Cognitive Therapy for Adolescents in School Settings

We are pleased to announce the publication of “Cognitive Therapy with Adolescents in School Settings” – a concise guide for clinicians which features in-depth case examples and hands-on clinical tools. The authors – including renowned CT originator Aaron T. Beck, clinical child psychologist Torrey A. Creed, and school psychologist Jarrod Reisweber – provide an accessible introduction to the cognitive model and demonstrate specific therapeutic techniques that have been used successfully in the schools. Strategies are illustrated for engaging adolescents in therapy, rapidly creating an effective case conceptualization, and addressing a range of clinical issues and stressors frequently experienced in grades 6–12. The challenges and rewards of school-based CT are discussed in detail. In a convenient large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying, the book contains 16 reproducible handouts, worksheets, and forms. This guide will be a valuable resource for a wide range of professionals, from graduate students seeking a solid knowledge base to experienced professionals looking to expand their repertoire of CT interventions.
