Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(11), 1219–1220. Reviews the book, Child and Adolescent Therapy: Cognitive-Behavioural Procedures edited by Philip C. Kendall (1991). Kendall has succeeded in combining in one volume an integrative, comprehensive, and scholarly review of cognitive behavioral interventions with children and adolescents. Each chapter in the two major sections of the book focuses on a specific clinical population (e.g., aggression, depression, and learning disabilities) and is authored by scholars widely recognized for their expertise in applying cognitive-behavioral procedures to that clinical population. The volume is a testament to the maturity of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). Although most of the chapters include statements regarding the importance of family influences on the development of disorders and of the need to include families in therapy, the chapters vary in the degree to which they integrate family-focused interventions with child-focused, coping-skills interventions.
