This is a very useful all-rounder for students even new to CBT or with some experience. An excellent addition to anyone's reading list, because it is both comprehensive and clear.

This book is extremely useful across a number of modules in which I teach CBT elements and cross modality approaches which draw from cognitive and behavioural theories.
It is an easy to read book and the chapters enabled students to grasp theoretical concepts and link them with practice. Chapter 9 for example was very well received by learners in different modules. For example students on a module on Transcultural Counselling and psychotherapy highlighted their value of the book when we focused on the applicability of CBT when working with cultural difference. Furthermore the chapter on Multidisciplinary Working enabled me to use the book and recommend it to Nurses, Health promotion professionals and psychologists who attended for different modules and sessions. The case studies and examples through ought the book, enabled students to reflect on the practice and ethical principles of CBT. I recommended this book as an essential read..

This is a very practical guide for those of us who wish to practice CBT reflectively. I would recommend this book to any serious CBT practitioners. For other mental health practitioners this is a useful supplementary guide for other generic skills highlighted within the text e.g. building therapuetic alliances
