“As the first fully realized manual guiding CT for depression, this work can be said without hyperbole to have revolutionized the field of psychotherapy. Now a new generation of psychotherapists will benefit greatly from this updated and expanded second edition that integrates the considerable wisdom acquired in the ensuing decades. Beck contributed substantially to this revision before his death at age 100, and his coauthors include the leading authorities in CT today. Every clinician treating depression will benefit from this easy-to-follow CT guide.”

—David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Psychiatry and Founder, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University

“This eagerly awaited second edition brings the field up to date with an integration of theory, research, and practice. The theme of helping people with depression shift from seeing themselves as incompetent or defective to seeing their difficulties as resulting from use of ineffective strategies is a welcome reframing of depression treatment. Even experienced cognitive therapists will find guidance to improve their effectiveness and correct 'drift' from best practices.”

—Christine A. Padesky, PhD, author of The Clinician’s Guide to CBT Using Mind Over Mood

“The second edition of this seminal text has been extensively rewritten to include numerous theoretical, research, and clinical advances. The review of treatment outcome research since the original edition—written by luminaries in the field who had a large part in shaping these discoveries—makes the book extremely worthwhile on its own. The addition of practical demonstrations, including an extensive case example, only adds to the book's utility as a teaching tool. This is an ideal text for undergraduate classes such as Introduction to Clinical Psychology, as well as graduate courses addressing evidence-based therapeutic techniques, clinical conceptualization, or historical developments in psychosocial intervention.”

—John Young, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Mississippi
