4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview of the subject, 1 May 2013

This review is from: Oxford Guide to Imagery in Cognitive Therapy (Oxford Guides to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) (Paperback)
A short-ish (225 pages) book which nevertheless manages to cover a lot of ground. There's quite a bit of background to using imagery in therapy - why images are important, how they affect us emotionally etc; - which, potentially you could skip, but it is useful reading anyway. Chapters 6 and 7 are my favourites: very practical about how to explore images with clients, their beliefs about those images, what they think having those images says about them etc; I suspect that people would like more detailed case studies, which is why I've given the book 4 rather than 5 stars. But it's a good introduction all the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathing imagination into CBT, 18 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oxford Guide to Imagery in Cognitive Therapy (Oxford Guides to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) (Paperback)
A superb addition to any practicing therapists library as a resource and inspiration. The introductory chapter is a thorough and exemplary review of the history and development of applied imaginal techniques. The remainder of the book focuses on various forms of spontaneous and constructed multi sensory mental imagery and their role in a range of psychological disorders as well active therapeutic interventions to modify and influence the content and meaning. The book builds on empirical research into the phenomenology of imagery and also provides wonderful case illustrations demonstrating the application of formulating problems from an image focused CBT perspective. Highly recomended and has already fundamentally influenced my practice as a therapist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Oxford Guide... by Daniel Mirea Senior Lecturer and CBT consultant, 25 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Oxford Guide to Imagery in Cognitive Therapy (Oxford Guides to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) (Paperback)
Hackmann, Bennet-Levy and Holmes deliver again. Those who are familiar with their work should also know (and own) the 'Oxford Guide to Behavioural Experiments...'. This manual, just like the other Oxford Guides, clearly shows why CBT is 'the' favorite form of therapeutic treatment among clinicians. An important set of tools and interventions for all those interested in 'evidence-based psychological treatments'.
