Overview

Cognitive-Constructivist Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents describes cognitive-constructivist therapy with children and adolescents as a creative process, combining various techniques.

This volume is organized in three parts: Theory: reviewing the literature and building a theoretical foundation; Intervention model: offering guidelines for decision-making while designing the intervention process and proposing a self-control intervention model; and, Clinical illustrations: discussing specific childhood disorders spanning different cognitive stages and encompassing different problem areas, illustrating through case studies. Cognitive-Constructivist Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents is an invaluable resource for child psychologists and psychiatrists.
