"This book will be an invaluable tool for mental health professionals working in inpatient settings, and will hopefully inspire people to increase access to such approaches and conduct the research required to firmly establish the evidence base." – Anthony P. Morrison, From the foreword.
"Isabel Clarke and Hannah Wilson have addressed the difficult political, strategic and organisational issues, which limit the availability of CBT and related psychological therapies in inpatient settings. In doing so, they draw upon on a broad evidence base, a depth of clinical experience, and self-reflective and compassionate commitment to an often marginalised group of service users and a frequently demoralised group of mental health staff." - Andrew Gumley, Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology, University of Glasgow, UK
"Isabel Clarke and Hannah Wilson are to be congratulated for providing an informative and timely text on applying approaches based on cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) to acute inpatient mental health units.. This is essential reading for those providing training to staff in acute care services." - Graham Sloan, Nursing Standard, Vol. 23, No. 12, November 26, 2008
"Overall, this book draws together the voices of clinical and research psychologists, nurses, occupational therapists and service users in a practical and enthusiastic guide to the successes, challenges and realities of CBT in such a setting. For anyone contemplating or already trying to bring CBT to inpatient settings, this book is an invaluable resource." – Emese Csipke, Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy, 37, 2009
"Since we purchased a copy of this book for our library, it has rarely sat on the shelves. In fact it proved so popular and the feedback from readers was so positive that we decided to invest in the electronic version... Our copy of this book has been read by a wide range of staff from psychologists to nurses to service managers. Readers can relate to it because it has been written by other NHS professionals and offers real life accounts of CBT in inpatient settings through first hand experience." - Lorna Burns, Journal of Mental Health, Vol. 19 No. 1, Feb 2010
