About this book

This book is a newly revised version of the highly influential text, Rational Emotive Behavioral Approaches to Childhood Disorders: Theory, Practice and Research, based on an earlier volume by Bernard and Ellis. The revised edition incorporates recent significant advances in applying this approach to younger populations, updates best practice guidelines, and discusses the burgeoning use of technology to deliver mental health services.

Featuring content from experts across a variety of areas, the book provides clinical guidance to a range of professionals working with children, including counselors, social workers, clinical and school psychologists. It also offers extensive illustrated material, self-test questions, and other useful resources to aid with use as a graduate level text or training reference.

Among the topics addressed:

  • Developing therapeutic skillsets for working with children and adolescents
  • Promoting self-acceptance in youth
  • Building resilience in youth
  • Parent counselling and education
  • Teacher stress management

Cognitive-Behavioral, Rational Emotive Treatment of Childhood Problems highlights the potential for evidence-based services to reach and positively influence child and adolescent populations that remain underserved by today’s clinical and educational systems.
