Cognitive Therapy in a Nutshell offers clear explanations of the fundamental models used to treat clients including the information-processing model, and the three cognitive levels examined during therapy ??? automatic thoughts, underlying assumptions/rules, and core beliefs (schemas). The authors also provide a valuable case study of a client with social phobia to demonstrate how cognitive therapy works in action. Cognitive Therapy in a Nutshell also explores the techniques involved in: Eliciting and examining negative automatic thoughts Uncovering and examining underlying assumptions, rules and core beliefs Maintaining gains from therapy This book will be invaluable to those coming to cognitive therapy for the first time, and who want to gain a full understanding of the basics of the approach.
