One of the hallmarks of cognitive behavior therapy is its diversity: today, a variety of approaches and methods fall under this heading. But even with all this variety, no one method works for all problems, or all clients, all the time. The Encyclopedia of Cognitive Behavior Therapy brings the best of the CBT spectrum into practical perspective, distilling decades of clinical wisdom into one authoritative volume. Entries in the Encyclopedia are written by noted experts (including Arthur Freeman, Windy Dryden, Marsha Linehan, Edna Foa, and Thomas Ollendick), and review the latest empirical data on first-line therapies and combination approaches, to give readers both insights into clients' problem beliefs and proven advice on treatment: Common disorders and conditions: anxiety, depression, OCD, phobias, sleep disturbance, eating disorders, grief, anger; Essential components of treatment: the therapeutic relationship, case formulation, homework, relapse prevention; Treatment methods: dialectical behavior therapy, REBT, paradoxical interventions, social skills training, stress inoculation, play therapy, CBT/medicine combinations; Applications of CBT with specific populations: children, adolescents, couples, dually diagnosed clients, the elderly, veterans, refugees; Emerging problems: Internet addiction, chronic pain, narcolepsy, pathological gambling. All entries feature reference lists and are cross-indexed. The Encyclopedia of Cognitive Behavior Therapy capably fills practitioners' and educators' needs for an idea book, teaching text, or quick access to practical, workable interventions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Readers interested in gaining information on ‘mainstream’ cognitive behavior theory (CBT) topics … will not be disappointed. However, the diversity of topics covered is broad enough that those interested in topics outside the mainstream are not likely to be disappointed either. Even seasoned CBT clinicians and researchers are likely to find applications of CBT in this volume that are new to them. … it provides information of interest to a wide range of readers – from novices to experts." (Christina S. McCrea, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 51 (8), 2006)

"Cognitive Behavior therapy (CBT) has been reported to be among the most widely practiced therapy techniques in the United States. … At approximately 450 pages, the encyclopedia is concise in size, yet comprehensive in scope. … A list of references for further research is provided at the end of every article. … it provides an excellent and broad overview and would fit the needs of students, therapists, or patients who wish to learn more about the applications of cognitive behavior therapy." (Lorraine Evans, ARBA online, March, 2007)
