Product description

The leading text for students and practicing therapists who want to learn the fundamentals of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), this book is eminently practical and authoritative. In a highly accessible, step-by-step style, master clinician Judith S. Beck demonstrates how to engage patients, develop a sound case conceptualization, plan treatment, and structure sessions effectively. Core cognitive, behavioral, and experiential techniques are explicated and strategies are presented for troubleshooting difficulties and preventing relapse. An extended case example and many vignettes and transcripts illustrate CBT in action. Seven reproducible clinical tools can also be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size (www.guilford.com/p/beck4). New to this edition: * reflects over 15 years of research advances and the author's ongoing experience as a clinician, teacher, and supervisor * chapters on the evaluation session and behavioral activation * increased emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, building on patients' strengths, and homework * now even more practical: features reproducibles and a sample case write-up. This book will be invaluable to clinicians and graduate students in all of the mental health disciplines, including clinical psychology, social work, psychiatry, and counseling. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level CBT and psychotherapy courses.

Review quote

"Anyone who wants to find out about Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and how to apply it in practice need look no further. The second edition of Beck's excellent, bestselling book provides an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to delivering the various elements of CBT. The book offers a comprehensive introduction for those new to CBT, with illustrative case examples throughout; it is also an essential resource for experienced cognitive therapists who want to brush up on their knowledge and skills. It should definitely be a core text in every CBT training program." - Alison Brabban, Durham University, UK "When I want students to learn how to conduct cognitive therapy, Cognitive Therapy: Basics and Beyond is the first book I assign. Before I assigned this book for the first time, I reread it to make certain it was as useful as I remembered. It was - and to my surprise, I even found that many of what I had come to think of as my own special insights in training supervisees were actually right there on the page. When students have mastered this text, Judith Beck's Cognitive Therapy for Challenging Problems is a natural (and useful) next step." - Thomas L. Rodebaugh, Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, USA
