Although by some estimates there are over 400 different treatments approaches - all of which attempt to alleviate psychological distress among children and adolescents - not all mental health therapies for young people are created equal. Thankfully, researchers are constantly evaluating and comparing the effects of various treatments for a variety of mental health problems.
This site, developed by the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies and the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, provides users with free information about what the research has shown to be the most effective mental health psychotherapy treatments available today. It reviews the research data in an objective and easy-to-read manner.
The site was designed with both consumers and professionals in mind, and offers different levels of information and research references for each group.
If you're not sure what kind of treatment your child or teen should be receiving for a given disorder, this website can help clarify your concerns and ask the right questions of treatment professionals.
