Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Diverse Youth
Researchers and clinicians are increasingly recognizing the importance of attending to dimensions of diversity in clinical work given the changing demographics of the USA. There exists a growing evidence base demonstrating the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with racial and ethnic minority youth, and there is some work examining CBT with sexual and gender minority youth. In this chapter, we review some of this literature and present a case example with a Latinx transgender girl and her parents. We focus on the importance of developing a strong working alliance within a CBT framework and use the literature on cultural competency to ground our recommendations.
