Drs Alan Kazdin of the Yale Child Study Center, New Haven, Conn, and John Weisz of the University of California at Los Angeles have compiled a practical resource outlining evidence-based treatments for childhood disorders. Chapters written by expert psychotherapy researchers on a wide range of clinical problems, including anxiety disorders, depression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, oppositional and antisocial behaviors, eating disorders, and enuresis, detail the theoretical background underlying each intervention, the empirical evidence, and the specifics of treatment delivery. This book serves as an excellent resource for clinicians looking to bolster their clinical practice using empirically based techniques, as well as clinical researchers seeking an overview of issues involved in treatment-outcome research.
