This unique book integrates our knowledge about psychopathology and general cognition. Each chapter illustrates a specific disorder, and may stand alone as a summary review of knowledge about that disorder. Each chapter also discusses and compares cognitive models in relation to each disorder as well as treatment and research implications of those models.

"The goal of the chapters in this book is to simply present current theories regarding the role of thought in various disorders to review the empirical data that support the different theoretical conceptions, and to consider ramifications of these viewpoints for therapy. In this goal, the volume is uniformly a success. Its organizational structure is excellent, with each chapter using a similar tripartite structure to provide information regarding recent theory, relevant data and suggestions for treatment. The individual chapters each give a thorough description of current views of cognition in psychopathology, with each chapter making an effort to clearly compare and contrast the different position, highlighting similarities and differences in a summary way that is extremely useful for either a newcomer to the area or for the experienced clinician who wishes to quickly become apprised of current theory it is very likely that this single volume contains most of the important information currently dealing with cognition in psychopathology, and this feature alone makes it a useful addition to the library of basic and applied researchers in this field, as well as practicing clinicians. The current volume is a first step in this direction and provides an excellent summary of the field to date."
--Margaret M. Bradley in CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY
"The book serves as a thorough recent review of cognitive approaches to psychopathology."
