Cognitive Behaviour Therapy 100 Key Points and Techniques

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques is a crisp, concise elaboration of the 100 main features of the very popular and evidence-based CBT approach within the field of psychotherapy.

In recent decades CBT has been applied to an ever-increasing number of problems (including anxiety disorders, substance abuse and eating disorders) and populations (children, adolescents and older people). With newly incorporated material on supervision, this extensively revised and updated third edition covers CBT theory and practice. Divided into helpful sections, the topics covered include:

  • Misconceptions about CBT
