There is a growing movement across health care to adopt empirically supported practice. Treatments for Psychological Problems and Syndromes makes an important contribution by offering a comprehensive guide for adopting a more flexible approach to cognitive behavioural therapy. Edited by three recognized experts in the field of CBT, the text has three key aims: firstly to identify components of models describing specific psychological conditions that are empirically supported, poorly supported or unsupported; secondly to propose theoretical rationales for sequencing of interventions, and criteria for moving from one treatment procedure to the next; and thirdly to identify mechanisms of psychological syndromes that may interfere with established protocols in order to promote more informed treatment and improve outcomes. Written in clear and concise terms, this is an authoritative guide that will be relevant and useful to a wide range of readers from beginning clinicians to experienced practitioners.
An important new guide to flexible empirically supported practice in CBT.

Our current world is full of psychological disorders, and most of us suffer from some form of anxiety, occasional depression, sleep issues, etc. The first approach is often medication, which is far from ideal. This book, though aimed at clinical professionals, offers empirical data on the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy on many common disorders.
This book hits home for me because over the last year, I survived cancer and went through many psychological issues after – anxiety, insomnia, extreme fatigue, depression, etc. I visited a therapist 3 times and all she did was push medication. I quit seeing her, but later found it was a medical issue anyway – thyroiditis. Antidepressants would not have helped!
I took psychology in college and have had several experiences with CBT (post early life trauma, really bad marriage, etc.), this book is very interesting, though way over my head! I would recommend it to any professional in the field of psychology and mental health and will probably drop a copy off for the above mentioned therapist!
This is an extraordinary resource for professionals and even for those who they direct to use principles of CBT in teaching and working with children. This book is research based and clearly written in a way that makes it accessible to the rest of us. The research looks exhaustive.
I have mostly been reading about situations that I have dealt with like social anxiety, anxiety, sleep disorders, and PTSD. I have been on the receiving end for CBT for sleep disorders. That was pretty funny because the sleep doctor and I parted ways when she discovered that I stayed up late doing everything I couldn’t do during the day, from cleaning, reading, listening to music, watching movies. I will never forget her tone of voice when she said “YOU’RE.HAVING.FUN.” Having been on the receiving end of CBT made it even more interesting. I don’t think she should have gotten so upset.
The information is amazing. This book is brilliant in answering questions and has already worked as a resource in even knowing what questions to ask.
