Comprehensive Casebook of Cognitive Therapy Book Excerpt:

This is the golden age of cognitive therapy. Its popularity among society and the professional community is growing by leaps and bounds. What is it and what are its limits? What is the fundamental nature of cognitive therapy? It is, to my way of thinking, simple but profound. To understand it, it is useful to think back to the history of behavior therapy, to the basic development made by Joseph Wolpe. In the 1950s, Wolpe astounded the therapeutic world and infuriated his colleagues by finding a simple cure for phobias. The psychoanalytic establishment held that phobias-irrational and intense fear of certain objects, such as cats-were just surface manifesta tions of deeper, underlying disorders. The psychoanalysts said their source was the buried fear in male children of castration by the father in retaliation for the son's lust for his mother. For females, this fear is directed toward the opposite sex parent. The biomedical theorists, on the other hand, claimed that some as yet undiscovered disorder in brain chemistry must be the underlying problem. Both groups insisted that to treat only the patient's fear of cats would do no more good than it would to put rouge over measles. Wolpe, however, reasoned that irrational fear of something isn't just a symptom of a phobia; it is the whole phobia.

Summary of Feeling Good Book Excerpt:

Summary of Feeling Good by David D. Burns | Includes Analysis Preview: Feeling Good by Dr. David D. Burns is a self-help guide to using cognitive therapy (CT) as an effective, scientifically proven tool for combating depression of all degrees, especially when used in combination with therapy and possibly medication. CT is based on the idea that people’s perceptions about themselves, their relationships, their job, and their overall life will shape their feelings. When people can change their thinking, they can drastically and often rapidly improve their mood. Research has proven that CT is often as effective as medication. Feeling Good offers a comprehensive strategy for changing negative perceptions and includes tools for doing so, such as mood assessment and targeted writing techniques. Once people have addressed and corrected distorted thinking, they live happier, healthier, and more productive lives. A commonly held belief is that external circumstances will determine an individual’s emotional state. According to the CT model, emotional disorders, such as… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

The Handbook of Adult Clinical Psychology Book Excerpt:

The second edition of the Handbook of Adult Clinical Psychology: An Evidence Based Practice Approach like its predecessor provides clinical psychologists in training with a comprehensive practice handbook to help build the skills necessary to complete a clinical placement in the field of adult mental health. While practical in orientation, the book is based solidly on empirical evidence.Building on the success of the previous edition this handbook has been extensively revised in a number of ways. Throughout the book, the text, references, and website addresses and have been updated to reflect important developments since the publication the first edition. Recent research findings on the epidemiology, aetiology, course, outcome, assessment and treatment of all psychological problems considered in this volume have been incorporated into the text. Account has been taken of changes in the diagnosis and classification of psychological problems reflected in the DSM-5. Chapters on ADHD in adults, emotion focused therapy, radically open dialectical behaviour therapy, and schema therapy have been added. The book is divided into 6 sections: Section 1 covers conceptual frameworks for practice (lifespan development; classification and epidemiology; CBT, psychodynamic, emotion focused, systemic and bio-medical models; and general assessment procedures) Section 2 deals with mood problems (depression, bipolar disorder, suicide risk, and anger management) Section 3 focuses on anxiety problems (social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and depersonalization disorder) Section 4 deals with psychological problems linked to physical health (health anxiety, somatization, chronic pain, adjustment to cancer, and eating disorders) Section 5 focuses on other significant psychological problems that come to the attention of clinical psychologist in adult mental health services (ADHD in adults, alcohol and other drug problems, psychosis, and psychological problems in older adults) Section 6 contains chapters on therapeutic approaches to psychological distress related to complex childhood trauma (dialectical behaviour therapy for borderline personality disorder, racially open dialectical behaviour for over-controlled presentations, and schema therapy). Each of the chapters on clinical problems explains how to assess and treat the condition in an evidence-based way with reference to case material. Interventions from cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, interpersonal/systemic and biomedical approaches are described, where there is evidence that they are effective for the problem in question. Skill building exercises and further reading for psychologists and patients are included at the end of each chapter. This book is one of a set of three volumes which cover the lion’s share of the curriculum for clinical psychologists in training in the UK and Ireland. The other two volumes are the Handbook of Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology, Third Edition (by Alan Carr) and the Handbook of Intellectual Disability and Clinical Psychology Practice, Second Edition edited by Alan Carr, Christine Linehan, Gary O’Reilly, Patricia Noonan Walsh, & John McEvoy).

Self-help is big business, but alas, not always a scientific one. Self-help books, websites, and movies abound and are important sources of psychological advice for millions of Americans. But how can you sift through them to find the ones that work? Self-Help That Works is an indispensable guide that enables readers to identify effective self-help materials and distinguish them from those that are potentially misleading or even harmful. Six scientist-practitioners bring careful research, expertise, and a dozen national studies to the task of choosing and recommending self-help resources. Designed for both laypersons and mental-health professionals, this book critically reviews multiple types of self-help resources, from books and autobiographies to films, online programs, support groups, and websites, for 41 different behavioral disorders and life challenges. The revised edition of this award-winning book now features online self-help resources, expanded content, and new chapters focusing on autism, bullying, chronic pain, GLB issues, happiness, and nonchemical addictions. Each chapter updates the self-help resources launched since the previous edition and expands the material. The final chapters provide key strategies for consumers evaluating self-help as well as for professionals integrating self-help into treatment. All told, this updated edition of Self-Help that Works evaluates more than 2,000 self-help resources and brings together the collective wisdom of nearly 5,000 mental health professionals. Whether seeking self-help for yourself, loved ones, or patients, this is the go-to, research-based guide with the best advice on what works.

Ten Days to Self Esteem Book Excerpt:

Ten Days to Self-esteem The Leader's Manual To date, Dr. David Burns's classic Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy has sold more than two and a half million copies. Many people are unaware of the real secret of this book's phenomenal success. Published studies have shown that two thirds of the depressed people who have read Dr. Burns's Feeling Good recovered on their own in just four weeks without any professional treatment at all! Even more astonishing is the fact that 77% of these readers maintained their positive outlook for at least two years after reading Feeling Good. That's why Feeling Good has become a perennial best-seller -- because this book provides hope, compassion, and actual healing for people suffering from depression. Now Dr. Burns offers a powerful new tool with the creation of his Ten Days to Self-esteem: The Leader's Manual. This book, along with the accompanying participant's workbook (Ten Days to Self-esteem), will show you how to develop exciting short-term groups -- based on the principles in Feeling Good -- that will help people from all walks of life overcome depression and develop greater self-esteem and greater joy in daily living. Extensive pilot testing of this program reveals that the groups are suitable for high-functioning, sophisticated people with mild mood problems as well as for less educated people and those with severe- emotional difficulties. The groups can be conducted by mental health professionals in a variety of settings, including: hospitals and clinics day treatment programs high schools and universities corporations twelve-step programs as well as other self-help organizations churches and synagogues correctional facilities HMOs and EAPs This is a time of great challenge for mental health professionals because of severe cutbacks in funding for psychiatric and psychological services. HMOs and other managed health care providers are asking, "Can you provide quality outpatient treatment in only a handful of sessions? Can you provide a meaningful and healing inpatient experience in a matter of days instead of weeks or months?" This book reveals an entirely new, cost-effective model for helping the majority of people quickly and compassionately. This ten-session training program includes topics such as: "The Price of Happiness" (Step 1) "How to Break Out of a Bad Mood" (Step 4) "Self-esteem -What Is It? How Do I Get It?" (Step 7) "The Perfectionist's Script for Self-defeat" (Step 8) "A Prescription for Procrastinators" (Step 9) "Self-esteem and Spirituality" (Step 10) This Leader's Manual contains clear and detailed instructions for every session in the program. Even if you do not have extensive group experience, the manual will show you how to make your very first group a resounding success. As you develop the program, you will be breaking new ground for people suffering from depression, loneliness, anxiety, and addictions who wish to enrich their lives and feel good about themselves once again!
