About this title

Synopsis:

The integration of behavioral and cognitive approaches to psychotherapy has much to offer in the treatment of a wide range of disabling conditions in psychiatry. In this book, the authors, both experienced clinicians and teachers, provide what they describe as a "tool-kit" for the management of patients using behavioral and cognitive psychotherapy. Based firmly on the work of the pioneers of behavioral and cognitive approaches, the authors illustrate the application of these principles through a vivid and instructive series of case histories. They show how, properly applied, behavioral and cognitive psychotherapy can contribute to the treatment and rehabilitation of even severely incapacitated patients. The cases discussed range from obsessive compulsive disorders and anxiety states to chronically disabled pationts with schizophrenia or depression. Chapters are also devoted to the use of these techniques in marital therapy, sex therapy, social skill training and the treatment of psychosomatic disorders. A comprehensive glossary of terms used in behavioral and cognitive therapy is provided for newcomers in the field. The emphasis is on practical work with patients for the alleviation of maladaptive or unwanted behavior and thoughts, and the authors also give guidance on some of the pitfalls to be avoided and on the concomitant use of medication. This book will be of value to mental health professionals training in the use of behavioral and cognitive psychotherapy.
