Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in Mental Health Care

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in Mental Health Care

Second Edition

March 2010 | 328 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Providing an accessible and thorough overview of the practice of CBT within mental health care, this new edition has been updated to include:

  • Revised chapters on the therapeutic relationship and case formulation
  • New material on personality disorders and bipolar disorder
  • New material on working with diversity
  • Content on the multidisciplinary context of CBT, the service user perspective, CBT from a holistic perspective
  • Developments within the cognitive behavioral psychotherapies
  • Continuous professional development for the CBT practitioner

Already a tried-and-tested guide for trainee psychologists and psychotherapists, as well as clinicians in mental health services and private practices, this text is also of value to practitioners who need refresher courses in CBT.

This is an excellent text for students with a pre-existing konwledge of cbt. It is very clearly presented and is enhanced greatly by the use of case studies. I have attended workshops by Alec Grant and find him very interesting, inspiring and expert in this area.

An excellent contemporary oververview of the general CBT approach with a refreshing reemphasis on the therapeautic relationship.
The practical applications to prevalent mental health problems are most useful but what elevates this book above others is the focus on contextual issues making it a highly recommended read for students and seasoned practitioners alike.

This is an excellent solid foundation into key aspects of CBT for pre-registration mental health nursing students.It covers a good range of contemporary areas of clinical practice. Each chapter has clear learning objectives and recommended further reading, thus offering helpful structure for student studies.

The text covers key aspects of assessment and formulation within cognitive behavioural therapy, whilst also addresses the application of CBT principles and skills to specific client groups. The text has a clear structural coherance; activities at the end of each chapter facilitating further learning.

An essential text to students and practitioners working within the field of mental health, particularly for those involved in the delivery of CBT interventions.

An informative text which contextualises the use of CBT within current contemporary mental health practice and which takes account of the user persepctive.

This book is of equal interest to trainees and qualified practitioners from the fields of both counselling and psychotherapy and the mental health professions.
