To date, all of the books on cognitive restructuring have addressed only one component: memory skills such as attention/concentration and rehearsal strategies. This book covers these in detail but also provides the techniques for problem solving, decision making, concept learning, organization and planning, and other reasoning skills. External aids, prosthetic devices, and other techniques and activities for improving memory and reasoning skills are also covered.
