CBT Toolbox for Children and Adolescents: Over 200 Worksheets & Exercises for Trauma, ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, Depression and Conduct Disorders

Overview

The CBT Toolbox for Children and Adolescents was designed with therapists in mind to provide brief, targeted solutions to a myriad of mental health issues that are frequently present in children. The activities in this workbook enhance traditional CBT by promoting the development of a child’s executive functioning, developing social skills, and prompting a whole brain approach. This book uses a multidisciplinary approach relying on the expertise of school psychologists, social workers, and therapists. Written by clinicians and teachers with decades of experience working with kids, these unique and effective therapy tools are vital to teaching youth how to cope with and overcome their day-to-day struggles.

The workbook covers six clinical areas: Childhood Trauma, ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, Conduct Disorder, and Depression. The activities are tailored to specific disorders and symptomology and can be combined to meet the individual’s needs in regards to interrupting negative thought patterns, developing healthy relationships, and creating mind-body connection.

Within each chapter are four content areas tailored to the specific disorder: Cognitive Skills, Relationship Coaching, Competency Building and Brain-based Learning. This workbook provides activities to address countless symptoms with skill-building exercises. There are three types of worksheets: In-session Exercise, Client Activity, and Caregiver Worksheet. These handouts have different uses and are written from a different perspective.

Praise

“The CBT Toolbox for Children and Adolescents has CBT activities all in one place. It offers a breadth of CBT exercises that will guide your practice with children who need support to change patterns of thinking or behavior. In addition, the authors have created a comprehensive table of contents to keep you organized and guide your selection of tools for the most common mental health disorders seen in schools and practice today. This is a must-have resource for clinicians who want effective, evidence-based tools at their fingertips.”

—Kristie Reed, LICSW, BCBA, Director, Baird School & INCLUSION Program

“The CBT Toolbox for Children and Adolescents is an excellent resource for any clinician working with children and families. The book covers common challenges seen in children including issues with childhood trauma, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Anxiety, and Depression. The structure of the book allows clinicians to easily choose activities that will target particular skill sets and participants (child only, caregiver involvement, and/or therapist involvement). The book provides a comprehensive introduction to each disorder covered and explains how the activities and worksheets will address the respective symptoms or behaviors. The activities and worksheets themselves are very easy to understand and implement, include helpful diagrams/visuals, and can be adapted to each particular child or situation. There is a wide array of activity types to appeal to children with differing strengths and interests. The authors demonstrate a clear expertise in using CBT to address these common challenges seen in children. This is an invaluable tool for clinicians to use with a range of children!”
