Book Description

This groundbreaking book addresses what to do when a patient is not making progress. Provided is practical, step-by-step guidance on conceptualizing and solving frequently encountered problems, whether in developing and maintaining the therapeutic alliance or in accomplishing specific therapeutic tasks. While the framework presented is applicable to a range of challenging clinical situations, particular attention is given to modifying the longstanding distorted beliefs and dysfunctional behavioral strategies of people with personality disorders. Helpful appendices include a reproducible assessment tool, the Personality Belief Questionnaire.

Product Description

Review

'This excellent book focuses on the art of cognitive therapy. When therapy does not seem to be going well, most clinicians can think of another therapist whom they think would fare better. This book teaches you how to become that therapist. Drawing on her vast experience with therapists and clients, Dr. Beck beautifully outlines how to identify and overcome many of the difficulties that can arise in cognitive therapy. Highly recommended reading for novice to highly experienced cognitive therapists.' - David M. Clark, DPhil, FBA, FMedSci, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College, London, UK

'Clinicians have been reporting for some time now that they are seeing increasingly difficult cases in their consulting rooms. Axis I and Axis II comorbidities have become the rule rather than the exception. By systematically addressing these challenges in this clearly written and eminently readable new volume, Judith Beck takes cognitive therapy to a new level. This book will be equally useful to students and to experienced therapists.' - Glen O. Gabbard, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Baylor College of Medicine

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging problems 21 Jun. 2009
By George Hedrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really liked this book written by one of the best known cognitive therapists in the country. . . .perhaps only her father is a better known cognitive therapist. It is very beneficial to read how Dr. J. Beck approaches challenging problems that arise during therapy. The case examples she gives can give a therapist insight into haow a master therapist works.

Although I liked virtually everything in the book, I particularly liked the chapter on dealing with problems that patients with axis II disorders present. The author also identifies some typical therapist reactions to the challenging problems that some clients exhibit.

I will kepp this book as a reference for a very long time

By Jun Jun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At first, I received a damaged book, but they replaced it to a brand new/good condition right away.
(Thank Amazon and the company for that.)

A lot of good examples and make a MHP to re-think what might be missing or to understand possible thinking process of a client/patient.
Especially when you are dealing a difficult or not progressing situation, this book might be a good resource to read up!
