From the Publisher
Praise for The Comprehensive Clinician’s Guide to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
“This is a marvelous addition to the literature supporting therapists in learning and applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy written by two master clinicians and educators. The patient worksheets alone would be worth the purchase of the book, even for experienced clinicians. The text is practical, straightforward, and filled with specific examples of the principles in practice.” — Donna M Sudak, MD, Immediate Past President, American Association of Directors of Psychiatric Residency Training
“Clear, practical, broad, and entirely evidence-based, The Comprehensive Clinician’s Guide to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is rightly named and is a volume which belongs on the shelf of any clinician wishing to understand the practice of contemporary CBT. Students and trainees will find the book to be a useful primer on CBT, whereas seasoned clinicians will find wisdom in the author’s spare, focused approach. They direct our attention to what is most important in practice, ensuring high-fidelity CBT. This guide is optimistic in tone, emphasizing the role of “confidence” as a foundation of clinical change. Combining elements of efficacy and hope, “confidence” is something clinicians and their patients may gain from this simple volume.” — Mark Reinecke, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Northwestern University

Why We Wrote This Book
The Comprehensive Clinician’s Guide to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy provides clinicians with a cognitive conceptualization for a multitude of psychological disorders based within the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), as well as a variety of CBT-based interventions for addressing these specific difficulties. Our experiences as clinicians, trainers, and supervisors in large-scale CBT dissemination projects have allowed us to create a book that meets the needs of clinicians in community mental health, private practice, and hospital and organizational settings, as well as the needs of supervisors, trainers, and teachers in training programs, practicum settings, and in the classroom.
