Synopsis

A proven clinical resource, this book is packed with useful tools and interventions that will expand the repertoire of novice and experienced cognitive therapists. Detailed are the full variety of evidence-based techniques that can be brought to bear on specific client problems and therapeutic challenges. Therapists will rediscover--or learn for the first time--a wealth of effective ways to identify and challenge thoughts and core beliefs; modify patterns of worry, self-criticism, and approval-seeking; evaluate personal schemas; intervene in emotional processes; and activate new experiences for the client. Each technique is thoroughly described in Robert L. Leahy's trademark accessible style and illustrated with vivid case examples. Designed in a convenient large-size format, the book is bursting with over 80 reproducible client forms and handouts.
