Therapists who strive to provide evidence-based interventions for effective symptom reduction often utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT has a wealth of research backing demonstrating its effectiveness for treating a wide variety of mental health concerns. However, some struggle to implement this talk-based approach to treatment with younger clients. Children process differently and cannot always engage in traditional talk psychotherapy techniques, or they do not get the same benefit as older clients.
This course arms you with the knowledge and skills to effectively implement CBT with children. The course is broken down into four sections:
- An overview of the research backing for CBT with child clients, including risks, limitations, and potential contraindications of this approach.
- A description of CBT as a therapeutic approach specifically with children and adolescents.
- A toolbox of CBT interventions appropriate for children and adolescents, including interventions for rapport building, assessment of symptoms, treatment planning, emotion identification, and cognitive restructuring.
- A toolbox of CBT interventions appropriate for children and adolescents, including interventions for behavior modification, communication skills, maintenance, and termination.
At the end of this course, you will have all of the knowledge and skills you need in order to engage in CBT with young clients. You will gain knowledge of the ways that this approach can benefit clients as well as information about risks and limitations. Finally, you will possess an arsenal of ready-to-use interventions for your sessions.
- Appraise the benefits and limitations of cognitive behavioral therapy with children presenting with various symptoms and diagnoses, including mood, behavioral, and neurodevelopmental concerns.
- Integrate evidence-based cognitive behavioral interventions into child therapy sessions while building and maintaining rapport.
- Develop interventions and treatment plans from a cognitive behavioral orientation that are developmentally appropriate for young children.
- Measure client progress and symptom reduction in response to evidence-based cognitive behavioral protocols.
