Bruce F. Chorpita, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Hawaii, Honolulu, HI, USA


'Dr. Chorpita's use of treatment modules applied through detailed individual formulations is a revolutionary development in the management of childhood anxiety disorders. It combines the best of both worlds, as a clear manualized treatment with scope for individual application. Add to this Dr Chorpita's years of clinical experience, his humane and humorous writing style, and the practical applications and illuminating examples, and this book becomes essential reading for any therapist who works with anxious children and their families.' - Ronald M. Rapee, PhD, Department of Psychology, Macquarie University, Australia 'This remarkable volume marks the beginning of a major shift in the field of psychotherapy research and treatment, not just for childhood anxiety disorders, but for all mental disorders. Chorpita's modular approach is highly intelligent, clinically savvy, and eminently feasible. If this approach can be applied across the range of mental conditions that therapists try to treat, it has the potential to move psychotherapy practice and training to much higher scientific ground. This book is clinically rich and very well written. It should be required reading for all who would offer effective psychotherapy to children, and is a 'must' for psychotherapy training programs.' - Peter S. Jensen, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Center for the Advancement of Children's Mental Health, Columbia University, USA 'This book is the ideal entry point to evidence-based treatment for clinicians who have been reluctant to adopt manualized approaches. It is also a wonderful teaching tool. Chorpita not only presents background information and tools for cognitive-behavioral treatment of childhood anxiety disorders, but he also takes into account the roadblocks clinicians frequently encounter. He includes modules addressing disruptive behavior, parent behaviors interfering with progress, depression, poor motivation, and social skills deficits, to be used as needed in the service of facilitating anxiety treatment. This book advances the field in presenting an established treatment together with flexible solutions to real-world clinical challenges.' - Margo Thienemann, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Stanford University, USA
