Treating Childhood Behavioral and Emotional Problems: A Step-by-Step, Evidence-Based Approach

Edited by Andrew R. Eisen
The Guilford Press
427 pages. $50 hardcover or e-book.

In this first clinician training manual to be organized according to symptoms, such as inattentiveness or obsessive thoughts, chapters describe various disorders with symptoms that often overlap. Each chapter follows an actual case from assessment to diagnosis, treatment choice and process.

For example, “Seeking Safety” portrays 6-year-old Julie, who resists separation from her father. Julie’s separation anxiety is mixed with other anxieties, obsessive-compulsive symptoms and defiant behavior. Amid counselor instructions for each step of parent-child interaction therapy, descriptions of sessions with Julie and her parents include their dialogue, skill learning and success as Julie tolerates increasing separation from her father.

Contributors are 24 expert clinicians and scholars who cover panic, post-traumatic stress, bipolar, eating, sleep and attention-deficit disorders and more. Students and mental health professionals working with children and adolescents can integrate the book’s practices with their own treatment approaches. (800) 365-7006,
