Choice Reviews

“With an all-star cast of authors, Leahy has produced one of the best volumes in recent years on key CBT concepts and treatment methods. This book is rich with clinical wisdom and new insights. Beginning with the opening chapter by Aaron T. Beck, readers are treated to masterful accounts of CBT's depth, reach, and continuing evolution.”

—Jesse H. Wright, MD, PhD, Professor and Kolb Endowed Chair of Outpatient Psychiatry and Director, Depression Center, University of Louisville

“Leahy has done it again. This fascinating book reviews the foundations of classical cognitive therapy and brings them up to date with the latest advances in science and practice. Contributors elucidate the cognitive factors that make people vulnerable to psychological disorders, describe how CBT strategies are used in treatment, and show how changing cognitive styles and processes is essential for improvement to occur. This book would be most useful for a course on the theoretical foundations of cognitive therapy.”

—Lata K. McGinn, PhD, Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University

“This volume offers a comprehensive understanding of where CBT has been, where it is now, and where it is going. Refreshing, brisk, and authoritative, the book presents novel, compelling theoretical advances, and details their clinical and research applications. It is a 'must have' for any clinician or researcher who works within the CBT framework or is thinking about doing so. A riveting read.”

—Christine Purdon, PhD, CPsych, Professor and Director of Clinical Training, Department of Psychology, University of Waterloo, Canada
