'… impressive … this book is likely to be read and consulted widely by those engaged, or training in, child clinical psychology and psychiatry.' Behaviour Research and Therapy

'… recognising the growth of knowledge and importance of the topics covered, I have certainly come down strongly in favour of this book, and it easily passes the test in being an important addition to the literature.' Primary Care & Community Psychiatry

'This extensively updated second edition is very welcome and I know it was eagerly awaited by CBT practitioners. I really do like the balance of theory, evidence for theory and practice, practice tips and worked examples showing how to apply the treatment in real life. … I highly recommend this book, to any student, be they new to the field or experienced practitioners of child and adolescent mental health who want a grasp of contemporary CBT in CAMHS. It is a worthy successor to the first edition and should become a core text in most clinic libraries.' Psychological Medicine
