CBT Therapy for Children
How do we apply CBT to children? CBT Therapy is a goal-centred and structured approach to helping young minds navigate their thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Young people work closely with the child therapist to identify harmful thought patterns and understand how these thoughts influence their actions and feelings. CBT helps children confront and modify their negative thinking, regulate their emotional discomfort, and manage stressful situations using a range of techniques and activities, including cognitive restructuring and behaviour modification. CBT emphasizes teamwork and encourages children to take part in their treatment. It helps children develop problem-solving skills, increase self-awareness and support adaptive behaviours.
