Product Description

Review

'The most notable feature separating this book from other well-known and useful CBT books is the addition of filmed vignettes on a DVD coinciding with chapters form the guide. The chapters are packed with clinical cases, useful tables and charts, and 'Learning Exercises, ' which encourage the reader to use important information gleaned from the pages of the book. In addition, there are numerous appendixes with worksheets and checklists to heighten the learning experience without wasting time and effort.... This book will be quite beneficial for anyone practicing CBT, and is an excellent and worthy addition to the library of books on the topic.' --Doody's Review Service, April 2006

Format: Paperback
This is a book that has alot of up to date information and is particulary helpful for trainee Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists. Easy to understand and the DVD is a bonus as the vignettes highlight many of the techniques described.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book to help me do a presentation on CBT. I found it really helpful and the DVD is a bonus as it helped to make it clear and pointed me in the right direction of what I needed to do with my patient. I don't think I would have been able to do it without this book! I recommend this to any nursing students or anyone else in this field who needs to learn the basics of CBT and how to apply it.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Krishna Naidu on 11 Jan. 2010
Format: Paperback
If you need something easy to pick up and read when you have a spare minute or two - this is the text for you, it is very easy reading, with great clinical examples for creating links between theory and practice. The DVD is superb support material, and to be fair the videos are not boring and monotone like some video based support material i have experienced. It is a wonderful resource for those learning CBT principles and those in search of a text to give them some inspiration to why this approach is successful. On recently completing a post grad cert in CBT, i found this to be a great follow on resource and it is there by my side at all times.

A Primer for a CBT trainee and a Refresher Course for a CBT practitioner 1 May 2006
By Pavel Somov, Ph.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While researching literature for an article in the Library of the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic (Pittsburgh, PA), I have noticed the book in question on the library's display shelf for new releases. I opened the book at random and stumbled upon a handful of effectively presented tables and charts (a list of healthy and dysfunctional schemas, tips for using behavioral activation, etc.). I checked the book out.

The book serves equally well as a primer for a CBT trainee or as a refresher course for a CBT practitioner. In reading the book, I have reminisced about my first doctoral practicum in CBT tx of anxiety and depression (a few years back, in the 20th century!) and wished my learning of cognitive-behavior therapy had been accompanied by readings from "Learning Cognitive-Behavior Therapy" by Wright, Busco and Thase.

Having read about a dozen books on CBT, I place this book in the top three in terms of immediate clinical utility. The book wastes no time to organize various pieces of CBT paradigm. Case in point is page 7: the book begins with placing automatic thoughts and schemas in the context of levels of cognitive processing. The book continues with similarly effective organization, laconic case vignettes, and exercises. The book comes with a DVD which I have not had a chance to review but, I am confident (based on my prior exposure to one of the author's computer-assisted multimedia program) is of good quality as well.

To think, "It's just another book on CBT" would be a cognitive error.

An Excellent Resource for Learning Cognitive Therapy 3 Jun. 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It has often been said that psychotherapy is both art and science. Research over the last 40 years has demonstrated the scientific basis for Cognitive Therapy. However, it is one thing to read about an approach to therapy and another to learn how to do it. Learning Cognitive-Behavior Therapy: An Illustrated Guide provides the reader and clinician with the best of both worlds. Not only will the reader find in the book the basic concepts and techniques of CT, the accompanying DVD will demonstrate how to administer these interventions. This book is a must for anyone who is serious about using Cognitive Therapy in their clinical setting. It is also a useful resource for academics that are looking for a resource to illustrate this approach to therapy.

text w/dvd 8 Jun. 2007
By Vicki J. Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is easy to read and gives actual examples that can be used in a therpeutic setting. The DVD has real life situations and examples that are easily tranferrable to counseling sessions. The DVD looks like an office and people in a previous decade, but skills are still up to date.

Truly good learning 8 April 2008
By FELO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've found this book particularly interesting for those of you that should to teach CBT techniques to people who are in their first steps of education (residents, students, nurses, etc.)It is clear, well writen and good learning. Basic principles of the rationale of CBT and treatment techniques are well explained and DVD provides you with helpful examples. Above all, I would like to remark that the book gives you really interesting advice about how to do case-formulation. It is such a good learning. Finally, the book provides you with some checklists and scales that will help you to teach, supervise or practise CBT in a reliably way.

Product review 10 Nov. 2008
By Mel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book as well as two others (Handbook of Cognitive Behavior Therapies, Cognitive Therapy: Basics and Beyond)for a comparative paper for grad school. Out of all three, this one had the most information, and I cited it multiple times throughout my paper.
Highly recommended for students who need to know the basics of how CBT works, as far as history, important figures, actual therapeutic techniques, etc.
