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 school psychology, 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.

Industry Reviews

"Kendall and Braswell have updated a book that became a classic upon publication in 1985. The revision charts the remarkable progress that has been made in the assessment, diagnosis, and cognitively based treatment. New lines of work not in the original book are woven into a revision that conveys the development, evolution, and maturation of this treatment program as applied to impulsive children." --Alan E. Kazdin, Ph.D., Psychology, Director of Clinical Training, Yale University "Kendall and Braswell have provided a state-of-the-art description of their clinically sensitive and empirically-based intervention for impulsive children. They have expanded their approach to school and family environments. This practical guidebook will prove valuable to both clinicians and researchers. Kudos!" --Donald Meichenbaum, Ph.D., University of Waterloo

"The first edition of this book was a classic that defined cognitive behavioral therapy with children and served as the foundation for treatment programs for children with a variety of disorders. This edition picks up where the first left off and points to the future of cognitive behavioral therapy by integrating components for working with parents and teachers. Evident throughout the book is the authors' twenty years of research and practice. The authors provide the reader with a cogent review of relevant theory and research as well as case vignettes that bring the descriptions of the treatment to life. This is must reading for all child practitioners." --Kevin Stark, Ph.D., University of Texas
