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.
An essential read for those involved in working from a cognitive perspective with children young people and their families.
Really useful for students new to this approach and those starting out.
Easy to read with an appropriate level of practical application and theory.
Great for beginner - intermediate levle of CBT.
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.
Very nice introduction - included on recommended reading list
A very good book for supplematary reading.
great book which gives students an overview of CBT with children and their families
The contents is interesting, and easily to be understood by beginners. CBT steps is clearly explained in the book.
This is an up-to-date and much needed text which addresses the theory and practice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for applied psychologists mostly working with school-age children and their families, in schools rather than in clinic settings. I found it readable and was grateful that the authors described links between CBT and other therapeutic interventions such as Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness, to ground CBT meaningfully into the wider body of mental health therapies. I found the different vignettes helpful in making sense of the complexities of the topics presented, and would recommend this book to trainees as well as more experienced practitioners.
