From an experienced clinician and a prominent psychotherapy researcher, this book synthesizes the evidence base for cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and translates it into practical clinical guidelines.
Therapists and students learn how to implement core CBT techniques, why and how they work, and what to do when faced with gaps in scientific knowledge.
Vivid case examples illustrate what evidence-based strategies look like in action with real-world clients who may have multiple presenting problems.
The authors also separate CBT myths from facts and discuss ways to manage common treatment challenges.
