Already a tried-and-tested guide for trainee psychologists and psychotherapists, as well as clinicians in mental health services and private practices, this text is also of value to practitioners who need refresher courses in CBT.
Excellent summary of CBT theory, practice and developments; the new edition has many improvements over the first edition although some good material has also been lost.
This is an excellent text for students with a pre-existing konwledge of cbt. It is very clearly presented and is enhanced greatly by the use of case studies. I have attended workshops by Alec Grant and find him very interesting, inspiring and expert in this area.
Thorough, detailed and up-to-date content, easily accessible, both visually and verbally.
A good introductory text that will help students to understand the core concepts of working with CBT strategies.
Very practical guide to CBT could be used for under graduate and post graduate students
In psychiatric nursing
An excellent contemporary oververview of the general CBT approach with a refreshing reemphasis on the therapeautic relationship.
The practical applications to prevalent mental health problems are most useful but what elevates this book above others is the focus on contextual issues making it a highly recommended read for students and seasoned practitioners alike.
Nice book. Clearly written.
This is an excellent solid foundation into key aspects of CBT for pre-registration mental health nursing students.It covers a good range of contemporary areas of clinical practice. Each chapter has clear learning objectives and recommended further reading, thus offering helpful structure for student studies.
The text covers key aspects of assessment and formulation within cognitive behavioural therapy, whilst also addresses the application of CBT principles and skills to specific client groups. The text has a clear structural coherance; activities at the end of each chapter facilitating further learning.
An essential text to students and practitioners working within the field of mental health, particularly for those involved in the delivery of CBT interventions.
An informative text which contextualises the use of CBT within current contemporary mental health practice and which takes account of the user persepctive.
This book is of equal interest to trainees and qualified practitioners from the fields of both counselling and psychotherapy and the mental health professions.
