Overview

Since its development in the 1960s as a structured, short-term psychotherapy for depression, cognitive therapy has come of age. Today the approach is successfully applied in the treatment of a broad range of psychological disorders, an evolution reflected in the myriad titles now available. Regardless of the disorder, all these applications are based on core, underlying principles, which are clearly articulated in this volume. Providing readers with a solid foundation for practice, Cognitive Therapy: Basics and Beyond delineates the fundamental building blocks of cognitive conceptualization and treatment.

Written in a clear, step-by-step style, this text helps therapists sharpen their conceptualization skills, plan more effective treatment, expand their repertoire of techniques, and trouble-shoot difficulties. Throughout the volume, the author offers clinical examples and transcripts drawn from one patient's treatment to illuminate the narrative and illustrate cognitive therapy in action.

Introductory chapters describe how to conceptualize clients according to the cognitive model, plan and conduct the first session, identify initial problems and goals, and structure therapy within and across sessions. Then the basic steps for conducting cognitive therapy are presented, with specific instruction on how to identify, evaluate, and respond to a client's automatic thoughts. Effective strategies for modifying underlying assumptions and core beliefs are also explicated.

Methods for increasing homework compliance, preparing for termination, and preventing relapse are laid out. Even experienced cognitive therapists will find new strategies and insights in chapters on planning treatment, diagnosing problems, using imagery, and bringing about behavioral change.

In addition to numerous practical suggestions, this volume features a variety of sample patient worksheets and appendices that detail resource materials and reading lists for both the practitioner and the client. A final chapter offers guidance in progressing as a cognitive therapist.

An important resource for any therapist's shelf, Cognitive Therapy: Basics and Beyond is necessary reading for the practitioner or student new to cognitive therapy who wants to learn about this tested approach, and for the clinician already practicing cognitive therapy who wants to learn the cutting-edge strategies of conceptualization and treatment.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Dr. Beck has provided a clearly written description of cognitive therapy, with helpful examples, that fills a need in the process of teaching and training students of cognitive therapy."--James L. Shenk, PhD, California School of Professional Psychology, course: Individual Psychotherapy: Cognitive

"A superb textbook that fully realizes the promise of its title....This is essential reading for any student or therapist new to cognitive therapy, but even experienced therapists will find the author's ideas a rich source for enhanced skill-building." --Riki Koenigsberg, PhD in Readings

"This is a most useful manual for beginning students and clinicians in mental health professions. Its emphasis on the pragmatics of cognitive therapy makes it a valuable tool for therapy educators and supervisors. Among the existing books on cognitive therapy that emphasize its theoretical foundations, this stands out as a concise, practical guide.****"--Sara J. Knight, PhD, Northwestern University Medical Schools

"Judith Beck has written an uncommonly useful text both for therapists who want to learn about the concepts and procedures of cognitive therapy as well as for those involved in clinical teaching and supervision. All too often the phrase cognitive therapy' is applied to any effort at helping people construe their world in more productive ways. But it is more subtle and more complex than simply telling a person to stop thinking in a particular way. This lucid, informative book makes the job of understanding cognitive therapy and how to apply it a good deal clearer and easier. I look forward to assigning it to my graduate students."--Gerald C. Davison, PhD, Dean and Professor of Psychology, Annenberg School for Communication, Univ of Southern California; Past President, Assoc for Advancement of Behavior Therapy

"A practical, no-nonsense text that is extremely conprehensive and reader-friendly. Throughout the book, Ms. Beck offers clinical examples taken from actual transcripts of therapy sessions that clearly and practically illustrate each technique and concept...an important, timely, and valuable resource for psychiatric professionals who engage in formal cognitive behavioral therapy or who practice cognitive behavioral techniques in other contexts. This text provides a clarity of conceptualization and a review of techniques that will prove extremely useful to students as well as experienced therapists. This volume certainly will serve as the basic text for cognitive behavioral therapists and should be necessary reading for psychiatric professionals."--D. Thomas Blair in Journal of Psychosocial Nursing

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sara J. Knight, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This text is an introductory treatment manual covering the practice of cognitive therapy. It describes conceptualization and method, process and structure, adjunctive cognitive behavioral techniques, common application problems, and therapist training issues. Judith Beck, PhD, is a highly credible author. She is the daughter of Aaron T. Beck, MD, the founder of cognitive therapy, and a highly respected cognitive therapy practitioner and educator in her own right.
Purpose: Dr. Beck's purpose in this work is to inform the beginning therapist about cognitive concepts, methods and process. She also aims to strengthen the experienced therapist's ability to understand cases and treatment from a cognitive perspective. The book's emphasis on the pragmatics and application of cognitive therapy supplement existing foundation works on this therapeutic system.
Audience: Intended for graduate students in the mental health professions, this work will provide an excellent resource for teaching and supervision. The advanced therapist will find that the book provides an excellent review of problems and issues in the practice of cognitive therapy.
Features: Throughout the text, Dr. Beck uses illustrations and supplemental materials. Therapy transcripts exemplify therapist and patient interaction. Diagrams depict models of patient and treatment process. Highlighted boxes summarize key concepts. Appendixes offer sample forms and resource lists. The table of contents and index are clear and well organized. The reference list is focused toward essential work in cognitive therapy, yet includes citations representing a wide range of clinical applications.
Assessment: This is a most useful manual for beginning students and clinicians in mental health professions. Its emphasis on the pragmatics of cognitive therapy makes it a valuable tool for therapy educators and supervisors. Among the existing books on cognitive therapy that emphasize its theoretical foundations, this stands out as a concise, practical guide.

    I Also Recommend:

    For Mental Health Professionals

    This is a graduate level textbook and a book for those in the mental health field. This is not a self-help book and I cannot emphasize that enough. I find that this book does not read like most graduate level textbooks, it reads like a regular book. Judith Beck is the daughter of Aaron Beck, one of the creators of Cognitive Therapy. It is one thing to know the concepts and theories behind Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and another to know how to use it. This book is the closest to actually practicing and doing CBT. It has vignettes (dialogue) of what therapy may be like and chapters of what sessions should be like. Judith Beck recommends closely following the book for beginners and then after getting "the hang of it", tweaking it and varying from it depending on the individual the therapist is counseling. This book provides samples of sessions and homework samples. I highly recommend this book for mental health professionals. For those in the counseling field, this book is a must for those about to start practicing CBT. This will be in my permanent library. Note: My peers have mentioned that the "client" used in this book may not be very representative of most clients and most clients may be harder to treat but overall great way to learn CBT.

    A must read for every counselor

    Beck gives an excellent explanation of Cognitive Therapy from case conceptualization to professional developnment as a cognitive therapist. The reading lists and resources provided in the Appendices is worth the price of the book!

    As a new therapist completing my Practicum I find this book invaluable.
