Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1300. Reviews the book, Cognitive-Behavioral Assessment and Therapy with Adolescents by Janet M. Zarb (see record 1992-98759-000). This book is a comprehensive, clinically sophisticated, well-written account of the application of cognitive-behavioral strategies to a wide variety of adolescent behavioral-emotional problems. Not only is the book a treatise on this particular therapeutic approach, but because of its numerous, realistic clinical vignettes and practical, down-to-earth advice about the most commonly encountered adolescent issues, it is also an exemplary text on clinical work with adolescents and their families. In addition to well-known applications of cognitive-behavioral techniques to depression, anxiety, and family conflict, Zarb breaks new ground by creatively synthesizing combinations of these techniques for use with peer and school problems, as well as dysfunctional parenting styles.
