CBT with Children, Young People and Families

CBT with Children, Young People and Families

Additional resources:

December 2012 | 312 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This timely book uniquely addresses the application of CBT to children and young people within health, school and community contexts.

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.

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.
