Most young children on the autism spectrum have difficulty recognizing and controlling negative emotions. The Stamp Treatment Manual-Exploring Feelings is a practical set of strategies that work together to help children manage their moods by decreasing negative feelings and increasing positive feelings in daily life.
This book will teach you to use cognitive behavioral therapy tools through the Stress and Anger Management Program (STAMP). This program is designed for preschool and early elementary aged children. This book includes the curriculum for the STAMP program which you can use to teach young autistic children in nine group sessions using games and activities that are developmentally appropriate. Treatment components include effective education, cognitive restructuring, and the emotional toolbox.
