Developments in Cognitive Psychotherapy

Edited by:

August 1988 | 260 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Has the field of cognitive psychotherapy changed over the past three decades? And, if change has occurred, how has it affected accepted modes of treatment in cognitive psychotherapy? In this tightly edited collection of original articles, the editors provide an excellent sampling of the most recent--and important--developments in this exciting field. Topics addressed range from the theoretical to the practical and include: nonconscious processes in cognitive psychotherapy, emotion disorders, an integrated cognitive-behavioral approach to withdrawal from tranquilizers, and cognitive therapy with depressed inpatients to name but a few. In addition, the final chapter offers valuable insights on how cognitive psychotherapy can be used to encourage effective parenting. Developments In Cognitive Psychotherapy is an invaluable addition to the professional psychotherapist's library. "The material in all of the chapters was interesting and potentially valuable to the clinician familiar with cognitive psychotherapy . . . well worth reading." --Contemporary Psychology "Carmin and Dowd present a very constructive overview of the development process which has led us to the present cognitive psychotherapeutic 'models'." --Clinical Psychology Forum "It will offer the mental health care professional food for thought and stimulate further reading." --Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy "The theoretical chapters in this book (are) thought-provoking, while the clinical section gave useful summaries and practical advice. For all those familiar with the basics of cognitive therapy, this will be a useful resource." --British Journal of Psychiatry "There is something for everyone here. . . it is well worth having a look at." --The British Psychological Society Counselling Psychology Section Review "Final year undergraduate students and practitioners in this field would find this a book which would substantially enhance both their knowledge base and therapeutic techniques. The book certainly lives up to the aims stated by the editors, namely that it presents. . . a sample of recent developments in cognitive psychotherapy which represents the breath of work being carried out in this field." --Counselling Psychology "This much-needed collection of contemporary views and practice in cognitive psychotherapy is essential reading for committed cognitive therapists and researchers. In addition, it will be valuable to trainers and trainees in the clinical professions." --British Journal of Clinical Psychology "The well-edited, intelligently organized book is a useful addition to the literature on cognitive approaches." --British Journal of Medical Psychology

`These chapters offer a review of their field, and give good descriptions of clinical practice using a blend of cognitive, behavioural, and other strategies. I found many of the theoretical chapters in this book thought-provoking, while the clinical section gave useful summaries and practical advice. For all those familiar with the basics of cognitive therapy, this will be a useful resource' - The British Journal of Psychiatry

`This book represents a drawing together of a substantial amount of research in the field of cognitive psychotherapy from past to present. What is particularly successful is the emphasis on recent British research in the field rather than a concentration on just American developments as is often the case... final year undergraduate students and practitioners in the field would find this a book which would substantially enhance both their knowledge base and therapeutic techniques' - Counselling Psychology Quarterly

`This well-edited, intelligently organized book is a useful addition to the literature on cognitive approaches... I was intrigued to see the wide range of approaches included' - British Journal of Medical Psychology

`a most welcome contribution to the cognitive psychotherapy literature, particularly since it features British work, which is otherwise not very accessible... This much-needed collection of contemporary views and practice in cognitive psychotherapy is essential reading for committed cognitive psychotherapists and researchers. In addition, it will be valuable to trainers and trainees in the clinical professions... both readable and stimulating, it is to be recommended' - British Journal of Clinical Psychology

`if you have a particular interest in cognitive therapies - in practice, teaching or research - this book is well worth having a look at' - BPS Counselling Psychology Review

`presents a broad range of theoretical approaches... It will offer the mental health care professional food for thought and stimulate further reading' - Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy

`a book I'd feel happy to recommend, achieving its aim of presenting a `sample of recent developments' constructively and usefully' - Clinical Psychology Forum

`a useful survey of how the field is developing' - Bethlem & Maudsley Gazette
