Sometimes, it can be taken for granted that people are able to manage, cope, or deal with, the variety of challenges and problems that everyday life can throw their way. But how do people know how to use such skills if they have never been taught them? Or, how can we improve such skills when they are already present? Arguably, it is by increasing the individual’s ability to manage the variety of difficult and sometimes complex situations in day-to-day life that supports the personal choice of not resorting to problematic or even offending behaviour.
This workbook offers creative solutions for practitioners who work with clients identified as having general deficits in their thinking skills, and an inability to cope with day-to-day problems within the community. It contains a blend of practical exercises and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) skills that the practitioner can use with adults and young people (15+) on a one-to-one basis to help support them with their problems. The exercises are easy to follow, powerful and adaptable to different learning styles. Simply pick the book up, and go!
