Carr What Works with Children, Adolescents, and Adults?What Works with Children, Adolescents, and Adults? provides an up-to-date review of research on the effectiveness of psychotherapy and psychological interventions with children, adolescents, adults, people in later life, and people with intellectual and pervasive developmental disabilities.
Drawing on recent meta-analyses, systematic reviews, and key research studies in psychotherapy, this volume presents evidence for:
the overall effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of psychotherapy
the contribution of common factors to the outcome of successful psychotherapy
the effectiveness of specific psychotherapy protocols for particular problems.
This comprehensive, user-friendly guide will inform clinical practice, service development and policy. It will be invaluable to psychotherapists, service managers, policymakers, and researchers.
