This authoritative volume describes effective cognitive-behavioral approaches to a range of frequently encountered child and adolescent disorders. The book begins with a guiding model for conducting multifaceted treatment that is sensitive to individual and developmental concerns. Chapters by leading clinician-researchers then address specific behavioral and emotional problems, including aggression, anger, ADHD, depression, anxiety disorders, and difficulties faced by children with chronic health conditions. Providing a practical overview of salient clinical techniques, each up-to-date chapter summarizes related literature and considers future directions for research and practice. Also examined are developmental issues specific to work with adolescents and the current status of empirically supported interventions.

"This book provides comprehensive coverage of contemporary behavioral assessment concepts and methods for persons working in the schools. Especially appealing is the book's clear organization, based on the conceptual framework delineated in the initial chapter. The use of the 'directness continuum' to order the chapters is a logically compelling and pedagogically useful strategy. Offering an up-to-date treatment of the field, the book's coverage includes functional analysis as well as issues related to assessing ethnic and linguistic minority children. It is consistently practical, including many case examples and samples of useful instruments and forms." John D. Cone, PhD, Department of Psychology, United States International University, San Diego, CA
