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.

Over the past decade, cognitive therapy principles originally developed for outpatients have been successfully adapted for use with more severely ill, hospitalized patients. Noted for its cogent theoretical formulations, replicable procedures, and documentation of outcome--all features that are highly desirable on inpatient units--cognitive therapy also has the advantage of a short-term format, a critical factor in the face of escalating health care costs. COGNITIVE THERAPY WITH INPATIENTS, the first volume to describe the development of a "cognitive milieu," is a practical manual that describes effective cognitive strategies and procedures for short-term psychiatric hospitalization. The book begins with an overview of the basic concepts of cognitive therapy and hospital psychiatry. Detailed instructions are given for developing and maintaining different types of inpatient cognitive therapy units. Using a "step-by-step" approach, the authors demonstrate how the cognitive milieu can be adapted to fit the needs of a wide variety of treatment settings. Extensive illustrations, including actual dialogued of treatment interactions, are used to describe interventions. Pragmatic advice is given for application in individual, group, and family formats. The volume also offers indepth coverage of the theoretical and practical issues involved in combining cognitive therapy with pharmacotherapy. Asserting that the fusion of these models enhances both forms of treatment--and stressing the importance of interdisciplinary teamwork in effective hospital care--the book describes methods of building effective treatment teams and devotes particular attention to the functions of psychiatric nurses. Techniques are identified for maximizing the chances of good outcome while minimizing the risk of relapse. In addition, special applications for treatment of adolescent inpatients, alcohol and substance abuse, eating disorders, geropsychiatry, and chronic patients are discussed. Designed as a treatment guide for all professionals who work in hospital settings, this unique volume is a valuable resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, and nurses. It also serves as a text for graduate courses in cognitive therapy, psychiatry residency training programs, psychology doctoral programs, and graduate programs in psychiatric nursing.

Cognitive therapy is fast becoming one of the more popular and well respected forms of psychotherapy. In both research and clinical practice, several advantages of cognitive therapy have been identified. Cognitive therapy is structured enough to provide a therapeutic framework for clinicians, as well as a theoretical framework for clinical researchers, yet flexible enough to address an individual's problems in a highly idio syncratic manner. Accompanying the popularity of cognitive therapy is the expansion of its application beyond the areas in which it was initially developed and validated (the "traditional" areas of depression and anx iety) to areas where validation has not yet occurred (the "nontraditional" areas). We strongly believe that such broadening of cognitive therapy should be encouraged, but that conceptual models to guide the therapist and researcher in these areas should be explicated. It is the purpose of this text to provide a conceptual framework for dealing with select, nontraditional populations. The idea and motivation for this text develops from a cognitive therapy interest group in Toronto. All of the authors contributing to this text are involved in this group. We represent a group of cognitive thera pists functioning in a variety of diverse settings, including clinical re search units, general hospital settings, private or public rehabilitation centers, and private practices. Thus, the diversity of referrals for cogni tive therapy within our group is great.
