Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marlene S. Foreman, BSN, MN (Hospice of Acadiana, Inc.)
Description: This book describes the use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with patients with chronic illness or in palliative care. It includes many activities, tools, and explanations to assist therapists and clients. The information sheets and records forms are valuable additions.
Purpose: The book is intended for readers who are just learning the skills as well as seasoned counselors. The purpose of the therapy is to help patients recognize distorted thinking patterns and dysfunctional behavior that interferes with meeting their life goals. This book is a valuable asset to these readers and for those in hospice and palliative care. I have been able to use this book in my personal and professional life as a hospice nurse.
Audience: This book is written for students, practitioners, and others who may use CBT or may need to use some of the information to manage people with disordered thinking. This is a valuable resource for social workers, counselors, nurses, and pastoral care personnel, as well as bereavement counselors. It provides useful information for all professionals who counsel patients and families with psychosocial issues. The authors are a talented group and demonstrate their expertise throughout the book.
Features: Part one of the three parts is the workbook, which describes basic principles of the cognitive behavioral approach in attempting to change behavior. Activities at the end of each chapter allow readers to apply the lessons learned. Part two, the issues, identifies and describes techniques for using CBT to alter behavior of patients with life limiting illnesses. Part three, the toolkit, provides forms and information sheets useful for practitioners to begin working with their patients. I found the tables, illustrations, and information sheets especially useful to understand how to apply what I learned. There is an extensive reference list, although some of the references are older than 2000. The book seems quite complete, and social workers in my institution, including one who has extensive experience with CBT, are eager to read it.
Assessment: This is a valuable resource for counselors and other professionals working with patients and families in palliative and hospice care. It is very thorough, with clear explanations of the approach, uses, and techniques to assist patients or families in changing behavior so that they may better manage their illnesses and meet their life goals. The explanations are thorough and excellent. Part two allows practitioners to assess a problem, determine coping strategies, and assess improvement, and includes specific information to be given to the persons they are working with. I look forward to using the information presented here. I would purchase this and any future editions.
