This course is designed for graduate students in clinical science and presents an introduction to therapy with children, adolescents and families. Treatment approaches from several different theoretical perspectives will be highlighted—including cognitive behavioral, family systems, and social learning theory. Discussions will include case material covering a broad spectrum of topics typically encountered in child work, such as ADHD, depression, anxiety, defiant behavior, trauma, and autism. Clinical material will highlight the importance of gender, race, and cultural issues in the therapeutic process. Collateral work with parents, play therapy, the use of different modalities, and brief treatment approaches will also be addressed. Finally, this course will touch upon other related interventions and efforts at prevention that may be school or community based.
