The therapeutic relationship in CBT is often reduced to a cursory description of establishing warmth, genuineness and empathy in order to foster a collaborative relationship. This does not reflect the different approaches needed to establish a therapeutic partnership for the wide range of disorders and settings in which CBT is applied. This book takes a client group and disorder approach with chapters split into four sections:
- General issues in the therapeutic relationship in CBT
- Therapeutic relationship issues in specific disorders
- Working with specific client groups
- Interpersonal considerations in particular delivery situations
Each chapter outlines key challenges therapists face in a specific context, how to predict and prevent ruptures in the therapeutic alliance and how to work with these ruptures when they occur. With clinical vignettes, dialogue examples and ‘tips for therapists' this book is key reading for CBT therapists at all levels.
