Hi Sana! Was great to chat in the chat session. Tips I’d give would be:
– have proper training and supervision in using CBT
– ask the young people what they want help with
– break techniques down so they are easier to understand
– use pictures
– maybe try behavioural techniques first (experimenting with changing behaviours) because they tend to be easier than cognitive techniques for children to understand (thinking about thinking is hard!)
Those are some ideas – there’s loads more in a book called Think Good Feel Good by Paul Stallard.
