Overview

If you'd like to assign Mind Over Mood to your clients, but aren't sure about how to incorporate it into practice, you'll find the answers you need in Clinician's Guide to Mind over Mood. This essential companion guide will show you how to introduce Mind Over Mood to your clients, integrate it with your in-session therapy work, increase client compliance in completing home assignments, and overcome common difficulties that may arise. The authors clearly demonstrate how to use Mind Over MooD with individuals, couples, and groups, both in session and at home. Brief therapy and inpatient settings are also discussed in detail.

Step-by-step instructions are provided on how to tailor the program to follow cognitive therapy treatment protocols for a range of diagnoses, including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, panic disorder, substance abuse, and complex, multiple problems. Also outlined are ways to use Mind Over Mood to pinpoint the development of specific cognitive, affective, and behavioral skills.

The volume is richly illustrated with case examples and sample client-therapist dialogues in every chapter. Guidance is offered on how to review home exercises and worksheets in session and how to perform effective guided discovery. The authors also provide a detailed chapter on setting therapy goals. Creative ways for engaging clients who have negative reactions to a manual are described, as are strategies for maintaining collaboration with clients with personality disorders. Each chapter concludes with a "troubleshooting guide," which therapists can use to navigate impasses, and the book itself concludes with an informative chapter on therapist training and Mind Over Mood.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marian L. Fitzgibbon, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is a clinician's guide to using cognitive therapy to address a wide range of psychological problems. The clinician's guide is used by the therapist in tandem with Mind Over Mood: A Cognitive Therapy Treatment Manual for Clients. The clinician's guide describes the specific problems that can be addressed and techniques that can be taught to the patient.
Purpose: The purpose is for the clinician to understand what techniques have proven most helpful in working with different psychological disorders. The book describes specific symptoms of various disorders and specific ways to address the symptoms with cognitive techniques. Given the present state of the field regarding the necessity and cost of psychological intervention, there is a great need to provide specific cognitive and behavioral interventions that address identifiable symptoms of a disorder. In this way, changes in symptomatology and the need for continued treatment can be optimally documented.
Audience: The audience that would most benefit from this book are practitioners in the mental health field. These techniques can be used in individual and group treatment for a wide range of problems including, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and panic disorders. The book would be particularly helpful for those practitioners who work within a time limited model. The clinician has the option to work with the patient to identify overt symptomatology that can be ameliorated, even if the underlying character pathology remains intact.
Features: The book offers the clinician a range of strategies and useful worksheets, inventories, and problem solving lists that help to organize and guide the treatment. It can also help the clinician to organize the patient between sessions. The book also provides useful dialogues between clinician and patient to help the clinician understand pitfalls in implementation of these techniques.
Assessment: This is a useful book for students and clinicians in the mental health field. The book provides very detailed and helpful information for the practicing clinician working with a wide variety of psychological problems. The clinician using this book, however, should be aware that although issues related to the treatment of Axis I and Axis II disorders simultaneously and Axis II disorders alone are discussed, the complexity and pathology that some personality disordered patients present with would make it difficult for them to use many of these techniques. This book presupposes self-regulatory skills and motivation to change that many personality disorder patients do not have.
