CBT with Children, Young People and Families



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.

This is an accessible, well organised book which would help students who need an understanding of the main intervention offered to children and young people. The case studies and mini transcripts are very helpful allowing students to apply theory to practice.

Excellent, down to earth overview of the use of CBT with children. I like the use of case material to illustrate the theoretical concepts, especially using the same three cases throughout the book. I also like the further reading at the end of chapters. This is useful especially for students as they write essays. The book is well set out and written in an accessible style.
