Intended for both trainees and practitioners in the mental health professions, the book details the five basic components of cogntive-behavior therapy in practice: developing an individualized case formulation, session structuring, activity scheduling, the thought record, and the schema change method. A thorough case study is included to illustrate how the therapist uses the case formulation to plan and carry out treatment. Examples of each major intervention are also provided as well as a demonstration of how the assessment and intervention strategies are woven together over the course of treatment. This is the perfect teaching tool for those working in clinical, counseling, and health psychology as well as social work, psychiatry, psychiatric nurses, marriage and family counseling, and pastoral counseling.
