"Whilst I see this book of particular use to anyone doing research into the subject of anxiety and depression in adults and children, it will be a useful resource for a variety of people in the caring professions including counsellors and psychotherapists." --Donald Calder in Counselling "This is a collection of papers by well-respected researchers in this growing field. It is a book for the specialist rather than the jobbing child psychiatrist or psychologist but a useful reference text nevertheless." --Alison Wood in ACCP Child Psychology & Psychiatry Review "This book certainly does bring together disparate areas of research and integrates them in an informative and interesting way. It will be particularly valuable for clinicians interested in child and adolescent depressive and anxiety disorders, since it includes a lot of material from work with adults that is often hard for such clinicians to assess. A very useful addition to the library." --H. C. Steinhausen in European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Written by the foremost theorists and practitioners in the field, this cohesive study focuses on recent advances in treating anxiety and depression in adults and children. A range of topics are covered including self-management therapy, assessing and treating sexually abused children, and unipolar depression. Published in the Banff International Behavioral Science Series, this volume integrates empirical research with clinical applications. Case examples and exercises are used throughout to illustrate important clinical concepts. Among the other topics covered are emotional processing in anxiety disorders, psychotherapies for depression, cognition in depression and anxiety, and phobic disorders in children. Practitioners, advanced students, and researchers in clinical and counseling psychology, developmental psychology, social work, interpersonal violence, and psychiatric nursing will find this an excellent resource.
