Book Description

9 Jun 2010 1606238698 978-1606238691 1

Helping therapists bring about enduring change when treating clients with any anxiety disorder, this invaluable book combines expert guidance, in-depth exploration, and innovative clinical strategies. The authors draw on extensive experience and research to provide a framework for constructing lucid formulations of complex cases. They identify obstacles that frequently arise during the early, middle, and later stages of treatment and present a wide range of practical solutions. The volume demonstrates clear-cut yet flexible ways to enhance client engagement, foster metacognitive awareness, facilitate emotional processing, address low self-esteem and fear of uncertainty, and much more. Reproducible handouts and forms are included.

The book will be useful for practitioners and students in clinical psychology, psychiatry, counselling, social work, and related mental health fields. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level seminars and clinical practica in cognitive-behavioral therapy and anxiety disorders.

Product Description


"Each chapter constructs a golden bridge between science and practice. The authors identify the important components of treatment at each phase, while explicating the theoretical and empirical framework within which each component of treatment is grounded. Their knowledge of the literature on the development and persistence of anxiety disorders is current and impeccable. Large bodies of findings are distilled into accurate summations that readily inform practice. The authors draw upon their collective expertise in treatment to describe a myriad of strategies the clinician can use to meet the goals of each treatment component. Well-written, concise, and centered on rich case examples, these descriptions effectively communicate how to implement CBT techniques in a truly compassionate and collaborative manner....This book empowers the clinician with the knowledge required to develop a solid case formulation and exercise good clinical judgment in the implementation of the rich variety of therapeutic techniques described. This book is an invaluable resource for the clinician, the CBT trainee, and the CBT instructor." - Journal of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy, UK 

"Therapists will appreciate the sophisticated nuances of therapy depicted here. Layers of clinical creativity are embedded within illustrative case examples. As an added bonus, the authors' transdiagnostic approach offers a clear path through the sometimes confusing process of treating clients with multiple anxiety disorders. I heartily recommend this elegant book, whether it is the first or the 50th that you read on anxiety treatment." - Christine A. Padesky, cofounder, Center for Cognitive Therapy, Huntington Beach, California, USA

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book by three experts on cognitive therapy. It provides a kind of update on recent adaptations to standard cognitive approaches to anxiety and some ideas with potential that needs to be explored. It's very well laid out and easy to read. I particularly liked the three chapters on avoidance of affect, Fennell's low self-esteem model, and intolerance of uncertainty.

The contents are as follows,

1. Treating Anxiety Disorders: The State of the Art
2. Assessment: Investigating Appraisals in Depth
3. Case Formulation: Making Sense of Complexity
4. Decentering from Thoughts: Achieving Objectivity
5. Bringing About Lasting Change at the Deepest Level
6. The Role of Behavioural Experiments
7. Avoidance of Affect
8. Low Self-Esteem
9. Dealing with Uncertainty
10. Creating a Therapy "Blueprint"
