'The most notable feature separating this book from other well-known and useful CBT books is the addition of filmed vignettes on a DVD coinciding with chapters form the guide. The chapters are packed with clinical cases, useful tables and charts, and 'Learning Exercises, ' which encourage the reader to use important information gleaned from the pages of the book. In addition, there are numerous appendixes with worksheets and checklists to heighten the learning experience without wasting time and effort.... This book will be quite beneficial for anyone practicing CBT, and is an excellent and worthy addition to the library of books on the topic.' --Doody's Review Service, April 2006

This book explains the core CBT principles and techniques and helps you to develop them following real-life examples. Every chapter provides detailed explanations on how to use CBT techniques and their rationale. There are some useful examples and the vignettes included in the DVD are very clear and helpful. I have been practicing CBT for some years and I have never found a book so schematic and practical. I think that every CBT trainee should read it at some point.

I really like this book. After buying a selection of books for my post graduate diploma, this is the book that I found easiest to read and the most informative. The language is simple and clear and the content is very practical. The DVD was a use addition.

If you need something easy to pick up and read when you have a spare minute or two - this is the text for you, it is very easy reading, with great clinical examples for creating links between theory and practice. The DVD is superb support material, and to be fair the videos are not boring and monotone like some video based support material i have experienced. It is a wonderful resource for those learning CBT principles and those in search of a text to give them some inspiration to why this approach is successful. On recently completing a post grad cert in CBT, i found this to be a great follow on resource and it is there by my side at all times.

I bought this book to help me do a presentation on CBT. I found it really helpful and the DVD is a bonus as it helped to make it clear and pointed me in the right direction of what I needed to do with my patient. I don't think I would have been able to do it without this book! I recommend this to any nursing students or anyone else in this field who needs to learn the basics of CBT and how to apply it.

This is a book that has alot of up to date information and is particulary helpful for trainee Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists. Easy to understand and the DVD is a bonus as the vignettes highlight many of the techniques described.
