Features specific, highly effective counseling interventions for school-age children that can be put to use immediately

Twenty percent of school-age children in the United States experience mental health issues each year and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the most effective and empirically supported interventions to address these needs. This practical, quick-reference handbook is for mental health professionals in the Kñ12 school setting who are seeking a hands-on guide for practicing CBT. Based on a wealth of research supporting the efficacy of CBT for school-age children, it features specific interventions that can be applied immediately and is tailored to the needs of busy school psychologists, counselors, and social workers. Importantly, this book describes how to use CBT within contemporary school-based service delivery frameworks such as multitiered systems of support (MTSS) and response to intervention (RtI).

Examining the core components of CBT in the context of school-based therapy, this book offers developmentally appropriate treatment plans targeted for specific issues based on the new DSM-5 criteria, as well as tools for measuring progress and outcomes. Case conceptualization examples are provided in addition to contraindications for counseling therapy. The book also explains how to adapt treatment in light of developmental issues and cultural considerations. Case examples, sample reports, and a great variety of reproducible handouts (also available in digital download format) are provided to help school mental health professionals use CBT as part of their regular practice.
