“A welcome update of a seminal work, edited and written by international experts in CBT with children and youth. The strength of the book is its focus on clinical practice—each chapter provides ample material about both the process and content of developmentally and culturally sensitive interventions, brought to life through detailed case examples. Common themes include creative uses of nonverbal methods, parent involvement, the use of behavioral techniques, and how to adapt cognitive work to the developmental level of the child. This book is essential reading for any practicing child mental health professional.”
