    Back cover copy
    The treatment of physical health problems is increasingly supplemented by psychological therapy, particularly in connection with long term treatment and the management of chronic or intractable problems. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is now recognised as the most effective approach for a wide range of mental and physical disorders, e.g. the treatment of anxiety/depressive disorders, management of pain and treatment of the psychological problems associated with cancer. Although there are other books available on CBT for mental health problems and some which focus more generally on psychological management aspects of medical problems, this is the first to provide a general introduction to the methods and clincial application of CBT for the problems experienced by patients with chronic pain, cardiac disorders, surgical problems, diabetes, cancer and skin problems. This book outlines how cognitive behavioural assessment, formulation and intervention strategies can be tailored to chronic medical problems. Formulation diagrams and extracts from treatment sessions are included. Professional and service development issues are covered in separate chapters. Some helpful self report measures are included as Appendices. "Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Chronic Medical Problems" is a concise and accessible clinical text. It assumes some basic knowledge and practical experience of CBT and enables the reader to understand and tailor their practice to the needs of physically ill patients. ""Dr White has written an exceptional book. With a solid theoretical basis, this clearly written and useful book does an impressive job of instructing the reader in formulating cases at a macro and micro level and in using this formulation to plan therapy and select interventions for patients with various chronic medical problems. Even clinicians that primarily do not treat medical patients will benefit from studying this book."" Dr Judith S. Beck, Director, The Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research, Philadelphia, USA, and Clinical Associate Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania, USA.
