Developing Cognitive-Behavioural Counselling

160 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
In this volume, the authors develop the cognitive-behavioral counseling approach by offering newer conceptualizations of many common client problems. Developing Cognitive-Behavioral Counseling provides suggestions for effective interventions that will take account of early maladaptive interpretations of situations and of the presence of personality disorders. This informative volume tackles the specifics of problems as diverse as surviving in a family with a personality disordered member and working with post-traumatic stress disorder. In addition, the authors examine recent developments in the counseling of clients with anxiety and depression and highlight hitherto neglected issues such as the use of groups and the assessment of counselor competence. For both students and practicing professionals, Developing Cognitive-Behavioral Counseling offers practical suggestions supported by case studies and examples to help counselors with the issues they face day to day.

`The book achieves its aims with respect to helping counsellors to think how their work can be refined with a cognitive-behavioural approach. It is a useful guide to clinical psychologists in training and other mental health professionals' - Behaviour Research and Therapy
