More About the Author

David Westbrook is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, and was Director of Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre (OCTC) until June 2012, when he stepped down to spend more time on writing. Before training as a clinical psychologist he was a psychiatric nurse, eventually becoming the nurse in charge of a specialist behaviour therapy unit in London. This led on to an interest in cognitive therapy, which has included training from many of the world's leading CBT therapists. He has been practicing CBT for over 25 years and currently works part-time in OCTC, doing training, supervision and research; and part-time as an NHS clinician, providing a service for patients with severe and complex problems. He is BABCP-accredited as a therapist, supervisor and trainer.

Product Description

Review

'If you can only buy one CBT book, this is the gem you are looking for. An Introduction to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy offers a comprehensive and practical summary of CBT principles, methods and treatment protocols. Experienced clinicians will appreciate the clinically sophisticated case examples which are accompanied by succinct summaries of the conceptual and scientific principles encapsulated in them. At the same time, this text is written so clearly that novice therapists will find it easy to understand and immensely helpful in learning CBT.'
Christine A. Padesky, Ph.D
Co-author of Collaborative Case Conceptualization and Mind Over Mood


'Cognitive-behavioral therapy has evolved into a large family of theories, models and therapeutic strategies. This text is a very well organised, comprehensive and highly accessible introduction to CBT. The authors' proficient understanding of the breadth and complexity of CBT shines through making this an excellent overview of the current state of knowledge and practice.

There is much to like about this book, but two features came through as particular strengths. First, the text seeks to genuinely enable therapists' understanding, providing how to guides, case examples and route maps to learning. Second, the sections on therapist training and supervision provide a grounded and excellent resource on how to get the most out of training and supervision. This book will help unlock CBT therapists' full potential to help their clients.'
Professor Willem Kuyken
Mood Disorders Centre


'It is great to see an already outstanding book brought right up to date with the incorporation of new information on difference, competence and access. Students, teachers and experienced practitioners alike will do well to study this new edition in depth, particularly the enhanced case study material and student exercises. As ever, for these authors, excellence begets excellence.'
David Richards, Professor of Mental Health Services Research
University of Exeter

This is a must for anyone in the field of CBT. Really easy to read, lots of practical guidance and also has a website to link to, with video demonstrations. I refer to this book frequently and would certainly rate it as a key text. Good value for money.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an absolute must for anybody studying Cognitive Behavioural Counselling for the first time. Its clarity and lucidity, together with the breadth of its scope and its commitment to introducing theory and practical skills in tandem, marks it out from other introductory works. A product of the Oxford CBT centre, the book draws upon the latest research and from direct experience of the clinical frontline. The 'applications' section could be expanded, and it would be nice to see a more extensive section on CBT for addiction and alcoholism, but this remains simply the best introduction to the discipline, standing (imho) head and shoulders above the competition. Importantly, the early chapters will leave the practitioner with new perspectives on their counselling skills that are ripe for immediate clinical deployment.

Format: Paperback
I am a new learner to CBT and this book came recommended . . . . I have to say that it is just the ticket for getting you into the groove of CBT; its ethos and purpose. I have found the narrative easy to follow and digest and the 'case illustrations' provide additional clarity to accompany the author's informative and constructive text.

Easy to read, comprehensive text which would be useful for experienced CBT Therapists and for those in training. I liked the way this book is divided into useful chapters e.g. Assessment and Formulation, Socratic Method, Cognitive Techniques etc.
