"This book will be indispensable in providing a broad understanding of the field for researchers specialising in specific disorders and the sections on the application of research findings to treatment interventions will be of particular interest to clinicians. The book is accessible and well written and is likely to be a key text on undergraduate and postgraduate courses." (Child and Adolescent Mental Health, 2012)
