A Cognitive Behavioral Group Intervention to Develop Skilled Thinking and Reasoning for Children with Cognitive, Behavioral, Emotional and Social Problems This program is designed to teach children and those involved in their care psychological techniques to improve self-control and prosocial competence. The program employs cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and uses a child-centered approach to teach attention skills, emotional control, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills to children aged 8-12 who have cognitive, behavioral, social or emotional difficulties. This manual includes designated group sessions to be delivered by healthcare practitioners alongside individual coaching sessions to be provided by a family member or individual carer between each group meeting. Extra materials include PowerPoint presentations, and a Thinking Tools resource, which are available to download from the JKP website.
