This groundbreaking book explains the "whats" and "how-tos" of metacognitive therapy (MCT), an innovative form of cognitive-behavioral therapy with a growing empirical evidence base. MCT developer Adrian Wells shows that much psychological distress results from how a person responds to negative thoughts and beliefs?for example, by ruminating or worrying?rather than the content of those thoughts. He presents practical techniques and specific protocols for addressing metacognitive processes to effectively treat generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive?compulsive disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and major depression. Special features include reproducible treatment plans and assessment and case formulation tools, plus a wealth of illustrative case material.

Metacognitive therapy is based on the principle that worry and rumination are universal processes leading to emotional disorder. These processes are linked to erroneous beliefs about thinking and unhelpful self-regulation strategies. Metacognitive Therapy: Distinctive Features is an introduction to the theoretical foundations and therapeutic principles of metacognitive therapy. Divided into two sections, Theory and Practice and using thirty key points, the authors explore how metacognitive therapy can allow people to escape from repetitive thinking patterns that often lead to prolonged psychological distress. This book is a valuable resource for both students and practitioners wishing to develop a basic understanding of metacognitive therapy and how it compares and contrasts with traditional forms of cognitive behavioural therapy.

The effective treatment of anorexia nervosa (AN) remains a significant challenge. This has prompted new research into ways of engaging and keeping patients in treatment and ultimately achieving better outcomes, not only on a symptomatic level but also in broader aspects of life. In this book Kate Tchanturia brings together international experts from the field of eating disorders to discuss the effectiveness of cognitive remediation therapy for treating anorexia nervosa, and keeping patients in therapy. Cognitive Remediation Therapy (CRT) is a type of therapy that concentrates on improving neurocognitive abilities such as attention, working memory, cognitive flexibility and planning, and executive functioning which leads to improved general functioning. Recent research has demonstrated the effectiveness of the approach for treating those with anorexia nervosa, cognitive improvements have been noted in patients, and the approach is associated with low drop-out rates from the treatment, and high levels of acceptability among both patients and therapists. This book presents research focussing on: - individual therapy with adults - family-based therapy - CRT with young people - group format of CRT - adapting interventions for people with co-morbidities - clinicians experiences working with CRT Illustrated throughout with case studies, and integrating neuropsychological testing and brain imaging this book discusses the latest research on this novel treatment approach. It will be key reading for researchers and academics in the eating disorders field wanting to trial the approach, as well as final year undergraduates and postgraduate clinical psychology students looking for a new perspective.

CBT is the most widely endorsed Evidence Based Treatment (EBT) for psychological disorders. This innovative volume exclusively addresses CBT Supervision, which plays a vital role in the translation of CBT from an EBT to routine practise. Supervision requires a combination of knowledge and skill – the knowledge of the appropriate CBT protocol for the situation and the skill to equip the practitioner with the competencies to deliver these protocols in the context in which they are operating. In Simply Effective CBT Supervision, Michael J. Scott provides a unique guide to the particular skills necessary to monitor the fidelity and competence with which an EBT is implemented. There is an emphasis throughout on the importance of experiential learning, with detailed transcripts of supervisor-supervisee conversations, a focus on group supervision and the management of group processes. The power differential between supervisor and supervisee is acknowledged and addressed with guidelines and safeguards that will ensure that client needs can be addressed in a spirit of collaborative empiricism, and the text also covers the importance of matching the supervisor and supervisee. The book also incorporates downloadable worksheets for supervisor and supervisee. Covering the skills necessary to be an effective CBT supervisor, this is the ideal book for current and prospective CBT supervisors looking to extend their knowledge base.

Dieses erste deutschsprachige Buch zur „Metakognitiven Therapie“ stellt den neuen Ansatz und seine Techniken vor. Wells zeigt, dass emotionaler Stress weniger durch die Inhalte von Gedanken entsteht als vielmehr durch die Art und Weise, wie Menschen auf negative Gedanken und Glaubenssätze reagieren (z. B. durch Grübeln oder Sich-Sorgen). Das Ziel der metakognitiven Therapie ist daher, mehr Abstand zu den eigenen gedanklichen Prozessen einzunehmen. Dargestellt werden theoretische Grundlagen und die Anwendung des Verfahrens bei den häufigsten psychischen Störungen: Ängste (Generalisierte Angststörung, PTSD, Zwangsstörungen) und Depression.

This is the first book of its kind to include the personal accounts of people who have survived injury to the brain, along with professional therapists' reports of their progress through rehabilitation. The paintings and stories of survivors combine with experts' discussions of the theory and practice of brain injury rehabilitation to illustrate the ups and downs that survivors encounter in their journey from pre-injury status to insult and post-injury rehabilitation. Wilson, Winegardner and Ashworth's focus on the survivors' perspective shows how rehabilitation is an interactive process between people with brain injury, health care staff, and others, and gives the survivors the chance to tell their own stories of life before their injury, the nature of the insult, their early treatment, and subsequent rehabilitation. Presenting practical approaches to help survivors of brain injury achieve functionally relevant and meaningful goals, Life After Brain Injury: Survivors’ Stories will help all those working in rehabilitation understand the principles involved in holistic brain injury rehabilitation and how these principles, combined with theory and models, translate into clinical practice. This book will be of great interest to anyone who wishes to extend their knowledge of the latest theories and practices involved in making life more manageable for people who have suffered damage to the brain. Life After Brain Injury: Survivors’ Stories will also be essential for clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, and anybody dealing with acquired brain injury whether they be a survivor of a brain injury themselves, a relative, a friend or a carer.

Die Leitlinien zur Unipolaren Depression beruhen auf empirischer Evidenz und Expertenkonsens und stellen damit einen Handlungsrahmen für Ärztinnen und Ärzte dar, um Diagnostik und Therapie nach den Regeln der Kunst zu gestalten. Auf der einen Seite sollen sie Ärztinnen und Ärzte nicht binden, auf der anderen Seite drücken Leitlinien aber doch eine gewisse Verbindlichkeit aus. Zu den Aufgaben der medizinisch-wissenschaftlichen Fachgesellschaften gehört es nicht nur Leitlinien zu entwickeln, sondern auch ihren Praxistransfer zu gewährleisten.
