- "How to weigh genetic factors while choosing the best psychosocial interventions. Psychosocial Interventions for Biologically Based Problems in Childhood and Adolescence explores empirically supported psychosocial interventions in light of our current understanding of the genome. It considers how interventions may be modified and enhanced as the products of genomic research continue to expand. Providing a clear, accessible assessment of our current knowledge, both of the genome and evidence based treatments, Psychosocial Interventions for Biologically Based Problems in Childhood and Adolescence provides practical advice to clinicians treating young people who present with a variety of conditions including anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism, substance abuse, and dyslexia. Rende discusses the current understanding of genetic etiology of psychopathology, and explores the support, or lack thereof, for various modes of treatment in light of new genomic knowledge. Treating children suffering today, rather than waiting for a "magic bullet" How empirically-supported interventions mesh with genetic vulnerabilities Ways in which interventions may change as genetic research continues "--

Topics include treating children suffering today, rather than waiting for a "magic bullet"; how empirically-supported interventions mesh with genetic vulnerabilities; and ways in which interventions may change as genetic research continues"--
