Review:

A succinct, clear guide to the basics of CBT. (Dr Ann Hackmann)

I use this book in my teaching of Masters of Clinical Psychology students and they love it. It’s easy to read and follow, providing a great starting point for trainee psychologists to learn the basics of CBT. Students really grasp the concepts well and it increases their confidence in delivering therapy. (Dr Vivienne Lewis)

CBT for beginners initially appears to be a rather daunting concept when the text is rather large. However, the format of this text book provides a no nonsense and completely user-friendly directory for both student, academic and practitioner use.

I enjoyed the way in which each chapter is broken down, each section, concept and idea separated and highlighted and how each one has some key points at the end by way of an aid memoir. I will certainly be using this with counselling and communication students as it presents a series of case studies and scenarios which are relevant and accessible.

CBT for beginners is written in a way which does not compromise on academic and theoretical content but that breaks down important issues, challenges and practices so that the reader not only has an opportunity to reflect on what they have learnt but also ways in which practical skills might be applied.

(Tracie Trimmer-Platman)
