An Introduction to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is the definitive beginner's guide to the basic theory, skills and applications of cognitive-behavioural therapy. In this eagerly-awaited Second Edition, the authors set out the core concepts and generic skills of CBT, including case formulation; the therapeutic relationship; and cognitive, behavioural and physiological therapeutic strategies. Practical illustrations of how these techniques can be applied to the most common mental health problems ensure that theory translates into real-life practice. New to this edition, the authors examine: - cultural diversity in greater depth - the current topicality of CBT, especially within the NHS - the latest Roth and Pilling CBT competencies - the impact of third wave and other developments in CBT in more detail.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder can be a very disabling and distressing problem. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has been shown to be very effective in helping people to overcome OCD. However, OCD is a highly heterogeneous disorder, often complicated by contextual factors, and therapists are often left wondering how to apply their knowledge of treatment to the particular problems as they face them in clinical practice. This book provides the reader with an understanding of the background to and principles of using CBT for OCD in a clear practical 'how to' style. It also elucidates the particular challenges and solutions in applying CBT for OCD using illustrative case material and guidance on formulation-driven intervention. The book also addresses commonly occurring complexities in the treatment of OCD, for example working with comorbidity, perfectionism, shame and family involvement in symptoms. Throughout the book, the authors provide tips on receiving and giving supervision to trouble-shoot commonly encountered problems, resulting in a guide that can help clinicians at all levels of experience.

Although Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has a well elaborated theoretical background and documented standard therapeutic process, new specific theoretical formulations and genuine techniques seem to continually appear. These new treatment developments in CBT constitute the heart of this book. Leading researchers and clinicians, who are also well established experts in the application of CBT present the extent of their experience, as well as appropriate and state-of-the-art treatment techniques for a variety of specific disorders: * Management of Major Depression, suicidal behaviour and Bipolar Disorder. * Treatment of Anxiety Disorders such as Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. * Application of CBT to Eating Disorder and Personality Disorders, especially Borderline Personality Disorder. * Implementation of CBT with specific populations such as couples and families, children and adolescents. The book focuses on clinical practice and treatment techniques, but avoids a step-by-step approach. Instead it encourages flexibility and integrativity in order to help the practicing clinician become more competent and efficient in applying CBT. Well-known contributors reveal a variety of treatment styles, and case examples and treatment transcripts are used to show how theoretical innovations integrate with the practice of CBT.
