Learning Cognitive-Behavior Therapy An Illustrated Guide
CBT is an evidence-based treatment method that has proven successful in treating patients who have coexisting anxiety disorders and depression. Additionally, CBT may be beneficial for those with chronic medical conditions that prevent them from taking psychotropic medications as part of their ongoing care plan. This comprehensive clinical skills book provides training to both mental health trainees and practicing clinicians so they can become proficient in this effective treatment approach.
This text utilizes a “read-see-do” approach, providing readers with an accessible and effective way to learn the core principles and techniques of CBT. It includes informative text, figures, charts, worksheets, checklists, tables, and video illustrations designed to help readers develop essential CBT skills. The new edition includes 23 all-new videos featuring leading practitioners demonstrating techniques in real world settings.
This practical guide is written for clinical practitioners and students in psychiatry, psychology, counseling, nursing, social work and medicine. It will be especially beneficial to those new to CBT – such as mental health trainees and lay counselors – as well as trainers at academic institutions.
