This review is from: Science and Practice of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy: Science and Practice) (Paperback)
I own loads of books and it was only because I was in a meeting with a prestigious Harley St Addiction practice Charter Day Care (Brilliant people by the way) that I was reminded of Fairburn in regards to Eating Disorders and CBT. So I picked up this book again and had a quick flick through.

This book is a very good introduction into CBT and covers the history behind the "science" of CBT as well as typical uses and with specific disorders which is always a good thing.

Because it is over 10 years old it is also quite nice to read the conclusion on how CBT will grow and become more mainstream due to the more rigorous application of research than other therapy models and how spot on this prediction was.

Here is a book dedicated to the memory of Michael Gelder who has inspired and helped apply a model that helps people get better and it is a very fitting book. It has a great chapter by Chris Fairburn on eating disorders and this is what reminded me to pick this up and give it a quick review. Chris Fairburn has helped many people get better and has continued his work with eating disorders - you can get loads of information from his oxford university website and download the eating disorder questionnaires and much more for free. He and his team also offer specialised training if this is what you're interested in.

Anyway, back to the book, it consists of lots of different chapters written by heavyweights in the CBT field and even the foreword is by Aaron Beck. Lots of useful tables of info such as 6 core techniques within the chapter on depression and it is useful to have a book like this as a resource.

Although there are lots of newer books than this - my copy was bought in 2007 and 12th reprint so lots of people must like it - including me. So if you're interested in CBT then this is a good starting point.
