These demands are met by cognitive therapy in groups. Michael Free has developed an effective, tried-and-tested course of group therapy for depression and other emotional disorders, which can be used and adapted by mental health professionals to meet the needs of a wide range of clients and treatment services.
This book is a complete manual for a 12-week program of group therapy based on the cognitive therapy of Beck, Ellis, and McMullin.

An appendix contains masters for visual resources that can be directly photocopied, as can the handouts and forms for participants in the group therapy sessions.
