Susan Williams White, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Psychology at Virginia Tech and codirector of the Virginia Tech Autism Clinic. She is a clinical psychologist specializing in the treatment of people affected by neurodevelopmental disorders such as ASD. Dr. White has a special interest in interventions for social deficits and co-occurring psychiatric problems, such as anxiety in individuals with ASD, and exploration of transdiagnostic processes such as emotional and behavioral self-regulation.

Tony Attwood, PhD, is a clinical psychologist and Chairperson of the Minds and Hearts Clinic in Brisbane, Australia, and Adjunct Professor at Griffith University in Queensland.

"This much-needed book fills a void. It covers CBT principles, research, program planning, interventions and modifications, and myriad related topics. Chapters provide examples of instructional programs that focus on CBT and discuss the role of parents/caregivers in using CBT. While the term 'must have' is overused, I feel it accurately describes this well-written book. The psychosocial approach has the potential to change the lives of many on the autism spectrum."--Brenda Smith Myles, PhD, State and National Partnerships, Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI)

"Scarpa, White, and Attwood have done a brilliant job of assembling a team of authors who could together construct this timely resource. Each contributor successfully bridges the gap between the literature on CBT for neurotypical children/adolescents and the literature on ASD. The volume informs both practitioners and researchers who are trying to understand and serve these unique youngsters. It is a complete, invaluable tool for anyone seeking to improve the lives of young people on the spectrum and prepare them to be healthy and productive adults."--Valerie L. Gaus, PhD, private practice, Huntington, New York

"An extremely valuable book for clinicians, educators, and researchers. It fills a tremendous need for comprehensive information about empirically validated treatments that can address anxiety and the social challenges that many children and adolescents with ASD face. By describing both the treatment approaches and the science behind them, the volume provides practical information that can be useful today, while also setting the stage for future research."--Geraldine Dawson, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Director, Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development, Duke University

"A truly wonderful addition to the literature. Practical, well written, and easy to use, this book will be a standard for years to come."--Fred R. Volkmar, MD, Irving B. Harris Professor and Director, Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine
