In this thoroughly updated third edition, the editors present an extensive range of treatment approaches in which systematic and detailed treatment techniques take precedence over conceptual and theoretical issues in child treatment. Expert chapter authors provide a review of treatment literature and related treatment procedures of childhood disorders most often encountered by individuals who practice in applied settings. Also, the authors use a broad-based orientation in their respective chapters, but take an empirical approach toward inclusion of treatment techniques that have been applied to the disorder. The Practice of Child Therapy, Third Edition, continues to be an outstanding contribution for those who work, or those who intend to work directly in the area of childhood behavior disorders.
