Abstract

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) describes a group of psychotherapeutic techniques in which psychological distress and maladaptive behaviors are treated by changing cognitions and behaviors. Literature provides support for CBT as an effective intervention for children and adolescents, however, there is limited literature on how CBT can be adapted for children and adolescents with Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Conduct Disorders. This paper reviews relevant literature, and comments on how CBT can be adapted for children and adolescents with complex symptoms of Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Conduct Disorders, with a discussion of practical applications.
