Product Description

Review

"This significant work will no doubt become the shining light by which the idiographic approach to CBT will be guided in the future. One of the few books that is worth even more than the purchase price!" - Nicholas Tarrier, PhD, FBPsS, University of Manchester, United Kingdom

"Decades of research and clinical experience meet in this seminal book. Persons provides a guide for both the novice and experienced practitioner to deal with even the most complex of cases. This significant work will no doubt become the shining light by which the idiographic approach to CBT will be guided in the future. One of the few books that is worth even more than the purchase price!" - Nicholas Tarrier, Department of Clinical Psychology, University of Manchester, UK

"Persons's insights into case formulation are second to none. This book brilliantly demonstrates that you don't have to sacrifice good science to be an excellent clinician, and vice versa....Persons's rare combination of clinical practicality and scientific dedication makes her a role model for every young scientist-clinician." - Marsha M. Linehan, Professor and Director, Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington, USA

"This book's sophisticated blending of case-level formulation with empirical principles of behavior change is a threshold event in CBT's ongoing engagement with clinical complexity, comorbidity, and nonadherence." -Zindel V. Segal, PhD, Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry, University of Toronto, Canada

"There is no greater challenge facing mental health professionals than moving from scientific theory and research to clinical practice. Persons has addressed this critical issue for many years, and has come up with solutions that demand the attention of serious health professionals. She convincingly shows how to analyze complex cases in ways that are both scientifically sound and practically feasible and effective. Persons is the consummate scientist-practitioner. This book is a 'must read.'" - Gerald C. Davison, William and Sylvia Kugel Dean's Chair, and Professor of Gerontology and Psychology, University of Southern California, USA

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent overview of case conceptualisation in CBT. It's a classic text, dedicated to the subject, and committed to individualised treatment within an evidence-based framework. Persons focuses throghout how evidence can be utilised and treatment protocols adapted to suit the needs of the individual client, while remaining broadly evidence-based in orientation.

This author draws on research to explain implications for practice extremely well. I'm not enamoured with CBT approaches that follow a manualised structure and Jacqueline Persons certainly doesn't do this. Her writing is very clear and well structured, but it is also deeply reflective and insightful. I think this book would be helpful for experienced and inexperienced therapists alike because it is so well written. Even if you're familiar with a CBT approach, she draws on varied approaches within the field to compare and contrast, so you can feel you understand it all better than you did before.
