An invaluable adjunct to 'Mind Over Mood' for the clinician
on 30 June 2001
A well thought out and easy to digest book for use by the clinician. It gives brief overviews of the historical aspects of cognitive therapy and establishes the importance of developing collaborative empiricism and guided discovery between both parties whilst working towards mutual goals.
It clearly sets out how to incorporate mind over mood within various settings such as inpatient facilities, and in doing so, it can provide professionals with support through the early days of an admission. (Providing there is closely monitored supervision, and agreement within the Multi-Disciplinary-Team that this is appropriate).
The book also suggests how to work with groups, individuals and couples, and discusses the process step by step. It also has suggestions for troubleshooting should the therapist encounter difficulties.
Within the practice setting the clinicain could find that this book when used in conjunction with patients guide to mind over mood can help them to bring about changes in cognitive processing and behaviour change.
