Providing a wealth of practical interventions and activities--all organized within a state-of-the-art modular framework--this invaluable book helps child clinicians expand their cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) toolkits. Going beyond the basics, the authors provide effective ways to engage hard-to-reach clients, address challenging problems, and target particular cognitive and behavioral skills. Fun and productive games, crafts, and other activities are described in step-by-step detail. More than 30 reproducible forms and handouts can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
