Written in a clear, step-by-step style, this ideal teaching text makes cognitive therapy immediately accessible to students, beginning therapists, and seasoned practitioners who are not familiar with the cognitive approach. The author presents many clinical examples drawn from one patient's treatment to provide a realistic and coherent demonstration of cognitive therapy in action. These examples illustrate how to conceptualize patients according to the cognitive model; plan treatment; conduct an initial session; structure therapy within and across sessions; incorporate homework; and use cognitive and behavioral techniques. Instructors will appreciate the text's emphasis on formulating cases, making decisions within therapy sessions, diagnosing problems in therapy, and using advanced techniques to modify core beliefs and underlying assumptions. Transcripts in every chapter richly illustrate the narrative, and the book includes a variety of patient worksheets. This book will be of value to students and therapists learning how to use cognitive therapy. It will also serve as a text in advanced graduate and graduate clinical psychology and psychotherapy courses.

"I am a true fan (and 16-year adopter) of this text. Instructors, students, and clinicians have been eagerly awaiting an updated version of Beck’s classic guide to CBT and this second edition should exceed their lofty expectations. It retains the clarity, accessibility, thoughtful sequencing, and practical relevance of the original, while enhancing coverage of critical content pertaining to assessment, case conceptualization, core techniques, and the therapeutic relationship. Attentive to both the art and science of CBT, this volume is a 'must read' for graduate students and clinicians who are looking to build or sharpen their CBT skills." - Drew Erhardt, Pepperdine University, California, USA
"This book is well suited for teaching the basics of cognitive therapy to students new to the field, or for providing a detailed review for more seasoned professionals in your classroom. Clinicians trained in other modalities will learn ways to use cognitive techniques to help clients explore how their thoughts, emotional reactions and behaviors are related – and to facilitate change and growth. This is an essential text for cognitive therapy courses." - Mark McGrosky, New York University, USA
