From leading experts in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)—including CBT originator Aaron T. Beck and many who have worked closely with him—this book provides an overview of where the field is today and presents cutting-edge research and clinical applications. Contributors explain how Beck's cognitive model has been refined and tested over the last 45 years and describe innovative CBT approaches that integrate mindfulness, imagery, emotion-focused interventions, and other strategies. Chapters on specific clinical problems cover the conceptualization and treatment of depression, anxiety disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder, insomnia, suicidality, substance abuse, couple and family problems, bipolar disorder, psychosis, and personality disorders.


“With an all-star cast of authors, Leahy has produced one of the best volumes in recent years on key CBT concepts and treatment methods. This book is rich with clinical wisdom and new insights. Beginning with the opening chapter by Aaron T. Beck, readers are treated to masterful accounts of CBT's depth, reach, and continuing evolution.”

—Jesse H. Wright, MD, PhD, Professor and Kolb Endowed Chair of Outpatient Psychiatry and Director, Depression Center, University of Louisville

“Leahy has done it again. This fascinating book reviews the foundations of classical cognitive therapy and brings them up to date with the latest advances in the science and practice. Contributors elucidate the cognitive factors that make people vulnerable to psychological disorders, describe how CBT strategies are used in treatment, and show how changing cognitive styles and processes is essential for improvement to occur. This book would be most useful for a course on the theoretical foundations of cognitive therapy.”

—Lata K. McGinn, PhD, Director, CBT Training Program for Anxiety and Depression, Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
