"Anyone who wants to find out about Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and how to apply it in practice need look no further. The second edition of Beck's excellent, bestselling book provides an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to delivering the various elements of CBT. The book offers a comprehensive introduction for those new to CBT, with illustrative case examples throughout; it is also an essential resource for experienced cognitive therapists who want to brush up on their knowledge and skills. It should definitely be a core text in every CBT training program." - Alison Brabban, Durham University, UK "When I want students to learn how to conduct cognitive therapy, Cognitive Therapy: Basics and Beyond is the first book I assign. Before I assigned this book for the first time, I reread it to make certain it was as useful as I remembered. It was - and to my surprise, I even found that many of what I had come to think of as my own special insights in training supervisees were actually right there on the page. When students have mastered this text, Judith Beck's Cognitive Therapy for Challenging Problems is a natural (and useful) next step." - Thomas L. Rodebaugh, Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, USA
