The Case Formulation Approach to Cognitive-Behavior Therapyby Jacqueline B. Persons
Pub. Date: 08/14/2008
Publisher: Guilford Publications, Inc.
This book addresses a critical challenge in evidence-based psychotherapy: how to use empirically supported therapies (ESTs) in real-world clinical contexts. The author explains the basic theories of cognition, learning, and emotion that underlie available ESTs and shows how the theories also guide systematic case formulation. By crafting a sound formulation and continually refining and monitoring it as treatment progresses, the therapist can smoothly "shift theoretical gears" and weave together elements of different ESTs to meet the needs of individual patients, who typically present with multiple problems. Hands-on tools, reproducibles, and many concrete examples are included.
This title is part of the Guides to Individualized Evidence-Based Treatment Series, edited by Jacqueline B. Persons.
