Overview

Since the publication of Aaron Beck's Cognitive Therapy in 1967, cognitive therapy has established itself as one of the principal means of treating depression. Its applications are, however, much wider, and it is being used in an increasingly broad range of

clinical situations--from drug abuse and eating disorders to obsessive behavior. Cognitive Therapy in Clinical Practice discusses the use of cognitive therapy in these and other contexts. It combines an overview of the state of the art with case studies that demonstrate the

particular applications of cognitive therapy. Readers will hear the voices of the clients and empathize with both client and therapist as they seek to build a collaborative relationship.

Any therapist, however experienced, will learn from `listening in' on the case studies

presented and, for students of psychology, it will be essential reading.
