This book discusses how trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy can be used to help children and adolescents who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. Cognitive behavior therapy is frequently used to treat adults who suffer from PTSD with proven results. This book provides the therapist with instructions on how CBT models can be used with children and young people to combat the disorder. Based on research carried out by the authors, this book covers: assessment procedures and measures; case formulation and treatment planning; trauma focused CBT methods; real-world hurdles in treatment. The authors provide case studies and practical tips, as well as examples of self-report measures and handouts for young people and their parents which will help the practitioner to prepare for working with this difficult client group. "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" is an accessible, practical, clinically relevant guide for professionals and trainees in child and adolescent mental health service teams who work with traumatized children and young people.
