Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for the Busy Child Psychiatrist and Other Mental Health Professionals is an essential resource for clinical child psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists, and mental health professionals. Since 2001, psychiatry residency programs have required resident competency in five specific psychotherapies, including cognitive-behavioral therapy. This unique text is a guidebook for instructors and outlines fundamental principles, while offering creative applications of technique to ensure that residency training programs are better equipped to train their staff.
"This book should be essential reading for all training courses in child CBT. It is truly outstanding. Excellent. A true gem." - Alan Carr, University College Dublin, Ireland
"It is not often that a book brings together theory and practice in such a unique way. The book fills an important gap and will serve to significantly enhance resident training programs. The work of Friedberg et al. will have a major impact on how cognitive-behavioral training is taught within the field of child psychiatry. The text outlines fundamental principles and offers creative applications of technique sure to result in enhanced efficacy." - Ellen Flannery-Schroeder, University of Rhode Island, USA
