This is a comprehensive guide to the application of cognitive–behavioural therapy (CBT) throughout adult psychiatry. Case histories are used to illustrate the application as well as the theory underpinning the techniques. No school of CBT dominates in the book, but a range of CBT therapies are discussed, with particular focus on the evidence base for the interventions. This is a practical book that will guide and inform your treatment of patients. An indispensable resource for psychiatrists, CBT therapists and trainees, as well as a wide range of medical specialists.

• Covers all relevant adult mental health problems, from the most common to the unusual cases.
• Incorporates all schools of CBT including behavioural, cognitive, schema-focused and third generation therapies.
• Numerous and thought-provoking case examples showing the practical application of various therapies and demonstrating a rounded approach to patient treatment.
• Jargon-free, with a glossary of the most important terms.
• Key learning points at the end of each chapter.

Readership: All clinicians who use CBT in their practice, especially clinical psychiatrists and psychotherapists.

Quote from the author:

"The book is written with the minimum of theory, to promote understanding, but it relates to clinical scaenarios which illustrate the application. I have chosen to write it this way as I think clinicians learn best by thinking about clinical situations. I also wanted to write a book which is as broad in its approach as possible, plus cites the evidence for various approaches."
- Dr Lynne Drummond
