An excellent text covering many aspects of CBT practice. The chapters on 'contextual issues and challenges' were particularly illuminating and informative.

The text would support the experienced practitioner as well as students.

Excellent text book. Practical guide for students although I feel this is more suitable/appropriate for Post registration. Use of incorporated case studies are helpful. Comprehensive covering a variety of mental health disorders and the application of CBT.

The book covers a wide range of mental health conditions and the application of CBT for these. The chapters on assessment and formulation are thorough and remain a valuable resource for trainee's in CBT to use. However, I think the book could generally benefit from a revised edition owing to developments in CBT practice in recent years.

This book has been recommended as a core read within one of the 3rd year Psychological Therapies module. This assists in students identifying the links between CBT and Cognitive behavioural appoaches as used within OT practice

This was an easy read. Fantastic use of case studies and particular interest in the section on CBT within Child and Adolescents. I liked the use of metaphors. I will add this to a recommended reading list.

An excellent introductory text outlining the principles underpinning the use of CBT with common mental health problems. A must for any health professional developing their use of these techniques.

gives some practical case studies which are helpful for linking theory to practice

This text will be a welcome addition to the recommended reading list for our second year Mental Health Nursing Students.
The case scenarios and detail within sessions is particularly helpful.

Excellent summary of CBT theory, practice and developments; the new edition has many improvements over the first edition although some good material has also been lost.
