Overview

Behavioural experiments are one of the central and most powerful methods of intervention in cognitive therapy. To be successful, they require creativity and sophisticated understanding on the part of the therapist. Yet until now, there has been no comprehensive text to guide clinicians wishing to design behavioural experiments across a wide range of clinical problems. The Oxford Guide to Behavioural Experiments in Cognitive Therapy has been written by clinicians for clinicians to fill this gap. It is designed as a practical, easy-to-read handbook, which can be studied in detail or dipped into in the few minutes prior to seeing a patient. Its 21 chapters cover problem areas, ranging from those which have traditionally been the focus of cognitive therapy (e.g. depression, anxiety disorders) through to areas in their relative infancy (e.g. psychosis, physical health problems, low self-esteem). Containing examples of over 200 behavioural experiments, The Oxford Guide is a book that cognitive therapists at all levels of experience will want on their bookshelves to provide inspiration, ideas, and guidance.
