The second edition of Psychosocial Treatments for Child and Adolescent Disorders amplifies and refines the material presented in the first.

About four million children and adolescents in the United States suffer from some type of emotional, behavioral, or developmental disorder. While hundreds of treatments are used with this population, few of them have been empirically validated. This volume describes the empirically supported treatments for the major mental disorders encountered in practice for children and adolescents, such as anxiety, affective, attention deficit, autistic, and conduct disorders. The last section of the book deals with treatments not specific to a disorder, such as trauma-focused cognitive–behavioral therapy for sexually abused children.

A key aim of the editors is to improve the communication gap between the clinical investigators and the practitioners who work with this group.

Hibbs and Jensen have included chapters by several new authors in this edition, while remaining chapters have been updated and extensively revised.
