CBT is Effective for Internalizing Disorders in Children

According to a recent literature review published in Clinical Child and Family Psychology Review, several studies provide initial support for the application, efficacy/effectiveness, and transportability of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for children with internalizing disorders. This review focused specifically on computer-based CBT, camp-based CBT, school-based CBT, and CBT delivered in primary care settings and lends support for these methods.
