Every day, millions of children experience serious mental health issues, such as symptoms related to autism, psychosis, mania, depression, and anxiety. Moreover, many youth struggle with issues related to trauma, eating, sleep, disruptive behaviour, and substance use. Most of these youth do not receive evidence-based treatments. Instead, they commonly receive untested, ineffective, and even harmful treatments.

Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy presents the research-supported treatment packages and their individual components for every major mental health issue facing infants, children, and adolescents. Each chapter also identifies and analyses other variables and resources that influence treatment: parents, assessment, comorbidity, demographics and medication. Useful resources are included for each mental health issued covered in the book. The chapters are organised in the same order as they appear in the DSM-5.

  • Presents all of the individual components and variables that influence treatment
  • The chapters are organised in the same order as they appear in the DSM-5
  • Resources, including relevant books and websites, are offered for each chapter and treatment
  • The book is a companion to Pseudoscience in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy
