Psychosocial Treatment for Child and Adolescent Disorders was written for practitioners, treatment researchers, students, health care administrators, and others who make decisions about mental health services for children and adolescents. In reporting their research, the chapter authors have tried to bridge the gap between researchers and practitioners by describing their treatment strategies, by presenting these treatments in their environmental and theoretical contexts, and by making available source information on the manuals and guidelines that will help practitioners to translate research interventions into practice strategies. Outcome data are provided, and authors discuss the limitations, issues of generalizability, and future directions of the research and practice in their areas.
