Description

This acclaimed text and practitioner reference presents an authoritative overview of major models of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Foremost treatment developers explain core CBT principles and provide a framework for systematic assessment, case conceptualization, and treatment planning. Scholarly yet accessible chapters on each therapy detail what makes the approach unique, which clinical problems it is used to treat, what assessment and intervention tools have been developed, how they are implemented, and what the research reveals about the therapy's effectiveness. Special topics include working with children and adolescents, couples, and culturally diverse clients. The Handbook has been widely adopted in training programs, and the revisions in this edition reinforce its value as a text.

Review quote

"The third edition of this handbook attains the same high standards of scientific rigor, clinical breadth, and practical relevance that have made prior editions so successful and authoritative. Providing a highly informative integration of science and practice, chapters are written by the leading experts on CBT. This volume is a 'must read' for psychotherapy students being introduced to CBT and for practitioners who need a concise, balanced, and informative review of the latest advances."--David A. Clark, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of New Brunswick, Canada
"Even seasoned clinicians would benefit from reading this volume, which reviews CBT's roots and presents current thinking from top practitioners and researchers. Chapters thoroughly introduce cognitive and behavioral methods and provide detailed descriptions of the most prominent therapies. Unlike other CBT books that are organized around specific diagnoses, this book disentangles the treatments from the disorders. Its special strength lies in its broader focus on the processes involved in delivering the very best CBT interventions."--Jerusha Detweiler-Bedell, PhD, Department of Psychology, Lewis & Clark College

"The large body of research testing the effectiveness of CBT is one of the field's strengths. In this volume, Dobson and his colleagues offer an up-to-date, detailed review of CBT research and practice, including valuable new chapters. This volume is an excellent text for graduate courses and will provide clinicians with up-to-date coverage of clinical techniques and their empirical bases."--James Pretzer, PhD, Director, Cleveland Center for Cognitive Therapy

"This extremely well-written volume provides sophisticated coverage of the broad array of cognitive-behavioral therapies. It begins by reviewing the many different strands of CBT and the findings from treatment outcome studies, and offers excellent discussions of case conceptualization and cognitive assessment. These introductory sections form a strong base for chapters on the theory and techniques of the various CBT approaches. Unique strengths include the book's transdiagnostic approach to treatment, its cutting-edge coverage of cognitive science, and the chapters on newer therapies. Highly recommended as a graduate psychotherapy text."--Sheri L. Johnson, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley

"Dobson's revision of this classic volume provides a solid resource for psychologists and students of psychology. Many of us find that we become highly focused on our specific clinical work, teaching, and research, and it is easy to feel out of touch with the broader developments in the field. It is very helpful to pick up a resource such as this one to remind ourselves of the bigger picture in this important and influential treatment approach. Dobson has chosen authors for each topic who are key figures in the development of the approaches covered in their chapters. This choice of authors shows in the quality of the presentations and the familiarity with the key issues in each area....Will be very useful in graduate courses on CBT and in settings where clinical students are supervised. Practitioners and students with an interest in CBT will find it very helpful as a guide to the broad range of approaches and issues in CBT."--Canadian Psychology

"A mainstay in the cognitive behavioral field....The authors have taken an authoritative research-based approach to their writing, providing excellent referencing on all areas. Everything is clear and presented in a well-thought-out format....Provides a sophisticated and intelligent empirical base from which a clinician can base their psychotherapy. This makes this book not only highly recommended for psychology, nurse or research students at graduate level and beyond, but for all therapists who want empirically based up-to-date knowledge on our ever broadening therapy."--Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy "The third edition of this handbook attains the same high standards of scientific rigor, clinical breadth, and practical relevance that have made prior editions so successful and authoritative.
