Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Case Studies


March 2012 | 264 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This book uniquely combines CBT with the Department of Health stepped care model to provide the first comprehensive case study-approach textbook. A step-by-step guide to using CBT, the book is structured around case examples of clients who present with the most commonly encountered conditions; from mild depression and GAD to more complex, enduring symptoms and diagnosis like OCD, personality disorder and social phobia.

The distinctive practical format is ideal in showing how to put the principles of CBT and stepped care into effect. As well as echoing postgraduate level training, it provides an insight into the experiences the trainee will encounter in real-world practice. Each chapter addresses a specific client condition and covers initial referral, presentation and assessment, case formulation, treatment interventions, evaluation of CBT strategies and discharge planning.

The book also includes learning exercises and clinical hints, as well as extensive reference to further CBT research, resources and reading. It will be invaluable for trainees on Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programs, and anyone studying graduate CBT courses.

Great text with well illustrated case examples for a range of different disorders.

As a lecturer I have found it's material useful in case discussions, formulations and role plays for students.

This is a good book. Being a researcher myself in the writings of case studies according to the CBT framework, I find this book essential for my students for they will be able to grasp not only the basics of how to write a CBT case study, but also to comprehend the elements which such research is constituted by

This is an excellent resource. Professor Thomas' in-depth knowledge of CBT enables him to present realistic case-studies. The introductory chapters provide a contemporary view of CBT before we are provided with detailed and varied case histories. I particularly liked the addition of a critique of each case study.

This book will be an ideal companion not only for students taking a particular CBT specialist module, but also to flesh out understanding of how CBT looks in practice for those with a more integrative perspective. I know of no other book which draws together case study material in such a way.
