“Provides an excellent and comprehensive discussion of the basic structure and implementation of CBT techniques offered in a group format. The book is a must-read for beginning group therapists, providing in-depth coverage on how to perform behavioral strategies in a group, establish group rules, interact with problem members, work with a cotherapist, and decide between sticking with the agenda versus pursuing unplanned group interaction. Important questions are raised in a thoughtful manner....We wholeheartedly recommend this book to those interested in researching and conducting CBGT and endorse the recommendations regarding future directions to maximize group process integration in CBT groups.”

International Journal of Group Psychotherapy

“This is the book I would have liked to be able to read when I started running CBT groups sixteen years ago....What I found particularly helpful about this book is that from the start, the authors acknowledge that CBT groups are 'more than techniques delivered "simultaneously" to multiple clients.' The focus of the book is therefore 'the integration of CBT strategies, and the understanding and enhancement of group process to aid in learning and understanding cognitive and behavioural strategies.' This is a considerably more sophisticated approach to group CBT than has previously been available in the literature....This book will be a very valuable resource for professionals setting up and running CBT groups for a wide range of clients, as well as for professionals supervising CBT groups, and is highly recommended.”

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews

“This is a groundbreaking volume. Unlike other books on CBT with groups, this one highlights the importance of group processes and structure. The authors provide detailed descriptions of how clinicians can manage these aspects of practice more effectively to improve outcomes. The book also addresses common comorbidities and other thorny, real-world issues that are often neglected in the group CBT literature.”

—Ronald W. Toseland, PhD, University at Albany, State University of New York

“This impressive volume richly details the challenges and rewards of providing CBT in a multiperson context. Group leaders, who face the demanding task of structuring therapeutic content while simultaneously leaving room for therapeutic process, will find themselves ably supported by the authors' sophisticated integrative philosophy and clinically astute suggestions. This book will set the standard for group-based CBT for years to come.”

—Zindel V. Segal, PhD, Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry, University of Toronto–Scarborough, Canada

“An excellent addition to any therapist's library. This volume nicely combines the research literature and sound group protocols with practical advice that every group therapist—beginning or experienced—can use. This volume is an outstanding example of evidence-based practice. I would definitely use this book in a graduate psychotherapy course. Group therapy has many advantages over individual therapy, and this volume will help many more therapists use the group format. This is easily the most important volume on CBT in groups today. The depth of coverage and broad range of disorders will make it useful in many settings.”

—Debra A. Hope, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Nebraska–Lincoln

“This is a wonderful, original, and highly needed book addressing the very practical problem of providing CBT in a group format. The authors thoughtfully integrate the scholarly clinical literature on group therapy with that of evidence-based, protocol-driven CBT therapies for individual DSM-IV mood, anxiety, and eating disorders. Given the pressing need to make these efficacious treatments available to large numbers of people, group therapy makes a lot of sense. However, the authors go beyond this practical rationale to explain clearly the important advantages of working in groups. As a primarily individual therapist, I felt excited by the idea that group work may be superior, and have become motivated to try this modality. This book sets a new standard for the field, and will be useful for psychiatric residents, clinical psychologists, and social workers who have some familiarity with psychopathology and are interested in learning how to do group therapy.”
