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 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.

This book provides a good overview and insight into providing CBT for children, young people and adults. It helpfully uses case examples to illustrate the application of CBT and is accessible and easy to read.

This is an excellent resource that divided the topic into three parts. There is excellent use of three case examples to reinforce the main points throughout. The boxes identifying key points from each chapter are very useful. The suggested exercises again are a useful tool to consolidate learning. Overall it is an easy to use resource that will appeal to a wide range of students and I will include it as supplementary reading to my students.

This area may not be an initial priority for ITE students but this text will alert them to the potential of the approach which has much to offer in a primary setting.
