This indispensable book has given many tens of thousands of practitioners a wealth of evidence-based tools for maximizing the power of cognitive therapy and tailoring it to individual clients.

Each technique includes vivid case examples and sample dialogues. Featuring 125 reproducible forms, the print book has a large-size format for easy photocopying; purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

Critical Acclaim:

“In this second edition of his classic work, Leahy provides a plethora of invaluable techniques for creating therapeutic change in cognitive therapy. Trainees and experienced therapists will find this volume an indispensable repository of strategies that work. The volume contains tools for use with clients and is expanded to consider newer approaches drawing from metacognitive therapy, acceptance and mindfulness, and the author's innovative work on emotional schemas.”—Adrian Wells, PhD, School of Psychological Sciences, University of Manchester, United Kingdom

“Leahy again provides a master class on cognitive and cognitive-behavioral interventions for a wide range of psychological problems. The second edition not only provides expert guidance on traditional cognitive therapy, but also includes newer elements such as behavioral activation, acceptance, and mindfulness. Leahy blends scientific evidence with extensive clinical experience to create a compelling teaching experience for the reader. This book belongs on the shelf of any mental health clinician who wants to do state-of-the-art cognitive therapy.”—David F. Tolin, PhD, ABPP, Director, Anxiety Disorders Center, The Institute of Living–Hartford Hospital

“Leahy—one of our most astute and sophisticated cognitive therapists—synthesizes many years of clinical wisdom with a sophisticated understanding of current research. This book serves as a wonderful resource for novice cognitive-behavioral clinicians, but also offers much to skilled practitioners, who can find ways to augment their favorite strategies and techniques with the latest clinical advances.”—John H. Riskind, PhD, Department of Psychology, George Mason University; editor, International Journal of Cognitive Therapy

“Well written and user-friendly….An exceptionally useful resource for cognitive therapists. It is likely to benefit anyone from the student to the expert in cognitive therapy...This is an excellent volume that will find a home not on the bookshelf, but in the hands and laps of many practitioners.”—Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews (on the first edition)

“Dr. Leahy has done a great service by attempting to add vitality to the cognitive therapy line of scrimmage. The techniques he outlines will help engage the patient and the therapist....Leahy's approach is an empirical one/m-/not one size fits all: find what works for the patient....This volume is an excellent introduction, refresher, and handbook for the busy general psychiatrist who wants to expand his or her therapeutic armamentaria.”—Journal of Clinical Psychiatry (on the first edition)

“I welcome Leahy's text to our academic reading list.”—Psychiatric Services (Eben L. McClenahan, MD, MS, on the first edition)
