“This book can serve as an important text in many graduate programs where individuals are becoming acquainted with different treatment strategies and procedures.”

Child and Family Behavior Therapy

“One of the most useful CBT books for beginning counselors I have ever read. The authors are all highly qualified and experienced….This is a clearly written, easy-to-read manual for beginning therapists….Highly recommended!”

BACP Children and Young People

“This book is written in clinical, yet user-friendly language with clear, concise guidance for implementing each element from start to finish….By any measure it is a smashing success! This book is recognized as the standard-bearer for identifying and explaining the practical application techniques and strategies of the 13 core elements. Nowhere in journal articles, book chapters, or treatment manuals will readers find such a unique compilation. I highly recommend this timely book for all clinicians in training and seasoned mental health professionals as the go-to resource for gaining a sound understanding of the core elements in treating mood and anxiety disorders in children and adolescents. *****!”

Doody's Review Service

“If you had to refer a family member for treatment, wouldn’t you pick a treatment that was known to have the preferred probability of success? The authors of this book have done a beautiful job of extracting the core elements of programs that have been supported by research and explaining their nuts and bolts. An extremely valuable guide for all mental health professionals, this volume merits a round of long and loud applause for its provision of valuable 'how-to' information along with its scholarly selection of core elements.”

“For anyone interested in treatment of internalizing disorders in children and adolescents, this book will be indispensable. Taking on the increasingly voluminous literature on evidence-based treatments, these authors put a new lens on understanding how the best interventions are put together, focusing on the procedures common to a diverse collection of successful approaches. Their analysis of relevant research offers a compelling picture of accumulated knowledge. This is the book I have been waiting for.”

—Bruce F. Chorpita, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles; President, PracticeWise

“Nangle and colleagues have crafted a beautifully written work that integrates theory, research, and clinical practice in a most inviting manner. This invaluable book is sure to propel dissemination of evidence-based procedures, since it distills core elements of the best protocols into readily applicable 'golden nuggets' that anyone who works with children and adolescents will welcome. The text boxes, task analyses, and case illustrations augment what is already robust material. An indispensable clinical resource.”

—Robert D. Friedberg, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director, Center for the Study and Treatment of Anxious Youth, Palo Alto University

“Nangle et al. score big—really big—with this volume. For the first time ever, the theoretical underpinnings, evidence base, and clinical utility of the key ingredients in the treatment of internalizing disorders in children and adolescents are explored in detail. Many research articles, chapters, and manuals describe these core elements, but only in a cursory, superficial fashion. By contrast, this book brings the techniques to life by providing step-by-step suggestions for their implementation and evaluation. It will become standard fare for training programs in clinical child and adolescent psychology and psychiatry, as well as for professionals. This is a book whose time has surely come.”
