" A Breakthrough in CBT ",
This review is from: Metacognitive Therapy for Anxiety and Depression (Hardcover)
This amazing book represents a major leap forwards for cognitive behaviour therapies and is sold as a new therapy M.C.T ( metacognitive therapy) which turns a lot of very traditional cbt techniques on their head,in particular the M.C.T. approach to "worry and rumination" which is very applicable across several anxiety disorders.
It introduces new concepts like " detached mindfulness techniques" which are also very different to "traditional mindfulness techniques" , the work is heavily researched and very complete with techniques to use, inventories, and treatment plans.
Personally I feel it is a major breakthrough that will keep on developing some very useful ways of treatment presently and in the future.
Going on a Adrian Wells course would make a great difference to your understanding of this book , which I have done, and after the course I used some the techniques in clinical practice to excellent effect.
