This book is beautifully written and an extremely useful resource for therapists. It covers the main problems which are commonly encountered in clinical practice and offers both insight and guidance in how best to solve them. It belongs on the shelf of anybody learning or practicing CBT.

Absolutely brilliant approach to managing complexity and using cognitive therapy and individualised formulations for clients with more than one presentation, co-morbidty and difficult early experiences.
It describes lots of techniques and strategies to deal with clinical issues when clients' presentations do not fit disorder specific models or the client has difficulties engaging with the model.

This is an excellent book by three experts on cognitive therapy. It provides a kind of update on recent adaptations to standard cognitive approaches to anxiety and some ideas with potential that needs to be explored. It's very well laid out and easy to read. I particularly liked the three chapters on avoidance of affect, Fennell's low self-esteem model, and intolerance of uncertainty.

The contents are as follows,

1. Treating Anxiety Disorders: The State of the Art
2. Assessment: Investigating Appraisals in Depth
3. Case Formulation: Making Sense of Complexity
4. Decentering from Thoughts: Achieving Objectivity
5. Bringing About Lasting Change at the Deepest Level
6. The Role of Behavioural Experiments
7. Avoidance of Affect
8. Low Self-Esteem
9. Dealing with Uncertainty
10. Creating a Therapy "Blueprint"
