“I know that it can be difficult to engage children and adolescents in the treatment process. These kids are often very “reluctant doers”. Reaching this population and engaging them in meaningful therapy is quite a challenge indeed. To improve treatment, I developed my own structured therapeutic activities and wasn’t sure what was going to happen when my co-therapist and I introduced them, but we thought it was worth a try. We were surprised, and relieved, to see kids responding so well. They came to group, participated in the activities, and began to self-disclose intimate details of their lives and struggles. By using the evidence-based, structured, therapeutic activities outlined in this program, you can present treatment in a more relatable manner and help kids learn practical skills to manage depression, anxiety, and self-harm or suicidal urges.”
David M. Pratt, Ph.D., MSW
