Overall, this book provides a clear overview not only of best practice in using low intensity CBT but also how to be a good scientist-practitioner, regardless of the therapy modality. Concise and clear in its presentation, it will engage and inform the reader, whether read cover to cover or selectively.
'An engaging textbook which explores 'low intensity interventions' and modes of delivery whilst placing equal emphasis on the therapeutic value of the relationship between service user and practitioner' - Jane Briddon, APIMH Primary Mental Health Care MSC, University of Manchester
This book is a really useful resource I strongly recommend to the students on our Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner Programme. It combines up to date theoretical understanding with useful practical guidance for assessment, treatment and supervision.
A great book, a must read when training as a low intensity CBT therapist
This is a core tect for Low intensity CBT practitioners.
This is a core text for PWP students.
This is an excellent and comprehensive text book for students studying low intensity CBT interventions and beyond, as they enter routine practice. The book is written in a clear and accessible style and does full justice to practice in this area.
a useful supplement for our psychology with counselling programme
A comprehensive overview of low intensity work that is presented in an easy to read format.
Excellent guide for PWP practitioners we have on placement
Good structure to guide the reader through the process.
This book certainly helps practitioners to understand/develop their practice. Whilst a low key approach is taken, I suggest that a basic knowledge of CBT is desirable - though not essential - in understanding the concepts/suggestions contained within.
Certainly worth a read if not purchase.
- This text provides a good introduction to cognitive and behavioural approaches.
- There is a clear review of the Stepped Care Model.
- Very good review of the PWP role as well as assessment and treatment sessions.
- Very good consideration of the use of Guided Self-Help at Step 2.
- There is good information on group work at Step 2 however this does not currently feature in the national curriculum.
- Good discussion around therapeutic alliance and common factor skills.
- Good troubleshooting sections around the Step 2 interventions.
This book is accessible, well laid out and very well written. It is the best text book available on low intensity CBT by far, and as such is a must for any Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner training programme. I have asked our university libarary to buy several copies, and recommended it to all my students as essential reading.
Absolutely excellent text. A must for all low intensity trainees
Although this would form only supplementary reading for a senior trainee, it helps to conceptualise this vital role in the Stepped care IAPT model. It is well laid out, it covers many areas that a student would need to consider as part of their Psychology journey. The chapters are comprehensive with excellent thinking points and also clinical examples to make the material come alive. My favorite chapter was Ch4 on the therapeutic relationship in CBT which provides detailsed guidance in understanding and thoughtfulness.
