Cognitive-Behavioral Play Therapy (CBPT) incorporates cognitive and behavioral interventions within a play therapy paradigm. It provides a theoretical framework based on cognitive-behavioral principles and integrates these in a developmentally sensitive way. Thus, play as well as verbal and nonverbal approaches are used in resolving problems. CBPT differs from nondirective play therapy, which avoids any direct discussion of the child's difficulties. A specific problem-solving approach is utilized, which helps the child develop more adaptive thoughts and behaviors. Cognitive-behavioral therapies are based on the premise that cognitions determine how people feel and act, and that faulty cognitions can contribute to psychological disturbance. Cognitive-behavioral therapies focus on identifying maladaptive thoughts, understanding the assumptions behind the thoughts, and learning to correct or counter the irrational ideas that interfere with healthy functioning. Since their development approximately twenty-five years ago, such therapies have traditionally been used with adults and only more recently with adolescents and children. It has commonly been thought that preschool-age and school-age children are too young to understand or correct distortions in their thinking. However, the recent development of CBPT reveals that cognitive strategies can be used effectively with young children if treatments are adapted in order to be developmentally sensitive and attuned to the child's needs. For example, while the methods of cognitive therapy can be communicated to adults directly, these may need to be conveyed to children indirectly, through play activities. In particular, puppets and stuffed animals can be very helpful in modeling the use of cognitive strategies such as countering irrational beliefs and making positive self-statements. CBPT is structured and goal oriented and intervention is directive in nature.

Over the past twenty to thirty years, more and more evidence has shown that depression not only affects adults but also children and adolescents. The prevalence rate of major depressive disorder (MDD) for children is between 2% and 6 %. Cognitive-behavioral therapy has been effective in treating depression, but children may not have the verbal abilities to express their thoughts and feelings. Children utilize play to express themselves and play therapy has become a very useful therapeutic approach in helping children with social, emotional, and cognitive difficulties. Integrating cognitive-behavioral therapy and play therapy may be an effective therapeutic approach to treating children with depression. A manual was created for treating children with depression utilizing cognitive-behavioral play therapy and child-centered play therapy. The manual serves as a guide for psychologists and other clinicians working with children with depression. The therapeutic program is one hour per week for 10 weeks. The sessions are divided between cognitive-behavioral play therapy and child-centered play therapy and cover topics such as exploring view of self, the world, and self in the world, identifying and expressing affect, building self-esteem, communicating, problem solving, and learning social skills and coping skills. The child and parent/guardian will be administered the Children's Depression Rating Scale-Revised (CDRS-R) prior to the first session and after the last session to assist in determining the effectiveness of this therapeutic program.

Play Therapy Theory and Practice Jason is seven years old and in the second grade. He does well in school and interacts well with other children, although he prefers playing with children who are slightly younger than he is. Jason’s parents have been divorced for two years, but he is close to both of them. Lately he has been given to fits of explosive anger. He is unresponsive to attempts at discipline by either his mother or his teacher. He often seems to withdraw into himself. Recently, he and another boy were arrested for starting a trash fire. Jason was referred to treatment by Child Protective Services following a report to CPS from Jason’s teacher that there was reason to believe that his mother was physically abusing him. Based on these and other details provided in "The Case of Jason L."—including objective and projective test results—how would you characterize Jason’s problem, and how would you apply your particular brand of play therapy in a clinical intervention with Jason? This, in essence, was the question Kevin O’Connor and Lisa Mages Braverman posed to notable play therapists from across North America. The chapters in this book record their detailed responses. In each chapter, an author (or authors) describes a particular theoretical model of play therapy and explains how he or she would apply it to Jason’s case. Among the schools of thought represented are client-centered, psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, Jungian, filial, developmental, Gestalt, family therapy, ecosystemic, Ericksonian, Adlerian, dynamic, and strategic family. In orchestrating Play Therapy Theory and Practice, Dr. O’Connor’s and Dr. Braverman’s goal was to provide readers with an opportunity to gain a practical, hands-on understanding of how current approaches to play therapy work, as well as the underlying principles upon which they are based. Considering the dramatic proliferation of new approaches to play therapy and the corresponding increase in the volume of published material, this book comes not a moment too soon. Play Therapy Theory and Practice is required reading for clinical child psychologists, child psychiatrists, counselors, school psychologists, and all mental health practitioners who work with children.

Jetzt nur für kurze Zeit: Preiswerte Jubiläumsedition! Der amerikanische Psychotherapeut und Autor auflagenstarker Romane ist zugleich Verfasser des Lehrbuches zur Gruppenpsychotherapie. Es versteht sich als praktische Anleitung für Psychotherapeuten aller Schulen, die mit Gruppen arbeiten. Es reflektiert zugleich aber auch die wissenschaftlichen Grundlagen des Fachs. Der Fülle der Gruppentherapien wird Irvin Yalom gerecht, indem er sie nach ihren Methoden und »therapeutischen Faktoren« ordnet. Fallbeispiele aus mehr als 2000 Gruppensitzungen machen den Text so anschaulich, dass auch ein praktisch wenig erfahrener Therapeut die besonderen Schwierigkeiten einer Gruppenbehandlung meistern kann. Ein Buch, das sich seit über zwei Jahrzehnten als anerkanntes Lehrbuch halten kann, benötigt von Zeit zu Zeit eine gründliche Überarbeitung. In diese Ausgabe, die teilweise neu übersetzt wurde, gingen zahlreiche Anpassungskorrekturen ein. Überholte Therapieansätze wurden gestrichen, viele neue theoretische und methodische Erkenntnisse wurden integriert. Am grundsätzlichen Aufbau des Buches und an seiner Zielrichtung wurde jedoch nicht gerüttelt.
