'A delightful volume, with unique style and content. This new edition amply lives up to the authors' aim of demonstrating a mode of CBT practice that incorporates many exciting developments whilst retaining the reassuring strength of the original parsimonious model.'

Ann Hackmann, Oxford Mindfulness Centre, University of Oxford

'One of the very best introductions to CBT, now enhanced with excellent coverage of new developments.'

Professor Neil Frude, Consultant Clinical Psychologist

'My first choice recommendation for trainee therapists. This outstanding and easy-to-read introduction just got better.'

Peter Simpson, Senior Lecturer in Mental Health, University of Glamorgan

In their established guide to contemporary CBT theory and practice, the authors show how therapeutic change takes place across a network of cognitive, emotional and behavioural functioning. They explain the central concepts of CBT and illustrate - with numerous case examples - how these can effectively be put into practice at each stage of the therapeutic process. They also explain how the essence of cutting edge 'third wave' can be integrated into everyday clinical practice.

With two new chapters on mindfulness and increasing access to CBT, a wider coverage of client issues, extra case studies and learning resources, and a discussion of recent developments, this book continues to be the ideal companion for those working - or training to work - in the psychological therapies and mental health.

Frank Wills is an independent Cognitive Psychotherapist in Bristol and tutor at the University of Wales Newport.

A useful extra resource for my students' needs as they study ways of improving their supervisory practices. Surely a great resource for those studying CBT in more detail.

A great resource for students developing their understanding of therapeutic perspectives.

I would recommend this introduction to CBT to any trainee, but especially those preparing to work in IAPT services. The chapters on the therapeutic realtionship and how to work with emotion in CBT are particularly helpful and well written, while avoiding becoming too technical or fuzzy! The use of case studies to illustrate how theoretical aspects of therapy translate into practice is particularly helpful.

An excellent practical resource that links theory and practice of cbt throughout by the use of case studies. The inclusion of a chapter on mindfulness is a welcome addition.

This is proving to be an essential book for early learners and practitioners of CBT. It is most useful as a lecturing aid and after ordering it is now in our library with students referring to it regularly.

A good book to aid the understanding of cognitive behaviour. Although it is specific to one area it is certainly worth considering as a purchase.
