Product Description

Review

"This book provides a skilful mix of theory and practice that should be essential reading for all wanting to learn more about MCT... I highly recommend it."  Hans M. Nordahl, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway

 "The book is unique in that it expands upon traditional CBT and adds a dimension that may prove to establish metacognitive therapy (MCT) as a distinctive therapeutic technique. The approach offered in this book will make a definite contribution to the field of psychotherapy--for therapists who do not practice traditional CBT as well as for those who do. This book will be of particular value to persons practicing CBT who wish to understand more of the weaknesses (and presumably, therefore, the strengths) of the traditional CBT model.Represents a new paradigm in the treatment of mental disorders. Its foundations are rooted solidly in traditional psychotherapeutic thought (particularly psychoanalysis) yet also within our latest understanding of the developmental and neurological aspects of the brain. It is clearly a book for the seasoned and knowledgeable psychologist."Richard H. Cox, President Emeritus/Professor of Forest Institute of Professional Psychology, in APA Journals, PsycCRITIQUES

I thought that MCT was just another name for CBT, but wanted to find out more about the approach. This book makes it very clear how MCT is distinct from a theoretical and clinical perspective. It provides many useful clinical examples and clinicians will find this a great introduction to working with clients from this new perspective.

Metacognitive therapy is one of the most important modern cognitive/behavioural therapies, without doubt, especially in the treatment of anxiety disorders. Adrian Wells has written an very comprehensive manual on metacognitive therapy (MCT) Metacognitive Therapy for Anxiety and Depression. However, this Distinctive Features series dictates a set format for the book that perhaps helps the authors here to provide similar information in a different manner, with new examples, etc. I found this very helpful as it clarifies the general approach and broadens the range of examples. For instance, there are a few more examples of MCT applied to social phobia in this book, an application not covered in much detail elsewhere. This book is perhaps also slightly more readable than Wells' main manual, and more concise. (It fits nicely in my jacket pocket for reading on the train!) I'd therefore recommend that anyone interested in MCT might want to read this book first and then the one mentioned above. MCT arguably offers a simpler and more consistent approach, in some ways, than traditional CBT. It's also accumulating evidence as potentially being slightly briefer and more effective than traditional CBT. MCT has shown particular promise as a treatment for OCD and GAD. Aaron T. Beck has now explicitly assimilated aspects of MCT into his revised cognitive therapy approach for GAD, and perhaps also in his revisions of the generic cognitive model of anxiety. In addition to the anxiety disorders, MCT has also shown promise as a more focused approach to the treatment of clinical depression than traditional cognitive therapy has offered, by targeting the key process of rumination.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Do we need an entire book to tell us not to ruminate about or troubles? - CBT is not all its cracked up to be, and to that end MCBT inserts a little more substance, but rather than attempt to highjack an uninteresting model, why not invent something better altogether?
