Full Description:   

From leading experts in the field-a practicing clinical psychologist and a renowned psychotherapy researcher-this book synthesizes the evidence base for cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and translates it into practical clinical guidelines. The focus is how clinicians can use current research findings to provide the best care in real-world practice settings. Within a case formulation framework, core cognitive and behavioral theories and techniques are described and illustrated with vivid case examples. The authors also discuss managing everyday treatment challenges; separating CBT myths from facts; and how to develop a successful CBT practice and optimize the quality of services.

"A unique contribution to the clinical literature. This book provides valuable guidance on how to carry out cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) effectively. It would serve as an excellent text for courses on CBT for practicing clinicians. Cutting across disorders, Dobson and Dobson show how CBT can be used with virtually any client. They include valuable instruction on often-overlooked techniques, such as behavioral activation and social skills training. They also address challenges and controversies in clinical training and the dissemination of evidence-based practices. This is a book for everyone interested in the science and practice of CBT."
-Deborah Roth Ledley, PhD, Children's Center for OCD and Anxiety, Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania
"Dobson and Dobson have provided a most comprehensive resource on the science and practice of cognitive-behavioral therapy. I believe this book will prove to be an invaluable resource for established clinicians who wish not only to enhance their working knowledge and understanding of CBT, but also to gain helpful techniques in general practice development."
-Michael G. Wetter, PsyD, Chief, Adult Psychiatry Services, Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, Hayward, California
