'This is an essential resource both for students of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and qualified cognitive behavioural therapists.
This book is a good academic resource for students and trainee counsellors. With jargon-free and easy to follow explanations, the authors provide a comprehensive overview of contemporary CBT practice. The various chapters bring theory and research to the forefront of CBT practice. Clinical vignettes and case studies illustrate how to put in practice the various skills and key concepts. Important aspects of safe and ethical practice are also highlighted, such as self-care, supervision and reflective practice.
Excellent book well structured with good figures and case studies to help students to grasp the concepts of CBT brilliant book for CBT I would definitely recommend this for someone studying CBT.
Perfect overview to CBT model and practice
An excellent and comprehensive guide to CBT theory and practice
Comprehensive account of thepry and technique. Invaluable to the student of counselling and or clinical psychology.
It can get somewhat complicated for the reader.
This book has been a great resource in formulating the CBT Module. I have put it on the recommended reading list.
The information given covers so much of the broader aspects and technicalities of the subject, whilst still being accessible and readable
This is a comprehensive handbook useful for those who are starting to learn about CBT and an equally useful resource for those who have been 'doing it' for a while. Clearly written case studies provide context.
A great introductory text for trainee CBT therapists. It includes a wide variety of extremely credible contributors and includes guidance on the development of many important skills as well as recommendations in dealing with common difficulties and obstacles in therapy.
Lecturing On The CBT Honours Degree Programme
The book addresses all the topics of the course that I will give to master students starting from January 2016.
The book looks very suited and well written, addressing both the theoretical and practical aspects of CBT.
A fantastic book and an essential book for anyone studying this topic
Have opted to go with an older textbook. Not to say this isn't an excellent introductory book but it's just not right for our module this time around.
This is without doubt one of the best books on this subject that is available.Windy Dryden has produced another book that will surely be essential reading for any student/practitioner of CBT. Clearly written, this work takes complex issues and presents them in a simplistic manner so that all will quickly grasp the fundamentals.
This book covers various topics not typically found in other introductory texts on CBT. Chapters on topic areas such as values and ethics in CBT, supervision, multidisciplinary working and CBT help readers to go beyond basic introductory knowledge of CBT.
A nicely constructed text to aid individuals exploring an aspect of the psychosocial interventions spectrum.
Very good book for all levels of learning, providing insight into theory and how theory is then linked to practice.
