From the Publisher'This is an essential resource both for students of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and qualified cognitive behavioural therapists.
The book is organised in five parts that (logically) cover theory, practice. common challenges, specific populations, settings and core professional issues. Student CBT practitioners will find the first three sections invaluable. More seasoned practitioners might dip into parts four and five to explore the use of CBT in different settings and with different client groups, from children to private practice to self-care and reflective practice. For practitioners working in other modalities, the book is a well-referenced and substantial introduction.
The handbook is better than similar publications that attempt to provide this comprehensive resource. It is clearly written and jargon-free; the contributors demonstrate considerable knowledge and experience in their respective specialist fields. It was also very refreshing to find chapters on ethics and supervision, which are often left out of books of this kind.
I really enjoyed the book, gained new knowledge of benefit to my own practice, and would recommend it as a first point of reference for practitioners on CBT theory and its many applications' - Therapy Today
