Acceptance and Mindfulness in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Understanding and Applying the New Therapies

James Herbert, Evan Forman, Eds

What has been missing in the midst of partisan battles between orthodox CBT therapists and enthusiastic proponents of newer acceptance/mindfulness approaches is a reasoned, scientifically grounded discourse that would help researchers and clinicians alike sort through the various claims and counter-claims. This book, skillfully conceived and edited by James Herbert and Evan Forman, provides just such a sober and open-minded appraisal of a trend that has sometimes suffered both from too much hype from one side and too sweeping a rejection by the other. It encourages careful consideration of both positions and can advance evidence-based psychosocial therapy both conceptually and procedurally which will benefit us all.

Cognitive Therapy in a Nutshell

Wendy Dryden

Cognitive therapy is one of the most widely used approaches within counseling and psychotherapy today.

Cognitive Therapy in a Nutshell solves this problem by providing the key elements of cognitive therapy theory and practice in a very concise and accessible way.

Helping clients to develop and maintain more helpful viewpoints in tackling their problems is the focus of the therapy. 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.

Russ Harris

A growing body of scientific research suggests that we are all caught in a powerful psychological trap: a vicious cycle, whereby the more we strive for happiness, the more we suffer.

ACT helps people to create a rich, full and meaningful life, whilst effectively handling the pain that inevitably comes with it. It has been clinically proven to be highly effective in a wide range of psychological disorders, ranging from depression and anxiety to drug addiction and schizophrenia. This book shows you how to apply ACT in your own life to increase self-awareness, develop emotional intelligence, enhance relationships, create a sense of meaning and purpose, access a transcendent sense of self, and fundamentally transform painful thoughts and feelings so they have much less impact and influence over your life.
