Summary

This book is designed to provide mental health professionals with the information they need about the use of evidence-based interventions (EBIs), as well as the evaluation criteria used to determine their efficacy in meeting the mental health needs of children. In addition to specific state-of-the-art treatments, this book includes chapters on the fundamental role of development in treatment planning and implementation, emerging methods of service delivery for improving access to mental health care, dissemination of EBIs into community and school settings, and the use of potentially harmful therapies with children.
