The second edition of this acclaimed text is more than ever a useful clinical resource. Restructured and updated to reflect the current cognitive-behavioral practices, it provides an integrative approach to the most commonly encountered problems in therapy.

The authors - four experienced, practicing clinicians - summarize the principles of cognitive therapy and several of its common misconceptions. They review the significance of self-correcting assessment skills, the principles of the case conceptualization process, and the therapeutic techniques that form a foundation for a strategic approach to intervention. They examine the treatment of Axis I disorders and personality disorders plus a new section on special populations. Concluding this discussion, the authors provide suggestions for overcoming problems that are frequently encountered in clinical practice and recommend ways for assessing and improving one's skills in the practice of cognitive therapy. Clinical vignettes and verbatim interactions are included throughout the text to illustrate the possible use of a variety of interventions.

Clinical Applications of Cognitive Therapy, Second Edition will be a valuable asset to clinicians, researchers, and advanced students of behavior therapy, clinical and counseling psychology, psychiatry, and psychiatric social work.
