"In Mind Over Mood, Greenberger and Padesky produced an absolutely first-rate guide for patients who wanted to learn about cognitive therapy and how to use it to deal with their problems. In Clinician's Guide to Mind Over Mood, the authors have provided an invaluable guide for the clinician to accompany their patient workbook. The guide is clear, concise, and filled with clinical wisdom. It should prove to be a valuable resource for anyone who wants to work with other people and reflects the kind of creativity that keeps cognitive therapy vital and fresh as it matures as a discipline." - Steve Hollon, Vanderbilt University, USA
