Is CBT an effective form of therapy for teens? Absolutely yes!
In so much as it is a short-term, intensive, goal-oriented approach, CBT has been shown to have significant positive effects on teens for a number of different issues. Mental health is such an important thing, but too many of us have been conditioned by society to believe it doesn’t matter. We get told to buck up and “deal with it” when all we want to do is crawl in bed and cry. I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to “deal with it”. It can be scary, but you’re not alone!
This audio book is here to help teens work through whatever troubles by using CBT. This is a workbook, so it mixes theoretical concepts with practical exercises: boys and girls can, step by step, become familiar with CBT concepts and train their skills, playing and learning new ways to approach life changes and its obstacles.
Here the main conditions that are treated in this audiobook:
- Mood disorders
- Sleep problems
- Low self-esteem
- OCD (Obsessive-compulsive disorder)
- ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)
- Trauma (COVID-19 included)

The role of mindful practice is crucial into this self-improvement journey. It doesn’t matter how old you are, teenagers can benefit from practicing mindfulness, it can help to reduce anxiety and increase happiness.
Over time, cognitive behavioral therapy can guide teenagers through the process of generating more realistic versions of situations and provide the tools necessary to cope with them.
You can begin to understand that negative emotions will pass, much like a dark cloud on a sunny day!
