I have recommended 'Oxford guides...' to my students religiously. Well this is no exception, yet again a brilliant manual put together by an experienced group for all those interested in evidence-based psychological treatments ! Dare I say... this could be an excellent manual for practitioners from other approaches, such as existential or humanistic therapies. On the same note, I would also strongly recommend the 'Oxford Guide to Imagery Work in Cognitive Therapy'.
This is an excellent combination of academic and clinical material on the subject of imagery in therapy. CBT is the overarching framework but many of the ideas can be applied to any form of therapy and the later chapters show how diverse CBT is these days, merging into other therapies. There is an excellent mix of clinical examples, which abound, and academic research, not excessive but important in the authors' eyes. This makes for intelligent and informed chapters that I found very useful and thought-provoking. A delightful drawing prefaces each chapter and each chapter is followed a brief vignette by an invited clinician (photo attached!). The whole book has been carefully thought through that made me wonder if the authors carried out an image construction/mental simulation exercise beforehand! If they did, it paid dividends.
