This one-page introduction explains cognitive behavioral treatment and interventions in child-friendly terms.
If your students are receiving CBT-based interventions, this handout explains why the interventions are important and also let them know what to expect. It explains that they will learn to:
1. Stop and notice unhelpful thoughts.
2. Slow down and get calm.
3. Find the best and most helpful way of thinking so that they can make good choices.
With these three skills, they won’t have to stay stuck in upsetting feelings. They will be able to think more clearly about things that happen to them, stay calm, and make good choices.
