This one-of-a-kind resource provides the busy practitioner with empirically supported treatments for seven frequently encountered disorders: major depression, generalized anxiety, panic and agoraphobia, PTSD, social phobia, specific phobia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Serving as ready-to-use treatment packages, chapters describe basic cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques and how to tailor them to each disorder. Also featured are diagnostic flow charts; therapist forms for assessment and record keeping; client handouts and homework sheets; and session-by-session case examples. Tips for troubleshooting common therapeutic roadblocks are presented, as are strategies for ensuring third-party payment authorization. The searchable CD-ROM enables clinicians to rapidly generate individualized treatment plans, print extra copies of therapist and client forms, find the facts about commonly prescribed medications, and learn more about cognitive-behavioral techniques. Facilitating effective treatment that is adapted to the realities of the typical outpatient setting, including the demands of managed care, this book and CD-ROM will be prized by novice and experienced clinicians alike.
"This pragmatic handbook presents the nitty-gritty details of empirically supported cognitive-behavioral conceptualizations and interventions for clients with depression and anxiety. It will be particularly useful to clinicians functioning in the managed care environment. The authors are obviously astute and experienced therapists. Clinicians who read this book and follow its methods can feel confident they are providing top-quality care." --Jacqueline B. Persons, PhD, Director, San Francisco Bay Area Center for Cognitive Therapy, Oakland, California
"This book is a landmark contribution to the growing literature on cognitive therapy for mental disorders. It is reader-friendly and deals with complex issues in a clear, understandable fashion. It is just the answer for clinicians working in managed care settings as well as in private practice." --Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia
