Review:
′This book has been published at the optimum time when references to CBT are ubiquitous, and understanding the principles of this widely publicised intervention is essential. A fine balance of the evidence base, therapeutic interventions and the practicalities of the key components of intervention promotes this text to a higher level of sophistication. Westbrook et al simplify and enhance understanding of the approach, inducting the reader into the common quandaries and complexities of interpersonal interactions, when one of two is assuming the role of a clinician is a position of power′ - Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy

`[This book] is written in a very readable plain English format that gives the reader an immediate grasp of the concepts... [and] a great insight into the CBT model in a very structured and practical way. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is curious about CBT. It is well reference for those who like to explore the theories and research aspect further. It covers guidelines for supervision which is rarely covered in counselling books and looks at the pros and cons involved′ - Eisteach, Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy

`There is much to commend this comprehensive work: it is engaging to read, accessible in style and honestly conveyed. I will certainly be including it as a key text for our university′s new CBT module next year. I am reminded once again that contemporary CBT is a therapy for the people; accessible, affordable, resourceful and client empowering′ - Therapy Today

`a worthwhile introduction to CBT and... a thorough overview of the approach that is well supported by research evidence. Written by experience practitioners in an accessible language, this book is recommended for those new to CBT. It is also a useful refresher for the more experienced therapist′ - Nursing Standard, 4 star review
