Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Children Treating Complex and Refractory Cases (Hardcover)
This book brings together well-renown experts in the treatment of psychological conditions in children and adolescents. Each chapter includes a description of currently available empirically supported cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) interventions, factors that would limit outcome in therapy, a case illustration that highlights the prognostic indicators that would interfere with treatment outcome, and guidelines on managing these specific limiting conditions. The contributors also discuss conditions that have typically been associated with poorer outcome.
