"This text offers clinicians an easily understood map for charting the therapeutic journey that might be taken with a wide range of depressed youth. The organization of core and supplementary skills provides the reader with a clear starting point as well as decision-making guidelines for charting next steps. A valuable resource for both novice and experienced therapists!"
--Brian Buzzella, PhD, ABPP, director of the Family Mental Health Program and codirector of the Clinical Psychology Postdoctoral Residency Program, VA San Diego Healthcare System
"With a rise in commitment to evidence-based practices comes a flood of psychological treatment manuals. Thankfully, Nguyen Williams and Crandal have contributed a unique addition that answers an unmet and critical need in our field. This must-have protocol offers a flexible approach to real-world cases that often require more than traditional cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) manuals provide. Packed with practical tools, vignettes, and case examples, Modular CBT for Children and Adolescents with Depression is an easy-to-follow, culturally sensitive, one-stop-shop for clinicians treating complex juvenile depression."
--Jill A. Stoddard, PhD, coauthor of The Big Book of ACT Metaphors, founder and director of The Center for Stress and Anxiety Management, and associate professor at Alliant International University, San Diego, CA

Therapists in the mental health field and beyond will find a range of methods in this book to effectively treat child and adolescent depression."

"Nguyen Williams and Crandals' book offers a practical and effective approach for treating depression in adolescents. This book is smart, fun, and a great guide for treating depressed adolescents. Therapists will surely find it easy to use and enjoyable."
--Alejandra Postlethwaite, MD, director of behavioral health services at La Maestra Community Health Centers, and clinical professor of health sciences at the University of California, San Diego
"Finally, a cause for celebration in children's and adolescent mental health! Depressive symptoms in this age group are not uncommon, and they are most often treated with a variety of medications, some of which are prescribed off-label and not tested on children, and others which are ineffective or cause unpleasant side effects. Thus, we welcome the arrival of this truly exceptional book for mental health clinicians and psychotherapists who work with children and adolescents with depression. Modular CBT for Children and Adolescents with Depression is so fluidly written and engaging that the professional reader feels immediately connected, and it is also eminently readable and seamlessly organized. The book is a brilliant treatise on the common questions both clinicians and clients have about youth depression, with elucidations of the whats, whens, hows, and whys of this profound diagnosis and treatment. The user-friendly therapeutic techniques are clearly described and explained, and are readily applicable in a clinical setting. Furthermore, they are evidence-based--that is, they have been shown to be effective in numerous studies and clinical trials. Katherine Nguyen Williams and Brent Crandal are to be thanked and congratulated on this significant achievement, a seminal step forward in the treatment of depression in our youth."
--Saul Levine, MD, professor of psychiatry and past division chief of child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego, and psychiatrist-in-chief at Rady Children's Hospital
"Nguyen Williams and Crandal have expertly written a user-friendly, well-organized, and practical manual to support clinicians' systematic and flexible use of evidence-based strategies. This book is a must-have resource for both novice and experienced clinicians working in community and private practice settings with children and adolescents experiencing depression."
--Lauren Brookman-Frazee, PhD, associate professor in the department of psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego, and associate director of the Child and Adolescent Services Research Center
"There are many therapy books on the market, but many of them range from nebulous to tedious. Nguyen Williams and Crandal have elucidated the best treatments for child and adolescent depression from the field of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and integrated the effective interventions into this important work. This clinician's guide has been long awaited; clinicians finally have a highly readable and tremendously useful therapy manual that will impact the clinical work being done with depressed children and adolescents across the nation and internationally."
--Gary Youssef, MFT, program manager of outpatient psychiatry at Rady Children's Hospital
"An essential resource for therapists in real-world mental health settings working with real-world clients for which complex presentations are the norm. [The guide's] applications are straightforward, manageable, and representative of the current state of psychological science."
--Andrea Letamendi, PhD, TEDx Talks speaker, psychological consultant, and director of clinical training at Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services
