This unique book presents a research-based approach to understanding the challenges of separation anxiety and helping children, adolescents, and their parents build the skills they need to overcome it. The authors provide step-by-step guidelines for implementing the entire process of therapy--from intake and assessment through coping skills training, cognitive-behavioral interventions, and relapse prevention. Featuring in-depth case examples, the book is written for maximum accessibility for all clinicians, including those with limited cognitive-behavioral therapy experience, who treat separation anxiety and other childhood anxiety disorders. Useful reproducibles include the Separation Anxiety Assessment Scales, which facilitate individualized case formulation and treatment planning.

Review:

"Eisen and Schaefer have produced a near-perfect treatment manual for intervention with separation and related anxiety disorders. They take empirically validated approaches and show how to apply them to real, everyday cases, and successfully adapt them to the individual child, presenting problem, and family context. This book beautifully achieves the oft-sought melding of research-based knowledge and clinical expertise."--Cecil R. Reynolds, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, Texas A&M University

"Drs. Eisen and Schaefer are clearly world leaders in knowledge about separation anxiety in children and adolescents. In this volume they share their decades of combined knowledge in a clear, easy-to-follow format that will be welcomed by therapists and school-based professionals. The detailed case descriptions and practical handouts will allow any qualified practitioner to implement an empirically validated treatment for young people suffering separation fears."--Ronald M. Rapee, PhD, Macquarie University Anxiety Research Unit, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia

"The synergy of Drs. Eisen and Schaefer's collective experience in child therapy and anxiety disorders is evident in this informative, scholarly, and practical guide. The authors' prescriptive approach optimizes treatment response by providing the practitioner with the tools to identify symptom clusters that are then matched to specific treatment strategies with proven efficacy. Practitioners will find a wealth of information here to guide their treatment planning for children and youth with separation anxiety."--Anne Marie Albano, PhD, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Columbia University


"Rarely has a book achieved this perfect blend of research and practice. This is truly the epitome of evidence-based practice. The authors have taken the very real and difficult problem of separation anxiety and provided the reader with an excellent manual for assessment and integrated treatment....What I found most informative was the blending of different therapeutic techniques." (PsycCRITIQUES 2007-02-15)

"This is an excellent resource for the office-based practitioner working with anxious youth and their parents. Refreshingly, the authors do not embrace the medical model, and place a higher value on skill acquisition and problem mastery than on symptom relief using medications." (American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry Newsletter 2007-02-15)
