“The second edition (like the first edition) is well written and based upon up-to-date research. It provides a comprehensive description of best practice and is a must read/must have book for mental health experts who work with students in school settings. I recommend this book with considerable enthusiasm.”

From the Foreword

Providing content that is conveniently embedded within current school-based delivery models, this text delivers a workbook of effective, easily applied cognitive-behavioral counseling strategies focused on helping children and adolescents with common mental health issues. School-based practitioners will learn the nuts and bolts of applied practice for fostering meaningful student outcomes, especially related to improving their patterns of thought, behavior, and emotional regulation skills.

The second edition adds value by offering new content on mindfulness interventions, acceptance and commitment therapy, habit reversal training, and behavioral activation. Step-by-step CBT applications are described in greater detail, and two additional case studies help readers to better grasp CBT techniques. Additional new features include enhanced coverage of culturally responsive CBT research, scholarship, and applied practice tips, along with 50 practical worksheets.

The book is distinguished by its in-depth coverage of CBT counseling skills along with an enhanced session-ready application approach for delivering effective interventions in the K-12 context. It offers specific strategies and session sequence based on behavioral diagnosis, and it includes numerous counseling tools such as therapy worksheets, schematics of core concepts, and software apps for use in session or as homework. Also provided are tools for teaching core CBT concepts to children, worksheets to reinforce them, and parent handouts.
