Overview


At the forefront of the cognitive revolution, renowned psychiatrist Aaron T. Beck turned to information processing in order to understand the sources, consequences, and cures of anxiety disorders and phobias. In the first half of this classic text, Beck elaborates on the clinical picture of anxiety disorders and phobias and presents an explanatory model to account for the rich complexity of these phenomena. Cognitive psychologist Gary Emery then details the therapeutic principles, strategies, and tactics developed on the basis of the cognitive model of anxiety disorders and phobias.This fifteenth anniversary edition of the foundational work on cognitive therapy features a new introduction by Beck, in which he offers an up-to-date appraisal of the current state of cognitive therapy and its application to the treatment of phobias and anxiety.

Review of theoretical/clinical aspects & theraputic applications of the principles of cognitive therapy.

    Too much like a textbook - not for novices

    I bought this book thinking that it would give the origins of anxiety disorders, and phobias from the beginner's (novice's) point of view. This is written like a graduate school text book, very difficult to understand unless you are familar with these techniques and have gone to school for psychology. I earned a college degree a few years back - but this was still way over my head. Very disappointing - dry and clinical in nature.
