The success of cognitive behavioural approaches to treatment has led to a huge increase in published books, articles and reports. The student, the lecturer, the busy professional could all be forgiven for asking, ?What really matters, what are the key developments and trends in the concepts and practice of cognitive behaviour therapy?? This is the first book of an occasional series which answers just such a need for a collection of concise, stimulating and knowledgeable reviews of key developments in CBT. A wide readership in clinical psychology, psychiatry, nursing and counselling will appreciate the access this book offers to the latest ideas and research. No attempt is made to include exhaustive reviews of the literature; the authors have focused on what they think matters, and have been encouraged to be critical, and even controversial. Authors are asked to express opinions and value judgements, and to point to likely future developments. ?This collection of papers by leading lights in the field illuminates the successes as well as the difficulties encountered in theory and practice. The up-to-date evaluations provide a beacon for the busy practitioner, researcher, and student. As the first volume in a series it should prove to be a welcome addition to the library of professionals involved in the application of psychological strategies to understanding and treating psychological disorders.? Aaron T. Beck, M.D., University Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania Medical Center ?In this extraordinarily valuable collection of essays, leading scientist-practitioners and theoreticians speculate about developments on the very frontiers of our knowledge and their speculations should set an agenda for clinical and research activities in years to come. Tackling such varied topics provides thought-provoking reading that no clinician or clinical researcher could afford to miss. Paul Salkovskis, a senior figure in the field himself, has clearly put together a new kind of book that should make an extraordinary contribution.? David H. Barlow, Distinguished Professor, University at Albany, State University of New York
