From the Authors
CBT Toolbox for Children and Adolescents was designed with therapists in mind to provide brief, targeted solutions to a myriad of mental health issues that are frequently present in children. The activities in this workbook enhance traditional CBT by promoting the development of a child’s executive functioning, developing social skills, and prompting whole brain approach. Traditional therapy relies heavily on language and the activities in this book accompany language with nonverbal activities to help facilitate growth with individuals who have difficulties reflecting and changing their own negative thinking. This book used a multidisciplinary approach relying on the expertise of school psychologists, social workers and therapists. We have put together an abundance of creative ideas that can engage and inspire allowing clients to express themselves, communicate with others and create positive change.
The workbook covers six clinical areas: Childhood Trauma, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Anxiety, and Depression. The activities are tailored to specific disorders and symptomology and can be combined to meet the client’s needs in regards to interrupting negative thought patterns, developing healthy relationships, and creating a mind-body connection. Within each chapter are four content areas tailored to the specific disorder.
- Cognitive Skills - These activities focus on recognizing symptoms, determining the impact of negative thinking patterns, and enhancing memory strategies.
- Relationship Coaching - These activities focus on the development of pro-social behavior, building alliances, and improving interpersonal relationships.
- Competency Building - These activities target emotional regulation, realistic thinking, coping, and problem solving.
- Brain-Based Learning - These activities focus on developing a mind-body connection, finding motivation, and developing healthy mental and physical habits.
How to Use this Book
In-session Exercises are designed for the therapist to use as a tool while in-session. Including the client, caregiver and therapist in one setting, they are made to spark conversation and make the client comfortable.
Client Activities are created for the child to do themselves either in-session or as homework. Whether supervised by the therapist or their caregiver, they will be able to do the activity at any age or stage in the treatment process.
Caregiver Worksheets are for the parent or caregiver-to help them cope and work with the therapist, and also allow them to become part of the therapy process and reinforce strategies being taught in-session.

As someone with expertise in working with kids with ADHD, I was pleasantly surprised to find that a bunch of those materials are actually useful. It seems like many clinicians often aren't sure how to work with kids & teens with ADHD. The work can definitely be very different than working with kids & teens with mood disorders.
I'm only giving the book 3 stars because the proofreading is terrible! The first time I found a mistake, I expected it was an oversight. By the time I finished reading through the worksheets, I couldn't believe nobody caught the many issues. Spaces are missing from between words. Pronouns are flipped (e.g. "you" instead of "I," changing what the meaning of the sentence should be.). I had to read at least one sentence a couple times to figure out what the authors were trying to say. Given that some of these worksheets are intended to hand out to clients or caregivers to complete between sessions, this is an issue. It would be annoying & make the worksheets with errors look sloppy in session with me there to explain. If I want to use any of the take home ones with errors, I'll need to hand correct them. Sigh.
There are a couple other weird issues. The example scenarios for the Positive Self Talk sheet on p. 238 seem bizarre for a book aimed at kids & teens. The settings include work, going to an art show, a blind date, and going to the store for groceries. Was this page accidentally swapped in from a book intended for work with adults? That sheet isn't useable with kids and maybe not even with teens because the scenarios are so outside kids' experiences. There were a couple other minor things that left me scratching my head, also, but are fixable.
Overall, this is a great resource & I'm glad I got it. The proofreading issues are frustrating & I'll need to neatly fix a few. But mostly I feel sad for the authors, because they obviously did a ton of work, and I think the errors detract from their great efforts.
Anger management, family issues, concentration, interpersonal effectiveness...
I instead bought the paper format & it's what it should be. Lots of activities & worksheets but you really have to spend some time filtering through these & perhaps adapt/change them for what you need. This is a Great IDEA book; but needs some better organization & as others have said proofreading as there are spelling errors.
However, at 252 pages you're bound to find something useful for your Therapy practice.
Counselor and many of the worksheets are great. One thing that for me that is missing is the “cuteness.” Don’t expect any clip art on these pages. They are very basic but have great, kid friendly ideas on them so this book has become my new go to book when working with kids.
