Reflection in CBT
Developing skills and competency in CBT is a complex process of which self-observation and self-reflection are an essential part. In this new book, leading figures Beverly Haarhoff and Richard Thwaites outline the rationale for a focus on self-reflective practice in CBT, before offering practical and accessible guidelines demonstrating how this can be achieved in training and practice.
Highlighting relevant research throughout and using case studies to illustrate theory in practice, ten chapters consider:
- reflection in training and in supervision and self-supervision,
- reflecting on the therapeutic relationship, on our sociocultural perceptions and biases and on client feedback
- how reflection is vital to self-care and to becoming a better therapist, supervisor and trainer.
This is an essential read for trainees in both high and low intensity CBT programmes, those on broader CBT courses, and for qualified practitioners working independently to enhance their self-reflective capacity.
A practical and accessible book. The chapter on self-practice/self-reflection has been particularly useful for our course.
This is a useful additional source for the self practice self reflection part of our CBT programme. The layout is clear and helpful, a lot of it is helpful for this group but there are also some really useful sections for therapists with more experience which are really useful
This is indeed very helpful, especially for my CBT trainees who are in placement to employ the best of the supervision they receive either from myself or supervisors at placements. It will be adopted as an essential reading from September 2016
