The book begins with important coverage of basic knowledge relative to all diagnoses, including the history of CBT, the CBT model, developmental and cultural considerations, case formulation, combination approaches in treatment for youths (medication and CBT), and myths or inaccuracies regarding CBT. However, the book also provides a diagnostic and problem-based approach covering the major diagnostic groups for whom CBT is indicated. Chapters include valuable information on treating depression and suicide, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, disruptive behavior disorders, and chronic physical illnesses (inflammatory bowel disease and polycystic ovary syndrome), as well as other conditions (obesity, enuresis, and encopresis). Each section includes a brief review of the empirical literature, key points, developmental and cultural considerations, treatment obstacles and challenges, and a self-assessment to measure mastery of the chapter content. Applications and case examples, including therapist language, are integrated throughout the book.
