  • Transdiagnostic Treatments for Children and Adolescents

447 pages
ISBN: 9781462512669

This volume presents cutting-edge advances in case conceptualisation and intervention for children and adolescents, who typically present for mental health treatment with multiple, overlapping problems. Leading clinician-researchers examine common processes; including stress and coping, attention and interpretation biases, avoidant behaviours, and peer and family interactions; that underlie the development and maintenance of diverse forms of psychopathology. They describe exemplary treatments that target these processes and can be used across diagnostic categories.

Chapters on specific treatment protocols address the theoretical foundations, clinical strategies used, which patient populations each treatment is suitable for, and the status of the empirical evidence base.

"Everybody knows that a dimensional transdiagnostic approach to understanding and treating psychopathology is the wave of the future, but there are few guides on how to get there. Ehrenreich-May and ChuÑtwo of the leading young clinical scientists in child mental healthÑhave edited a groundbreaking book that leads the way to the transdiagnostic future. Whether you're interested in the nature and assessment of psychopathology or its treatment, every child clinician and researcher should be familiar with the contents of this book."
- David H Barlow, ABPP, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, Boston University, and Founder and Director Emeritus, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders

"Drawing on empirical research and the collective wisdom of experts in the field, this book presents the state of the art of transdiagnostic approaches in child and adolescent psychopathology. This volume is a vital resource for mental health professionals and graduate students who seek a deeper understanding of the factors shaping many different forms of youth psychopathology, and how these factors can be effectively targeted during treatment."
- Steve Taylor, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, Canada

"Published in the wake of DSM-5, this timely and valuable resource provides the first comprehensive extension of the transdiagnostic perspective to child and adolescent mental health. The volume brings together the foremost experts in transdiagnostic processes and developmental psychopathology. Chapters are packed with new findings on the underlying mechanisms common across childhood and youth disorders, as well as refreshing insights into treatment. For those longing for an alternative to DSM-driven psychotherapy, this cutting-edge book is a 'must read.'"
