Each chapter of this guidebook is co-authored by a clinical child psychologist and a child psychiatrist, the basis of the volume's unique and balanced perspective. In addition, each chapter presents state-of-the-art assessment and treatment strategies for a panoply of phobic and anxiety disorders, including both psychosocial and pharmacological interventions. Moreover, the volume addresses important conceptual, epidemiological, and ethical issues in working with children and adolescents. All in all, this guide will help address the wide chasm between clinical research and clinical practice, uniting the forces intrinsic to child psychiatry and clinical child psychology.
