This book is divided into two parts that build very effectively on each other. The first part focuses on the behavioral treatment of adult disorders, and the second reviews behavioral interventions for disorders of children and adolescents. The book covers such topics as major depression (adult and childhood), anxiety disorders, posttraumatic stress disorders, eating disorders (adult and childhood), obsessive-compulsive disorder in children, conduct disorder, and mental retardation. The initial chapters of each section begin with a behavioral case conceptualization that sets the stage for the following chapters. Each chapter is organized consistently to give the reader a common blueprint to understand each disorder. Individual chapters go by the following outline: 1) description of the disorder, 2) case description, 3) chief complaint, 4) history, 5) behavioral assessment, 6) medical complications, 7) case conceptualization, 8) rationale for treatment, 9) course of treatment, 10) therapist-client factors, 11) course of termination, 12) follow-up, 13) managed care considerations, and 14) overall effectiveness.
