'If you can only buy one CBT book, this is the gem you are looking for. An Introduction to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy offers a comprehensive and practical summary of CBT principles, methods and treatment protocols. Experienced clinicians will appreciate the clinically sophisticated case examples which are accompanied by succinct summaries of the conceptual and scientific principles encapsulated in them. At the same time, this text is written so clearly that novice therapists will find it easy to understand and immensely helpful in learning CBT.' Christine A. Padesky, Ph.DCo-author of Collaborative Case Conceptualization and Mind Over Mood
'Cognitive-behavioral therapy has evolved into a large family of theories, models and therapeutic strategies. This text is a very well organised, comprehensive and highly accessible introduction to CBT. The authors' proficient understanding of the breadth and complexity of CBT shines through making this an excellent overview of the current state of knowledge and practice.
There is much to like about this book, but two features came through as particular strengths. First, the text seeks to genuinely enable therapists' understanding, providing how to guides, case examples and route maps to learning. Second, the sections on therapist training and supervision provide a grounded and excellent resource on how to get the most out of training and supervision. This book will help unlock CBT therapists' full potential to help their clients.'Professor Willem Kuyken Mood Disorders Centre
