The first edition of Kendall and Braswell's Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Impulsive Children has been used successfully by thousands of clinicians to help children reduce impulsivity and improve their self-control. Building on the procedures reviewers call "powerful tools", "empirically sound and clinically sophisticated", and "of great value to professionals who work with children", the authors have expanded the program that they designed and developed in a number of ways. These include: adaptations that expand its use to a wider range of problems, including impulsive behavior both with and without ADHD, Conduct Disorder, and learning disabilities; greater utilization of hands-on workbook materials; systematic involvement of parents and teachers; application to a broader variety of settings - from the clinician's office to work with groups, families, and within schools; and more detailed descriptions of treatment strategies, clearly illustrated with case examples and transcripts. Revising and updating the acclaimed original work, and presenting the most detailed account to date of how to implement the authors' carefully wrought procedures, this second edition is an invaluable resource for anyone working with children who need to learn how to "stop and think" before they act. Readers will find this book a rich model of how psychologists develop clinically sensitive and empirically sound approaches to a problem. Offering the specificity clinicians need to incorporate these strategies into their practice, this volume is an invaluable resource for child and family psychologists, social workers, educators, and psychiatrists. It also serves as an ancillary text for courses in schoolpsychology, clinical child psychology, educational interventions, applied developmental psychology, and other mental-health-related classes. In addition, parents, classroom teachers, and others who encounter impulsive children will find the work accessible and informative.
