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.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Beginners lays out an experiential learning program replete with exercises to guide new clinicians, as well as more experienced therapists re-specializing in CBT, through the process of systematically implementing successful CBT interventions both for themselves and their clients. Each chapter examines a key construct in understandable terms, presenting an overarching view of how clinicians put these concepts and techniques into practice in typical as well as in difficult or unexpected scenarios. Readers will come away with a deep understanding not just of the standard principles of CBT but also of the real decisions and strategies that allow seasoned therapists to implement these principles in a way that maximizes the benefit to clients.

This book aims to bridge the gap between child cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as practiced in academic centers and its use in community settings. Because CBT is considered the gold standard in the treatment of a variety of child mental health conditions and has been evaluated in numerous randomized controlled trials, practitioners often face pressure to "do CBT" for children meeting criteria for certain disorders, especially anxiety and depression. This book uses a step-by-step, practical approach to spell out child CBT assessment and treatment considerations that are often not detailed in treatment manuals but are highly relevant to community practitioners.
