Practical Tips for Counseling Children Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Scroll To Bottom To Purchase


The principles of Solutions Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) have been increasingly applied to areas beyond clinical psychology, such as in education. Helping children and adolescents in school look beyond their current struggles and challenges towards their strengths and values in order to encourage and empower them to make behavioral changes in the direction of their own goals, is a philosophical foundation behind the practical tips in this webinar presentation.  In addition, the components of the TEAM-CBT model (Dr. David Burns) are used to describe a method of working with children and adolescents such that the students themselves feel lowered resistance to checking on their thoughts and challenging feelings, and begin to reframe those in ways that move them toward their own goals and values. By engaging with students using unconditional positive regard and empathy, school psychologists can help students externalize problems and their corresponding unhelpful automatic thoughts, such that young people can come up with solutions for feeling and doing better and partner with a caring school psychologist to feel proud of themselves and supported.

“I loved the practical tools. Many trainings are theoretical, but I don’t walk away with any skills that I can really use. Rebecca was very good at finetuning strategies I have used. I loved how she suggested we keep ourselves busy while waiting for a response from the client and incorporate their ideas into goal setting.” -Marla

“Practical examples of effective techniques and strategies.” -Veronica
