    James Bennett-Levy, PhD, is Associate Professor at the University Center for Rural Health, University of Sydney, Australia. He has pioneered self-experiential CBT training since his first self-practice/self-reflection (SP/SR) paper in 2001, and has made a significant contribution to the CBT training literature with over 25 training publications. In particular, his 2006 Declarative-Procedural-Reflective model of therapist skill development is widely used and cited. Dr. Bennett-Levy is coauthor or coeditor of several books on CBT practice, including, most recently, the" Oxford Guide to Imagery in Cognitive Therapy." Richard Thwaites, DClinPsy, is a consultant clinical psychologist and CBT therapist who serves as Clinical Lead for a large National Health Service psychological therapies service in the United Kingdom. In addition to delivering therapy, he provides clinical leadership, supervision, training, and consultancy around the implementation of SP/SR programs. His research interests include the role of the therapeutic relationship in CBT and the use of reflective practice in the process of skill development. Beverly Haarhoff, PhD, a clinical psychologist, is Senior Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Massey University, Auckland, New Zealand, where she was instrumental in setting up the first Postgraduate Diploma in CBT in the southern hemisphere. For the past 14 years she has trained and supervised both CBT and clinical psychology trainees. Her research has focused primarily SP/SR as a mechanism to support and improve therapist skill acquisition in CBT therapists at all levels of development. Dr. Haarhoff has a private clinical practice and regularly presents CBT training workshops. Helen Perry, MA, is Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the University of Sydney and a clinical psychologist in private practice. She played a key role in creating the CBT Diploma program at Massey University and is an active CBT trainer and supervisor. She served as Project Manager for a research study focusing on online CBT training and coauthored two papers in this area. Ms. Perry has worked across the lifespan in a wide range of clinical settings. Her special interests are in complex/comorbid depression and anxiety, and trauma- and stress-related disorders.
    Review quote
    "This terrific book places direct personal experience of CBT right at the heart of the training process. SP/SR has been an enduring passion for Bennett-Levy and his international team of authors for more than 15 years, and this steady commitment shines through in the book's integration of clearly explained theory, recourse to evidence, and lucidly designed and written practical modules. Encouraging us to apply CBT concepts and methods to ourselves, the book highlights our common humanity--because we and our patients have the same imperfect human minds, and we too can liberate ourselves from unhelpful old patterns in just the same way. A radical and refreshing approach!"--Melanie Fennell, PhD, Oxford Mindfulness Centre, Oxford University Department of Psychiatry, United Kingdom "For years, we have been practicing and teaching CBT from the outside in: theoretical underpinnings, procedures, protocols, and techniques. At long last, we have a book that enhances CBT practice through a systematic process of self-practice and self-reflection. The authors have done an exceptional job of fostering an experiential journey through which understanding of the therapist's self and of patients can be developed via an emphasis on process, strengths, and culture. This book should be read by all CBT practitioners and trainers."--Chee-Wing Wong, PsychD, Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology, The Chinese University of Hong Kong "This workbook skillfully and compassionately walks mental health trainees and experienced practitioners alike through the steps of applying the evidence-based practices of CBT on themselves for professional and personal growth. Using well-crafted written and experiential exercises, Bennett-Levy et al. help the reader to recognize self-limiting 'old ways of being' and to develop and maintain 'new ways of being.' The result is an increase in empathy for clients who struggle with the therapeutic process (which is arduous!), and an enhanced congru
