Instructional resource for mental health clinicians on using cognitive behavioural therapy with adolescents and young adults
This book complements author Paul Stallard’s Think Good, Feel Good and provides a range of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy resources that can be used with adolescents and young adults. Building upon that book’s core strengths, it provides psycho-educational materials specifically designed for adolescents and young people. The materials, which have been used in the author’s clinical practice, can also be utilized in schools to help adolescents develop better cognitive, emotional and behavioural skills.
Thinking Good, Feeling Better includes traditional CBT ideas and also draws on ideas from the third wave approaches of mindfulness, compassion focused therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. It includes practical exercises and worksheets that can be used to introduce and develop the key concepts of CBT. The book starts by introducing readers to the origin, basic theory, and rationale behind CBT and explains how the workbook should be used. Chapters cover techniques used in CBT; the process of CBT; valuing oneself; learning to be kind to oneself; mindfulness; controlling feelings; thinking traps; solving problems; facing fears; and more.
