Effects of Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents



March 1993 | 136 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The effectiveness of psychotherapy with children and adolescents is discussed in this provocative volume, which is essential reading for a wide range of mental health practitioners. Issues discussed include: who drops out and who stays in treatment; clinic- and community-based therapy; conditions that maximize therapy effects; and whether the effects of therapy differ with child age or gender, therapist level of experience or variations in therapeutic method.

The authors provide an authoritative overview of both research and practice. Research findings on the effects of child psychotherapy are examined and summarized by the authors. They then discuss methods for increasing the effectiveness of psychotherapy with the population under review and offer suggestions for future research.
