"Dr. Manassis scores REALLY big with this second edition. Based on her years of clinical experience, she focuses this edition around problem in implementing evidence-based CBT practices in community settings. She cautions against mindless use of manuals and calls for sound clinical judgment in everyday clinical practice and helps us decide what to do when manuals are not available and the evidence is lacking. Yet, throughout, she stays the course and brings the principles and procedures of CBT "to the street" where they are so desperately needed. Those who liked the first edition of this book will simply love the second edition. Those who did not see the first edition are in for a REAL treat. Evidence-based clinical practice is brought to life in this one!"- Thomas H. Ollendick, PhD, is University Distinguished Professor and Director of the Child Study Center at Virginia Tech, co-author of Clinical Behavior Therapy with Children, and co-editor of Diagnostic and Behavioral Assessment: A Clinical Guide.
"Supported by her years of scientific research and her wealth of personal clinical experience, Dr. Manassis provides the practicing therapist with the tools and examples to take well validated scientific principles and apply them with the client in the opposite chair. This book is a boon to the community practitioner working with young people."-Ronald M. Rapee, is Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the Centre for Emotional Health at Macquarie University, Sydney.
