Guilford Pr.


326 pages




Friedberg (psychiatry, Penn State U. College of Medicine), McClure (a clinical psychologist at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center), and Garcia (a resident trainee at the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Penn State U. College of Medicine) present a companion to Friedberg and McClure's Clinical Practice of Cognitive Therapy with Children and Adolescents: The Nuts and Bolts that describes more advanced techniques procedures beyond the basic approaches presented in the earlier work. The cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques described are designed for hard-to-reach clients, difficult-to-treat problems, and more complex cases. Chapters are presented on using assessment efficiently; behavioral interventions; self-instructional and cognitive restructuring methods; rational analysis; and performance, attainment, and exposure.
