Brain Bullies is an effective tool for introducing the principals of cognitive therapy to children. The creative and colorful illustrations in Brain Bullies helps children identify the cognitive distortions that can make them anxious. The fun and nonthreatening illustrations of the “Brain Bullies” helps children develop an understanding of the internal dialogue that contributes to anxiety and other forms of emotional distress and upset. The most common distortive thought patterns are covered in Brain Bullies. Brain Bullies teaches children (with support from a counselor or parent) to identify and challenge cognitions that contribute to emotional distress and how to form alternative and adaptive cognitions. As children gain control over their “Brain Bullies” self-esteem is bolstered and anxiety is decreased. Counselors, parents, and teachers can play an active part in sharing and reading the text as they help children develop an appreciation and understanding of the different types of cognitive distortions, and which ones might apply to them.
This engaging book is a valuable resource for children to recognize that negative thoughts are much like having a bully living inside your brain. Brain Bullies introduces children to positive self-talk strategies they can use to drown out irrational thoughts and face their fears.” Pam Dyson, MA, LPC-S, RPT-S - DFW Center for Play Therapy Training
