An introductory chapter by Ronen provides a useful background based on discipline and developmental stage, detailing age-relevant nuances and treatment principles. Other authors cover issues central to cognitive behavior therapy for children and adolescents (e.g., the common need to meld cognitive behavior therapy with a strong educational component and with family interventions). These are well argued and explicated, and numerous useful clinical strategies are detailed. The topics (e.g., attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety and depression, conduct disorder, learning difficulties, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, eating disorders, and interpersonal and socialization problems) are appropriate. Most authors meet the editorial request for an "intellectually satisfying theoretical framework" and for its evidence base. For one author, however, to state that the "potential" for those with even quite "severe" expressions of a disorder to benefit from cognitive approaches has "been confirmed"—and for the reader then to find that such a definitive statement is referenced to a single 10-year-old conference abstract—does strain credulity. "To your room" would appear a clear, specific, and direct alpha command response.
