In their established introduction to contemporary CBT theory and practice, Diana Sanders and Frank Wills show how therapeutic change takes place across a network of cognitive, emotional and behavioral functioning. They explain the central concepts of CBT and illustrate - with numerous case examples - how these can effectively be put into practice at each stage of the therapeutic process. The revised book now includes: • Recent developments in CBT, i.e., new settings and applications including guided self-help, computerized CBT, IAPT & stepped care • Two brand new chapters on mindfulness and increasing access to CBT • Extra case studies, chapter previews, exercises and further reading, plus an appendix of further resources • Coverage of a wider range of client issues This continues to be the ideal companion for those working - or training to work - in the psychological therapies and mental health.

CBT Practice
CBT practice

In these chapters on CBT practice, after looking at beginning and generally structuring CBT, we will focus on specific methods of intervention. The first of the chapters on methods covers interventions aimed at explicit cognitive modification of automatic thoughts, beliefs and thinking processes. Subsequent chapters will focus on behavioural methods, emotional change, mindfulness and schema change respectively. The final chapter discusses process issues such as difficulties and endings. For each element of conscious intervention, we discuss how to choose specific methods and techniques according to the client's formulation, and how technical and experiential approaches are used in practice.
