Product Description

Review

"Concise and well written, this is the most accessible and clinically useful book on behavioral activation (BA) for depression available to date. It covers the theoretical underpinnings of BA, the evidence for its effectiveness, and key principles of effective delivery. It clarifies the relationship of BA to other evidence-based treatments and is illustrated throughout with practical clinical examples. The book will be of equal value to both trainees and experienced clinicians who want to learn about the effective practice of BA." - Stephen Pilling, Department of Clinical, Educational, and Health Psychology, University College London, UK

"A very clear and straightforward model for helping people who experience depression....Behavioural activation really works." - Linda Gask, British Journal of Psychiatry, Vol. 198, No. 2, February 2011

"Behavioral activation could help millions of people who struggle with depression and with the inertia that is so much a part of this debilitating disorder. The authors draw clear connections between behavioral activation and other modern treatments for depression. The book is written in plain language and includes vivid case examples. It will be an important resource for clinicians who want to refine their approach to their clients’ problems with depression, and will serve as an excellent text for graduate courses in behavior therapy or empirically supported treatments for depression." - Robert J. DeRubeis, Department of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania, USA

"This book is a superb overview of the theoretical basis, empirical support, and clinical application of behavioral activation for depression. It will be an excellent resource for the practicing clinician and for clinicians in training. The book is replete with helpful clinical examples, step-by-step guidelines, summary charts, and forms. It is invaluable for learning how to implement this highly effective treatment for depression." - Michelle G. Craske, Department of Psychology and Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

Format: Hardcover
The book describes key aspects to behavioural activation and is a must have for the practising clinician, trainee and trainer alike. Easy to read and difficult to put down, the book is excellent and is recommended for most IAPT training courses in England.

Having read about Behavioural activation I can only assume that Occupational therapists will now become busier than ever. Excellent book, excellent idea but honestly OT's have been doing this since world war I, by engaging veterans in basket weaving to aid their rehabilitation and to help with their recovery from depression.
