Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Ledley and her esteemed colleagues have packed even more pearls of clinical wisdom into their second edition of this truly important book. It is filled with case examples, illustrative dialogues, hints, and suggestions to help clinicians sidestep potential pitfalls and enable their clients to benefit maximally from CBT. The material on how to make good use of supervision and continue to grow as a therapist is what clinched it for me--this book is required reading in my course on CBT for anxiety disorders."--Jonathan S. Abramowitz, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"I wish this kind of clinical resource had been available when I was a doctoral student learning CBT! This book covers it all--ethics, theory, case formulation, supervision, therapy, follow-up documentation, and professional development. A wonderful resource for the psychotherapist-in-training or for the experienced practitioner new to CBT methods. Most highly recommended as a classroom or practicum textbook."--Bruce A. Thyer, PhD, LCSW, College of Social Work, Florida State University

"This book will be immensely helpful to young clinicians attempting to master the structure and processes of CBT, from the scheduling of the first visit to the final booster session. Leading CBT therapists with years of clinical and supervisory experience provide extremely clear and practical suggestions in the context of real-world clinical vignettes. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to become a CBT therapist."--Neil A. Rector, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Toronto, Canada 

"This book astutely anticipates the challenges of clinical practice, demystifies the process of therapy, and fully prepares the novice clinician. Combining a matter-of-fact tone with illuminating case examples, the book is bound to instill confidence in the beginning therapist. This is an essential text for any course on CBT. The second edition incorporates the latest empirical research on therapy process and includes a helpful epilogue on continued growth as a therapist."--Christine Purdon, PhD, CPsych, Department of Psychology, University of Waterloo, Canada
