“This text is easy and enjoyable to read. The authors do a nice job of explaining hard-to-understand therapeutic concepts in a manner that is easy to understand.”

Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (on previous edition)

“The authors' many years of combined supervisory experience clearly comes through with their insights and pragmatic solutions to the many problems encountered by initiate therapists....A text that should be required reading in any graduate training program in psychology, regardless of orientation....Will benefit all starting therapists and may even help some supervisors do a better job!”

Child and Family Behavior Therapy

“This is a great read on how to apply cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to different clients. It is excellent for beginning therapists to begin using some of the clinical advice to help their clients….The book covers using the CBT treatment process from beginning to termination with various clients. It is very helpful in explaining the basics of CBT. The appendix is also very helpful in that it provides a wide variety of other resources to help aspiring clinicians with other readings in CBT.”

Doody’s Review Service

“Ledley and her esteemed colleagues have packed even more pearls of clinical wisdom into their second edition of this truly important book. It is filled with case examples, illustrative dialogues, hints, and suggestions to help clinicians sidestep potential pitfalls and enable their clients to benefit maximally from CBT. The material on how to make good use of supervision and continue to grow as a therapist is what clinched it for me—this book is required reading in my course on CBT for anxiety disorders.”

—Jonathan S. Abramowitz, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

“I wish this kind of clinical resource had been available when I was a doctoral student learning CBT! This book covers it all—ethics, theory, case formulation, supervision, therapy, follow-up documentation, and professional development. A wonderful resource for the psychotherapist-in-training or for the experienced practitioner new to CBT methods. Most highly recommended as a classroom or practicum textbook.”

—Bruce A. Thyer, PhD, LCSW, College of Social Work, Florida State University

“This book will be immensely helpful to young clinicians attempting to master the structure and processes of CBT, from the scheduling of the first visit to the final booster session. Leading CBT therapists with years of clinical and supervisory experience provide extremely clear and practical suggestions in the context of real-world clinical vignettes. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to become a CBT therapist.”

—Neil A. Rector, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Toronto, Canada

“This book astutely anticipates the challenges of clinical practice, demystifies the process of therapy, and fully prepares the novice clinician. Combining a matter-of-fact tone with illuminating case examples, the book is bound to instill confidence in the beginning therapist. This is an essential text for any course on CBT. The second edition incorporates the latest empirical research on therapy process and includes a helpful epilogue on continued growth as a therapist.”

—Christine Purdon, PhD, CPsych, Department of Psychology, University of Waterloo, Canada
