Grounded in extensive research, this book presents a brief emotion-focused coping skills program that helps clients regulate their affective responses in stressful situations. Cognitive–affective stress management training (CASMT) promotes resilience by integrating cognitive-behavioral strategies with relaxation training, mindfulness, and other techniques. Systematic guidelines are provided for implementing CASMT with individuals or groups. The book includes detailed instructions for using induced affect, a procedure that elicits arousal in session and enables clients to practice new emotion regulation skills. Purchasers get access to a companion website where they can download and print the volume's 16 reproducible handouts and forms in a convenient 8½“ x 11” size, and can also download a muscle relaxation training audio track.
