Is the emotionally disturbed person a victim of forces beyond his awareness, over which he has no control? This is the belief on which neuropsychiatry, psychoanalysis, and behavior therapy are all based. But what if this premise is wrong? What if a person’s psychological difficulties stem from his own erroneous assumptions and faulty concepts of himself and the world? Such a person can be helped to recognize and correct distortions in thinking that cause his emotional disturbance. Now one of the founders of cognitive therapy has written a clear, comprehensive guide to its theory and practice, highlighting such important concepts as: · Learning the meaning of hidden messages · Listening to your automatic thoughts · The role of sadness, anger, and anxiety · Understanding and overcoming phobias and depression · Applying the cognitive system of therapy to specific problems “A book by a significant contributor to our knowledge… immensely readable, logical, and coherent… This is Beck at his best.”—Psychiatry From the Trade Paperback edition.

This bestselling, classic work offers a definitive presentation of the theory and practice of cognitive therapy for depression. Aaron T. Beck and his associates set forth their seminal argument that depression arises from a "cognitive triad" of errors and from the idiosyncratic way that one infers, recollects, and generalizes. From the initial interview to termination, many helpful case examples demonstrate how cognitive-behavioral interventions can loosen the grip of "depressogenic" thoughts and assumptions. Guidance is provided for working with individuals and groups to address the full range of problems that patients face, including suicidal ideation and possible relapse.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is now in use worldwide, while hypnosis as a technique continues to attract serious interest from the professional community. Integrating the two, the field of cognitive hypnotherapy uses the natural trance states of clients to unlock unconscious thoughts and memory patterns that can generate and sustain problems. Cognitive hypnotherapists work within the client’s model of the world, so that changes are more likely to be subconsciously accepted and become permanent. This practical guide shows how cognitive hypnotherapy can be used to treat a range of emotional disorders including depression, sleep disorders, anxiety, eating disorders and PTSD.

A Cognitive Approach to Treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Based on research funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, this manual presents for the first time a purely cognitive approach to treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). This approach avoids the highly distressing exposure component of exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP) that is commonly used to treat the symptoms of OCD. Not only does this cognitive therapy (CT) approach open up the option of psychotherapy to those OCD sufferers who resist exposure-based therapy, it also holds great promise for treating OCD sufferers with mental rituals as well as those who struggle concurrently with depression, anxiety, and other symptoms. The strategies described in this book focus intensively on the intrusive thoughts that can trigger negative beliefs and drive compulsive behaviors. The manual begins with a brief review of current facts about OCD. Then it describes how cognitive therapy can be applied to OCD. The several treatment modules that follow outline a brief three-to-four session approach therapists can use to help clients make real progress on their OCD beliefs and behavioral symptoms. Each module is complemented by a series of client worksheets and handouts. This purely cognitive approach to OCD offers a number of benefits including: CT avoids the discomfort of prolonged exposure and response prevention (ERP) The therapy can be conducted entirely in the therapist's office CT is especially useful for patients with mental rituals and neutralizing strategies The treatment is based on NIMH-funded research and is empirically supported

`It is... particularly useful that main points are summarised in tables, making this a very easy-to-read book. It is evident from the way the material is presented that the authors are experienced therapists, who have a deep understanding of the cognitive therapy process per se and the applications of cognitive theory in general. Case studies are presented throughout the book to illustrate the theory, offering valuable educational material to the readers. The book has also been written with an open mind, providing a balanced overview of both the strengths and limitations of an evidence-based therapeutic model. I believe that it will make a useful source for all those professionals who wish to introduce themselves to cognitive therapy as well as an excellent introductory training textbook' - Accident and Emergency Nursing `This is an excellent summary of the current status of cognitive therapy, describing as it does both the basic approach, tools and techniques of the 'traditional' model, and the more recent developments in the field. It is well organized and easy to read, usefully illustrated with case examples, and each chapter is supported by a specific further reading list. In my view, it is appropriate for both the cognitive therapist in training and for the more experienced therapist who wants a stimulating and helpful summary of the new ideas in the area, and wants to reflect on therapeutic process as much as content' - Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry `This volume should be the first stop for mental health practitioners from all disciplines looking for an introduction to the basic art and ideas of cognitive therapy' - Adrian Wells, Professor in Clinical Psychology, University of Manchester Diana Sanders and Frank Wills explain the central concepts on which cognitive therapy is based and describe how the model can effectively be put into practice. They take the reader through the stages of the therapeutic process, emphasizing the practical skills involved and providing examples to illustrate each stage in the process. Reflecting recent developments in both theory and practice, the Second Edition of Cognitive Therapy has been fully revised and presents an up-to-date picture of how therapeutic change takes place across a 'network' of cognitive, emotional and behavioural functioning, reinforcing the holistic trend identified in the first edition. This edition also features new sections on: - applications of cognitive therapy - metacognition - mindfulness - the therapeutic relationship, and - behavioural experiments. As an accessible introduction to contemporary theory and practice, Cognitive Therapy is an ideal text for those working - or training to work - in the psychological therapies and mental health.

This volume contains examples of how cognitive therapists working in varied settings with groups of adult clients have applied the cognitive model in their domain. Cognitive therapy has much broader application than the traditional area of depression; contributors illustrate the way they work by using extended case material, readers will hear the voices of the clients and empathise with both client and therapist as they seek to build a collaborative relationship. Areas discussed range from drug abuse and eating disorders to obsessive behaviour. Any therapist, however experienced, will learn from `listening in' on the cases presented and students will find it essential reading.

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is arguably the most effective psychotherapy model for children and adolescents with emotional disorders (e.g., anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, trauma and stress-related disorders, etc.). Emotional disorders in youth frequently overlap or co-occur, and yet many of the existing, effective therapies available for children and adolescents with emotional disorders target just one or a smaller subset of these problems. The Unified Protocols for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders in Children and Adolescents, based in groundbreaking research from Jill Ehrenreich-May, David H. Barlow, and colleagues, suggest that there may be a simpler and more efficient method of utilizing effective strategies, such as those commonly included in CBT, in a manner that addresses the broad array of emotional disorder symptoms in children and adolescents. The child and adolescent Unified Protocols do this by framing effective strategies in the general language of strong or intense emotions, more broadly, and by targeting change through a common lens that applies across emotional disorders. Specifically, the child and adolescent Unified Protocols help youth by allowing them to focus on a straightforward goal across emotional disorders: reducing intense negative emotion states by extinguishing the distress and anxiety these emotions produce through emotion-focused education, awareness techniques, cognitive strategies, problem-solving and an array of behavioral strategies, including a full-range of exposure and activation techniques. The Unified Protocol for children and adolescents comprises a Therapist Guide, as well as two Workbooks, one for children, and one for adolescents.
