Is CBT an effective form of therapy for children? Absolutely yes!
In recent years, into the scientific community has grown a body of proofs that supports this statement. Sometimes, as adults, we forget that children can experience some tough emotions or horrible situations. We write them off cause they are “young and resilient”, but that’s the wrong thing to do. Things that happen during childhood will have lasting effects, and it can cause them some serious problems later in life.
The goal of this audiobook is to help children work through these things by using CBT. This is a workbook, so it mixes theoretical concepts with practical exercises: parents and kids can, step by step, become familiar with CBT concepts and train their skill together, playing and learning new ways to approach modern life and its obstacles.
Here the main conditions that are treated in this audiobook:
- ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)
- Mood disorders
- Eating disorders
- OCD (Obsessive compulsive disorder)
- PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder)
The role of mindful practice is crucial into this self-improvement journey: It doesn’t matter how old your child is; kids can benefit from practicing mindfulness, it can help to reduce their anxiety and increase their happiness. Over time, cognitive behavioral therapy can guide children through the process of generating more realistic versions of situations and provide the tools necessary to cope with them.
Kids can begin to understand that negative emotions will pass, much like a dark cloud on a sunny day!
