Cognitive Therapy Techniques for Children and Adolescents: Tools for Enhancing Practice


Product Description

Published USA, 2014
The authors of this text build on their book Clinical Practice of Cognitive Therapy with Children and Adolescents which addresses the basics of treatment. This new volume is full of additional creative strategies for engaging hard-to-reach clients, addressing challenging problems, and targeting particular cognitive and behavioural skills. The core of the book demonstrates innovative interventions that accomplish different therapeutic aims. Chapters cover psychoeducational techniques, behavioural interventions, cognitive restructuring, rational analysis and exposure. Within each chapter or module, therapists can choose from an array of collaborative interventions, depending on the patient's age, developmental level, presenting problem, interests and skills. Most of the procedures can be readily applied in group and family formats as well as in individual treatment. Over 30 reproducible forms and handouts can be photocopied for use with clients.
