Cognitive Therapy in Action
Ivy-Marie Blackburn and Vivien Twaddle
A practitioner’s casebook.
“It is so clearly written that I am certain a novice therapist would not feel overwhelmed by the content… If you are learning or practising cognitive therapy and only purchase one book this year, this is the one to buy.”
‘British Journal of Medical Psychology’
Cognitive therapy is the established method of helping people to overcome states of depression, anxiety or other emotional conditions. Not only do the authors explain the theory behind the treatment but this was the first collection of case studies to be published outside of the United States.
With an introduction to the development and application of cognitive therapy, the book goes on to outline how it can work for a therapist or counsellor. Covering cases from depression and panic disorder to bulimia and obsessive-compulsive disorder, giving details of the process of the therapy in each case.
This is an invaluable practical guide to how cognitive therapy works for clinical psychologists, students, social workers, nurses and psychiatrists.
