It explains the fundamentals of cognitive-behavioral intervention and reviews exemplary programs that offer powerful new ways to reach at-risk children and adolescents. Leading authorities thoroughly describe the process of assessment, treatment planning, implementation, and program evaluation.

"The editors are very successful in organizing this book so that it covers assessment, implementation, and evaluation for the range of students who have an emotional and behavioral disorder (EBD) and are entitled to an education in a school setting....A strength of this book is that interventions are looked at within the three-tier model, which includes universal or preventive interventions for students at risk as well as interventions at the secondary tiers....I would highly recommend this book because it combines the effective ''clinical'' and school-based interventions. After reading the text and looking at the charts, cited research studies, and bibliography, the school social worker can learn a multitude of ways of working with individuals, groups, classrooms, and parents in a school-based setting."--School Social Work Journal
Reviewer:This book certainly provides a thorough and relevant review of the literature on cognitive behavioral interventions with children. The integration and execution of these approaches in the classroom needs improvement, but the absolute paucity of figures and summary tables is a glaring blunder.
Purpose:Cognitive behavioral therapy has become a widely studied and clinically applied treatment approach. There have been many variations of this general approach for specific populations, and this book takes a look at cognitive behavioral approaches for students.
Audience:The purpose is to provide an interdisciplinary state-of-the-science guide to cognitive behavioral approaches and their integration into the classroom.
Features:According to the editors, this book will appeal to child clinical psychologists, school psychologists, counselors, and special educators. The editors and contributing authors are well published in school psychology.
Assessment:The first two chapters provide a historical overview and an introduction to cognitive behavioral approaches within a developmental framework. The third chapter covers methodological issues, but these are rather general with few specific examples regarding CBT treatments in the school. The middle section is devoted to specific interventions for particular disorders. These chapters cover outcome research on a multitude of approaches, but there are no figures and few tables to summarize the data. Additionally, there are multiple chapters devoted to anxiety and depression, but they are redundant, especially the two on depression. The information is largely directed towards a review of the literature rather than on specifics of the treatments themselves. Readers interested in learning about the implementation of a specific intervention will need to seek other resources. On the up side, the references are plentiful and current and there is a reasonable index.
