Offering a unique philosophical, theoretical and process-focused introduction to one of the cornerstones of CBT: assessment and case formulation.
Updated and expanded to take account of the vast developments in the field of CBT since its first publication, this second edition follows a clear two part structure:
- Part One introduces trainees to the key theory, practice and processes of assessment and case formulation
- Part Two provides practical illustrations of the theory through 12 extended case studies, considering both ‘simple’ and ‘complex’ presenting issues. Each of these chapters follows a set structure to enable easy comparison.
Offering all they need to know about this crucial part of their training, this is essential reading for trainees on any CBT course.
This book offers clear but comprehensive explanations and guidance of the assessment process and the essential components of case conceptualizations. It provides useful and easy to follow case formulations, illustrated with realistic case studies. A very useful book for all CBT therapist and a must have for all CBT trainees.
Very relevant to practitioner training. Good resource for guiding decision making around formulation of client problems.
One I have used extensively when researching for our CBT course. Accessible and informative, giving examples which help illustrate the points raised, Essential.
