About this book
Cognitive-Constructivist Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents describes cognitive-constructivist therapy with children and adolescents as a creative process, combining various techniques. This book presents an integrative view, incorporating cognitive and constructivist orientations in reference to theory and combining clinical psychology with developmental psychology in reference to child therapy. It presents an integration of the designed, goal-directed processes of decision-making in treating children, with flexible, creative modes of intervention.
This volume is organized in three parts:
- Theory: reviewing the literature and building a theoretical foundation;
- Intervention model: offering guidelines for decision-making while designing the intervention process and proposing a self-control intervention model; and,
- Clinical illustrations: discussing specific childhood disorders spanning different cognitive stages and encompassing different problem areas, illustrating through case studies.
