Book Description

20 April 2007 1857756037 978-1857756036 1st New edition
This book includes a foreword by Anne Garland, Consultant Nurse in Psychotherapy, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust. This practical, introductory guide explains the cognitive behavioural approach and its many uses across a wide range of health and social care environments. With a focus on salient topics often found in the Membership of the Royal College of Psychiatrists Examination (MRCPsych), this guide is ideal for study and revision. Practical examples bring the subject to life, and key points are summarised at the conclusion of each chapter. The comprehensive approach is invaluable to postgraduate trainees in psychiatry and psychology, Senior House Officers and candidates for the MRCPsych examination. Psychiatric nurses and general practitioners with an interest in cognitive behavioural therapy will also find the guide enlightening. It will also be of great interest to undergraduate students of medicine and nursing, and psychologists, counsellors and therapists. "It is becoming imperative that psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses and general practitioners be knowledgeable about cognitive behavioural therapy. They need to know when to refer for CBT, who to refer and to be able to use cognitive behavioural principles within their daily work. It was with this aim in mind that this book was written - not to produce cognitive behavioural psychotherapists per se, but to assist psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses and other mental health staff to know enough about the theory and practice of CBT to begin to incorporate aspects into their practice." - Graeme Whitfield and Alan Davidson, in the Introduction.

Having read quite a few books on cognitive behavioural therapy, this book is by far the best i've read so far. I would recommend this book to anyone, be it people who suffer with disorders, or medical professionals. Unlike a lot of books on this subject, it is easy to read. Other books on the subject can be either full of professional gobbledegook which nobody can understand, or are so condescending that they make the reader feel like an idiot. This book isn't in any of those two categories. It is informing and intelligently written by the two authors, who know a great deal about the subject matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars CBT properly explained 6 Sep 2009
THE book I would make mandatory for all students of CBT,House Officers and IAPT trainees. It is clear concise and explains all the basic CBT practice steps. Going on to applying CBT to specific disorders.

It defines what CBT is in relation to other therapies, and then supports this with a psyciatric underpinning, and evidence base, found in the Royal College of Psyciatrists examination.
It has clear headings and accessible explanations,which are testimony to just how well Whitfield and Davidson understand this subject matter, and importantly the context into which they are placing the knowlege that of primary and secondary health care.
If you have only one CBT book on your shelf this is the one to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars CBT 10 Jan 2011
By hannah
I am a student mental health nurse in my 3rd year and borrowed this book from the library but so much so that it was easy to read and explained CBT for all mental illnesses I decided to buy it, this is by far the best CBT book I have bought and would recommend it for any mental health professional

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much detailed 16 April 2011
By Pandora
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is too detailed with lots of data of the approach. I gave 3 stars, but in fact I didn't like it much, because it is a bit tiring to read from the beginning to the end.
The book can be used as a reference book, as it contains CBT to specific disorders, so if we need to search for CBT for depression than the book can be used as reference.
There are indeed better books on this approach, it is worth searching for other ones before choose this one.
