Super Books

Two super books that I will be sharing with both clinical staff, and students in the universities I teach:

Doing CBT: A Comprehensive Guide to Working with Behaviours, Thoughts and Emotions (2016) by David F Tollin is one of the best basic books on CBT;

and:

CBT Strategies for Anxious and Depressed Children and Adolescents (2017) by Eduardo L. Bunge is a great resource book full of illustrations to share with older children.

My teaching session with staff will refer to this and other resources I have recently used.

1 Podcast with Cathy Cresswell highlights that anxious children are not accessing evidence based treatment. Some promising work taking place on social anxiety and look forward to reading about the interventions that may work.

2 Predicting depression. Nice attempt in this to balance science and personal experience in this podcast from MQ Open Mind Podcasts.
