influential scholars--show how science can be leveraged with innovativeness and rigor to improve the lives of children and adolescents who suffer from psychological disorders. The contributors include many pioneers in developing and testing evidence-based psychotherapies, who write with great wisdom. Thirty-three chapters provide a perfect balance between the present status of the scientific evidence and clinical applications, and identify critical future directions for the field. A 'must-have' book for instructors, students, clinicians, and researchers."--Wendy K. Silverman, PhD, ABPP, Alfred A. Messer Professor of Child Psychiatry, Professor of Psychology, and Director, Anxiety and Mood Disorders Program, Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine

"The biggest question facing today's psychotherapists and psychotherapy researchers is how to personalize evidence-based psychotherapy using the available selection of treatment and monitoring tools. This holds true for child and adolescent as well as adult psychotherapy. I cannot imagine a better resource for tackling this task than this outstanding book. Comprehensive and fun to read, it helps move the practice of child and adolescent psychotherapy forward. As a text, it is a rich resource for courses on child and adolescent treatment."--Wolfgang Lutz, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Trier, Germany

"Nobody understands evidence-based practices for children and adolescents--their development, evaluation, and implementation, as well as their strengths and limitations--with the depth and breadth of Weisz and Kazdin. The third edition has thorough coverage of almost all problems confronting clinicians and a very important section on implementing evidence-based interventions in a variety of clinical settings. Every clinician and clinical scientist will want this definitive resource on their bookshelves, and instructors will find it ideal for graduate courses covering psychological interventions."--David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry and Founder and Director Emeritus, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University
