Product Description


'This book will prove highly valuable for those training in CBT and those practicing it. It is timely given the growing interest in developing CBT to better meet the needs of the huge number of people who could benefit from it. Dr Scott's particular skill is in demystifying the process of CBT and making it relevant to those people we meet in routine clinical situations. This is a book written by a highly experienced clinician and researcher clearly at the top of his game' - Dr Jim White, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board. 'Mike Scott brings the therapeutic arena alive using clinical examples, therapeutic transcripts and some of his own words of wisdom. A lively and accessible text, designed for CBT therapists, supervisors and trainers.' - Dr Vivien Twaddle, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Newcastle Cognitive and Behavioural Therapies Centre. 'This book manages to balance and structure theory, research and practical detail in a guide which helps the reader to understand how to conduct cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). Not only does it provide a clear clinical guide to treatment, but it also helps the reader to identify further resources and tools which will allow the clinician to extend the scope of their work without losing the essential empirical grounding which underpins CBT'. - Paul Salkovskis, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Clinical Director of the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma, Maudsley Hospital. '...clear, concise and easy to use. It will help you work in a systematic way...' Clinical Psychology Forum.

Format: Paperback
This book was on my reading list when I was at University studying Criminal Justice Studies. This is very good background reading although if you are new to the subject you may have to read relevant chapters more than once to fully grasp each authors concept and critique of the current and changing state of the service. The good thing about this book is that you can go to different chapters as per your interest. Also you will be able to reflect on the changes and reference key poins as things evolve and change again, perhaps going full circle. A good keeper. This book dosn't give examples for good practice and working with offenders.. other books do that , this dosnt set out to. I still have this book and wouldn't give it away.
