A series of quick-reference, multi-media guides to key protocols all therapists need to know.
Rigorously field-tested by on-the-ground clinicians, these guidebooks - sold separately or as a set - provide an easy-to-use, evidence-based summary of five core therapy techniques: (1) Cognitive-behavioral Therapy for Depression, (2) Cognitive-behavioral Therapy for Anxiety, (3) Interpersonal Therapy for Depression, (4) Motivational Interviewing for Co-morbid Disorders, (5) Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for Affect Dysregulation and (6) Acheiving Psychotherapy Effectiveness. Self-questionnaires, case studies, role play transcripts, diagrams, and exercises make it easy for front-line case workers and therapists of all kinds to learn the fundamentals of the modalities and put them to use immediately. Each guide includes a DVD of sample therapy sessions that implement the protocol, as well as laminated pocket reminder cards. An on-the-go package of practical tools that busy clinicians won't want to be without.

"Psychotherapy Essentials To Go is a truly impressive series of books. Elevating pragmatics over dogma, it is grounded in the wisdom of front-line psychotherapists who adapt the core principles of empirically supported psychotherapies to flexibly address a myriad of clinical issues. I can think of no other series of psychotherapy handbooks as skillfully concise and yet thorough. It will quickly become a standard reference for teaching and enhancing clinical competence." -Zindel V. Segal, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Psychology in Mood Disorders, University of Toronto-Scarborough; author of The Mindful Way Through Depression
