Why has this book not been written before? Professional roles are under pressure as never before with multiple demands, rising workloads and budgetary challenges. It’s sometimes hard to know how best to help - this wonderful gem of a book will help practitioners continually apply an ethical and values based framework to their practice that emphasises their role in working with the individual – yet recognises the complexity of service delivery in varied health and social care settings.

There is a need for a text of this kind that integrates ethical practice into the practice of CBT.
