This chapter presents the evidence base for clinic and school-based interventions for four common childhood disorders or related symptom patterns: attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), major depressive disorder (MDD), disruptive behavior disorders, and anxiety disorders and related symptoms. It shows that within the existing base for each disorder, psychosocial interventions include an array of behavioral approaches. The psychopharmacology evidence base is strongest for ADHD, weaker for other disorders, and virtually nonexistent for anxiety disorders. Adjunctive studies examining a combination of psychosocial and psychopharmacological interventions were rare, with the largest and most sophisticated one for ADHD.

Keywords: attention-deficit; hyperactivity disorder; major depressive disorder; disruptive behavior disorders; anxiety disorders; psychopharmacology
