Description : The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies provides a contemporary and comprehensive illustration of the wide range of evidence-based psychotherapy tools available to both clinicians and researchers. Chapters are written by the most prominent names in cognitive and behavioral theory, assessment, and treatment, and they provide valuable insights concerning the theory, development, and future directions of cognitive and behavioral interventions. Unlike other handbooks that provide a collection of intervention chapters but do not successfully tie these interventions together, the editors have designed a volume that not only takes the reader through underlying theory and philosophies inherent to a cognitive and behavioral approach, but also includes chapters regarding case formulation, requisite professional cognitive and behavioral competencies, and integration of multiculturalism into clinical practice. The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies clarifies terms present in the literature regarding cognitive and behavioral interventions and reveals the rich variety, similarities, and differences among the large number of cognitive and behavioral interventions that can be applied individually or combined to improve the lives of patients.
Description : Although behaviorism made a major contribution to educational practice and created opportunities for psychologists in schools, behavioral techniques have mostly been applied in areas peripheral to teaching children new problem-solving or content mastery skills. The application of recent developments in cognitive psychology and cognitive-behavioral therapy in educational settings has also remained more a promise than a reality. COGNITIVE-BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOLOGY IN THE SCHOOLS argues persuasively that cognitive psychology has much to offer in the educational setting including an expanded role for school psychologists, beyond classroom management and psychoeducational assessment. Toward this end, this volume provides a unifying theoretical framework for applying new developments to the delivery of school psychological and educational services. To facilitate the integration of cognitive-behavioral theories into educational practice, the bulk of the book is organized according to the three primary levels of service offered by school psychologists: assessment, teaching and direct intervention, and indirect intervention. An opening section provides the historical and conceptual context. Reflecting the competence orientation of cognitive-behavioral management, individual chapters in this volume explore different aspects of competence--academic, personal, and social--and present a variety of techniques for instilling self control and problem-solving strategies. Beginning with assessment issues, the book moves to the specific application of cognitive-behavioral methods to reading, spelling, math, and writing instruction. There are chapters focusing on the use of CBM for social and emotional problems, with hyperactive and impulsive children, and children with handicaps and learning disabilities. The final chapters address the prevention of mental health problems in schools and the need for system-wide changes in the schools. The volume also provides a critical review of the theoretical and empirical bases for suggested applications. Limitations of applications are noted, and areas for future research are delineated. COGNITIVE-BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOLOGY IN THE SCHOOLS is targeted at school psychologists, child clinical psychologists, and special educators. The book would also be an appropriate text for graduate courses in assessment, child behavior therapy and counseling, and special education instructional methods. The material gathered here will challenge researchers and those involved with teacher education.

Description : It is particularly gratifying to prepare a second edition of a book, because there is the necessary impli cation that the first edition was well received. Moreover, now an opportunity is provided to correct the problems or limitations that existed in the first edition as well as to address recent developments in the field. Thus, we are grateful to our friends, colleagues, and students, as well as to the reviewers who have expressed their approval of the first edition and who have given us valuable input on how the revision could best be structured. Perhaps the first thing that the reader will notice about the second edition is that it is more extensive than the first. The volume currently has 41 chapters, in contrast to the 31 chapters that comprised the earlier version. Chapters 3, 9, 29, and 30 of the first edition either have been dropped or were combined, whereas 14 new chapters have been added. In effect, we are gratified in being able to reflect the continued growth of behavior therapy in the 1980s. Behavior therapists have addressed an ever-increasing number of disorders and behavioral dysfunctions in an increasing range of populations. The most notable advances are taking place in such areas as cognitive approaches, geriatrics, and behavioral medicine, and also in the treatment of childhood disorders.
