Abstract and Keywords

Advances in the development of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and the findings from outcome research with youth are noted. CBT has empirical support for treating a variety of childhood and adolescents disorders (e.g. anxiety, OCD, depression, disruptive behavior disorders). This chapter begins by defining empirically supported and evidence-based treatment and reviewing its history, and considers the developmental context that guides the adaptation of CBT for youth. We overview common CBT components, and we discuss the implementation of CBT for specific childhood disorders. The chapter concludes by discussing the dissemination of evidence-based treatment, school-based interventions, brief CBT, computer-assisted CBT, and transdiagnostic approaches.

Keywords: cognitive-behavioral therapy, childhood disorders, adolescents, psychopathology, outcomes, treatment response
