Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) for children is a short-term treatment procedure that focuses on teaching children and their parent strategies necessary for coping with problems in daily life. It involves a discussion about how thoughts, feelings and behaviour are interconnected and influence each other. It helps children to take responsibility for choosing more adaptive ways of behaving. It encourages the child to learn new skills through a step by step goal-oriented plan. CBT is helpful in childhood depression, anxiety-related problems and schizophrenia.
