"What should I do when a client asks me personal questions?" "How do my client's multiple problems fit together, and which ones should we focus on in treatment?" This engaging text—now revised and updated—has helped tens of thousands of students and novice cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) practitioners build skills and confidence for real-world clinical practice. Hands-on guidance is provided for developing strong therapeutic relationships and navigating each stage of treatment; vivid case material illustrates what CBT looks like in action. Aided by sample dialogues, questions to ask, and helpful checklists, readers learn how to conduct assessments, create strong case conceptualizations, deliver carefully planned interventions, comply with record-keeping requirements, and overcome frequently encountered challenges all along the way.

“Prepares the beginning therapist for all phases of CBT, from the first phone call to providing booster sessions. 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....We have used the book with beginning therapists in our doctoral training program, and it has received rave reviews.”

Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (on the first 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 (on the first edition)


“This is a great read on how to apply CBT to different clients….It is very helpful in explaining the basics of CBT.”
