Designed for mental health professionals treating children and adolescents, “Brain-Based Therapy with Children and Adolescents: Evidence-Based Treatment for Everyday Practice” is a simple but powerful primer for understanding and successfully implementing the most critical elements of neuroscience into an evidence-based mental health practice.  Written for counsellors, social workers, psychologists, and graduate students, this new treatment approach focuses on the most common disorders facing children and adolescents, taking into account the uniqueness of each client, while preserving the requirements of standardized care under evidence-based practice.

The book gives one enough data about what is going on in the brain with certain disorders; information which can be passed on to the patients to help them understand what is happening to them when they have, for instance, an anxiety disorder, OCD, PTSD, depression, etc.
