Effects of Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents

Effects of Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents

February 1993 | 136 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
In Effects of Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents, the authors provide an authoritative overview of the practice and study of child and adolescent psychotherapy. Research findings on the effects of child psychotherapy are pooled through the use of meta-analytic procedures and then analyzed and summarized by the authors. They discuss methods for increasing the effectiveness of everyday therapy and offer suggestions for future research. "This short book should be carefully read and its message thoroughly internalized by every professional who is involved in any way in either deciding about therapy for a child, vending or providing therapy for children, evaluating therapy for children, and imposing therapy on children." --Issues in Child Abuse Accusations "Overall, the book is an excellent orientation to the question of the effectiveness of psychological interventions for children and provides a good set of directions for future research. Although most of the material is available elsewhere in the form of individual articles, this highly accessible comparison and synthesis of outcomes is worthwhile reading for practicing clinicians and researchers alike. . . . The book would be a very suitable introduction to questions concerning the efficacy of therapy for children and adolescents. It should be essential reading for clinicians in training who plan to work with children, and is a useful integration of the research literature for researchers and practitioners as well." --Contemporary Psychology
