The leading text for students and practicing therapists who want to learn the fundamentals of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), this book is eminently practical and authoritative. In a highly accessible, step-by-step style, master clinician Judith S. Beck demonstrates how to engage patients, develop a sound case conceptualization, plan treatment, and structure sessions effectively. Core cognitive, behavioral, and experiential techniques are explicated and strategies are presented for troubleshooting difficulties and preventing relapse. An extended case example and many vignettes and transcripts illustrate CBT in action. Seven reproducible clinical tools can also be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size (www.guilford.com/p/beck4). New to this edition: reflects over 15 years of research advances and the author's ongoing experience as a clinician, teacher, and supervisor chapters on the evaluation session and behavioral activation increased emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, building on patients' strengths, and homework now even more practical: features reproducibles and a sample case write-up. This book will be invaluable to clinicians and graduate students in all of the mental health disciplines, including clinical psychology, social work, psychiatry, and counseling. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level CBT and psychotherapy courses.

Reviews

"In addition to the fundamental aspects of CBT that were presented in the original volume, the second edition presents innovations in theory and clinical practice. Like its predecessor, this book is destined to be an international success. It is written in clear and compelling prose, with many practical suggestions and clinical vignettes. This is truly an essential book for anyone who wants to become an expert in CBT." - Keith S. Dobson, Department of Psychology, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada
