Author(s): Frank Wills & Diana Sanders
Diana Sanders and Frank Wills explain the central concepts on which cognitive therapy is based and describe how the model can effectively be put into practice. They take the reader through the stages of the therapeutic process, emphasising the practical skills involved and providing examples to illustrate each stage in the process. Reflecting recent developments in both theory and practice, the second edition of Cognitive Therapy has been fully revised and presents an up-to-date picture of how therapeutic change takes place across a 'network' of cognitive, emotional and behavioural functioning, re-inforcing the holistic trend identified in the first edition. The new edition also features new sections on: - applications of cognitive therapy - metacognition - mindfulness - the therapeutic relationship, and - behavioural experiments. As an accessible introduction to contemporary theory and practice, Cognitive Therapy is an ideal text for those working - or training to work - in the psychological therapies and mental health.
