5.0 out of 5 stars Great CBT introduction, 26 May 2011
This review is from: Cognitive Behavioural Counselling in Action (Counselling in Action series) (Paperback)
I had never looked at CBT or studied the methods and approach prior to October of last year and this book was the core text book of the Diploma that I studied on. It is set out in an easy to read and accessible way that makes it perfect for the trainee Counsellor/Therapist. As with another reviewer I come from a predominantly psychological and PCT background and was a bit daunted by the CBT approach feeling that it would be too advanced for me to study.

This book dispproved that hypothesis and I now have completed two modules on CBT that are going towards my degree in Therapy. I really enjoyed the CBT approach and would highly recommend this book for the learner and anyone interested in this method.

Like all the Counselling In Action books they are clearly written and concise and straight to the point. I have read this book along with Person Centred Counselling in Action and Psychodynamic Counselling in Action (this was my first look at the Psychodynamic Approach, and I knew these books would be a clear introduction to Psychodynamic Counselling).

They have really assisted me in my Theoretical Understanding of therapy and the methods involved and I would highly recommend this book along with any of the other Counnselling In Action books to anyones wider reading into different Counselling Approaches, at any level. To further build on these books the next step would most likely be the Advancing Theory In Therapy books where these books build a solid grounding for people to advance into more higher level books.

My next book will be Key Issues in Counselling In Action by Windy Dryden which will further complement my wider reading and my personnel development, and knowledge in therapy. A very good book which will assist the trainee and qualified counsellor read after read.
