Over the course of the past 25 years Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has claimed an honored place among the various psychological treatments available in the market. It has become the treatment of choice for anxiety disorders, depression and even improving psychotic behavior. It's most striking and effective application is in schools - with the goal of improving student behavior and academic performance.
CBT is a short term process – much more so than traditional therapy. It is a clear system which can be learned by most people in a year or two. It is for these reasons that it is most suited for teachers in order to improve their teaching.
The book discusses and illustrates treatment programs for a range of educational problems which include: motivating students, dealing with disruptive students, dealing with ADD and dealing with aggression in schools.
