With the recent expansion of increasing access to psychological therapies (IAPT) CBT is increasingly applied to work with children outside the traditional therapy clinic. This book provides accessible knowledge and practice skills for professional staff working with troubled children and young people in real-world settings. Taking into consideration complex difficulties that do not always fit fixed length treatments, the authors take a much-needed realistic approach to applying CBT to childhood problems.
This is relevant and accessible reading for a wide range of specialist child trainees and practitioners, including new IAPT therapists, counsellors, nurses, teachers and social workers.
Peter Fuggle, Sandra Dunsmuir & Vicki Curry are co-Directors of the UCL accredited Certificate, Diploma & Masters course on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and other outcomes based interventions (CBTOBI) delivered at the Anna Freud Centre in London.
This is a really helpful introductory text for people working with children and adolescents. Some nice examples within and reference to core CBT skills and how these are used is really helpful.
A very good overview of CBT and how to use it in practice with children, young people and families.
A very detailed book of CBT with children, young people and families.
Very well written with relevant chapters especially grounding the book in developmental and cultural aspects first.
Liked the suggested exercises-easy to navigate through the text
A useful book exploring how to work with children, young people and families using the CBT model of therapy.
Excellent contextual book for my CYP trainees
I think this is an excellent book for undergraduate students. The analysis of CBT is clear and comprehensible to students with no background in psychology.
This is essential reading for any post graduate psychology student to understand how CBT can be implemented in the therapy programs when working with children, young people and families. There are clear guidelines on how to prepare for sessions and what possible dilemmas to expect. The many creative ideas includes the use of puppets, television soaps etc. makes this book invaluable for the anyone starting out with CBT but also provide new ideas to CBT therapist working with families. Excellently contextualised.
Excellent up to date text re this approach. Very useful for students and practitioners and families wanting to know more.
Extremely helpful text.
