Edited by Lawrence E. Shapiro, Ph.D. Research has shown that psychotherapy with children always works best when the treatment goals are supported in the home and the classroom. The illustrated activity book provides therapists with dozens of fun activities for children to learn new emotional, social, and behavioral skills. The activities cover a broad range of topics, including: learning to be responsible, forgetfulness, dealing with negative thinking, learning from your mistakes, and much more.

The activities are arranged in four sections, corresponding with the four basic modalities in which psychological interventions are typically constructed: Affective, Behavioral, Cognitive, and Social System. Ideally, a child's treatment program will include all four modalities - the ABCs of psychotherapeutic treatment. Activities can be done within a therapeutic session, sent home with the child to do with his/her parents, used as an activity for discussion in group therapy, or used as part of a classroom curriculum. The book comes with a CD so that you can easily print out activities. 100 pages, spiral-bound.
