What People are Saying About This

William C. Sanderson

There are several good introductory books on cognitive-behavior therapy. However, students learning the approach frequently complain that they are still lacking the how to. Thus, Learning Cognitive-Behavior Therapy is an invaluable addition to the literature in its unique offering, integrating video demonstrations and personal exercises with the text to faciliate learning the core strategies. This allows students to see and experience the practice of cognitive-behavior therapy.

John H. Riskind

This book by Wright, Basco, and Thase is a particularly useful book for the training of cognitive therapists. A particularly notable feature is the integration of video demonstrations on DVD of the cognitive techniques into the textual material. Doctoral students, psychiatrists in residency, and other professionals who want to learn cognitive therapy will find the book of these authors an invaluable resource.

Robin B. Jarrett

Teaching cognitive therapy is basic to disseminating evidence-based practices in psychiatry which can improve mental health. This readable book is filled with insights and illustrations to facilitate dissemination. As master clinicians, Drs. Wright, Basco, and Thase have given the field creative tools to inspire both the student and teacher alike to continue developing and refining their practice of cognitive therapy.

Michelle B. Riba

Thank you to Drs. Wright, Basco, and Thase for giving clinicians an easy-to-read, practical, and useful guide for providing cognitive-behavior therapy. The learning exercises, video illustrations, and other visual aids make this book and DVD set an invaluable way to increase skills and competency in CBT. Clinicians at all levels -- from students and residents to senior practitioners -- will benefit from this important multimedia work.

Erica L. Wagner

I used the Wright, Basco, and Thase book in my basic intervention class, which was the first CBT class I took a while ago and I loved it. It has clear examples and explanations, a DVD with sample sessions, and really builds a strong foundation for cognitive behavioral therapy -- especially for people who are new to it. I have referred back to this book for many different things since the class -- specifically I use the forms that are available with the book such as examining evidence worksheets etc. and a great starting case conceptualization sheet. As a student, I really like it and from this perspective, I would recommend it.

Robert M. Goisman

This is a superior textbook of cognitive-behavior therapy. Unlike many cognitive therapy textbooks, this work concentrates on behavioral techniques as well as on more cognitive methods, so that it is useful for a wide range of disorders. The chapter on managing noncompliance with treatment (including with medications) is brilliant and will be useful across virtually all clinical situations. This book is highly recommended and represents a real step forward in psychotherapy training.

Aaron T. Beck

This volume is an excellent introduction to the application of cognitive therapy to clinical problems. The clear text and illustrations guide the reader through case formulation and all the necessary strategies and skills for becoming a competent cognitive therapist. The videos that accompany the book illustrate key features of CBT. Thus the therapist can learn cognitive therapy by reading, seeing, and doing.

David Goldberg

Anyone interested in teaching or learning Cognitive-Behaviortherapy will want to read and reread this essential text. It offers acurrent, step-by-step approach to understanding and practicing CBT;anchored in empiricism, brought alive with outstanding clinicalmaterial, and taught by some of the field's leading practitioners andeducators. The clarity and immediate relevance of the informationcombined with its sophistication and depth makes this a majorcontribution to the field.
