Overview

Developmental Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Adults outlines a new cognitive therapy approach that combines existing CBT theory and strategies with a lifespan developmental psychopathology perspective. The major focus is on the relationship between mastery of normative psychosocial developmental tasks and mental health. Primary targets for therapy are maladaptive developmental variations or pathways that have significantly disrupted or decelerated the client's ability to cope with normal adult tasks and challenges. This new approach offers an additional developmental phase of assessment and treatment, which addresses inadequate resolution of normative psychosocial developmental tasks and transitions of earlier life stages in the client's life.

The book offers mental health professionals 24 new Developmental CBT assessment and therapy strategies designed to address client difficulties with normal adult developmental tasks, as well as chronic maladaptive pathways maintaining these difficulties. These practical strategies are demonstrated with a wide spectrum of client developmental task difficulties in occupational, social, and family functioning. The clinical examples provide a deeper understanding of pathways to competence, as well as pathways to deviance, and the contrast between normal and atypical processes as they emerge at different developmental periods. The book makes significant contributions to the expanding fields of both clinical lifespan developmental psychopathology and cognitive therapy. It serves as an excellent reference and practical guide for mental health professionals in psychology, psychiatry, social work, and other disciplines.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In these times of increasing longevity and increasing lifespan, Developmental Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Adults is a breath of fresh air with regard to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for middle-age and older age adults....Each chapter is packed with useful information that not only sets the required background for working with individuals across the life span but also indicates how these strategies can be invoked and employed. This is an excellent book that would make an excellent reference for those working with any segment of the developmental population from birth to later adulthood. This book is also appropriate for students with similar interests and could even serve as a graduate-level text. Zarb has the necessary background (30+ years as a therapist) and that makes the book even more accessible and readable." - F. Richard Ferraro, in PsycCRITIQUES, Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books
