    The Promise of Evidence-Based Practices in Child and Adolescent Mental Health
    (2014-01-01) Kendall, Phillip C; Beidas, Rinad S
    The push for evidence-based practices has dominated the mental health and health care arenas for more than a decade. Conversations among professionals who provide mental health services for youth have included both support and opposition to this position. On the one hand, there is a plethora of discourse indicating widespread support for the need to provide the best available services for youth in need, delivered through the provision of evidence-based practices. On the other hand, there are also opponents to this viewpoint, primarily arguing that evidence-based practices developed in research settings may not fit the context of community providers. A gap already existed between research and practice, and the push for evidence-based practices has further widened the rift between divisions in the mental health field.

    Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with Youth
    (2010-01-01) Crawley, Sarah A; Podell, Jennifer L; Beidas, Rinad S; Braswell, Lauren; Kendall, Phillip C
    Cognitive-behavioral therapies (CBTs) with children and adolescents use enactive, performance-based procedures, as well as cognitive interventions to produce changes in thinking, feeling, and behavior. Various forms of CBT have a common goal to help the child develop a constructive worldview and a problem-solving attitude. The problem-solving orientation can also be referred to as a "coping template." Through the provision of carefully planned experiences, CBT helps the child and family build an adaptive, problem-solving perspective.

    Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment for Child and Adolescent Anxiety: The Coping Cat Program
    (2008-01-01) Beidas, Rinad S; Podell, Jennifer L; Kendall, Phillip C
    Anxiety disorders are common psychological disorders experienced by youth (Warren & messer, 1999), with reported rates of 10-20% in the general population and primary care settings (Chavira, Stein, Bailey, & Stein, 2004; Costello, Mustillo, Keeler, & Angold, 2004). Anxiety disorders in youth include generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social phobia (SP), separation anxiety disorder (SAD), specific phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) (APA, 1994). In this chapter, we focus on treatment for the three youth anxiety disorders: GAD, SP, and SAD.
