"The size of this book hides its comprehensive coverage of CB theory/practice. It certainly holds your hand through the topic but at a level that is appropriate for the students. Whilst not a beginners' guide, this text certainly covers all the basics and allows a student 'to hit the ground running'. I recommend this book to all and it definitely will form the basis of my teaching." -

Tony Barlow, Birmingham City University

"This book is a state of the art text on the application of CBT to Mental Health Care. It will have lasting value for novice and trained CBT practitoners who wish to work with clients with psychological disorders. A gem of a book." -

Professor Windy Dryden

"Amongst the plethora of recent introduction to CBT books, there is nothing like this gem. The authors have produced a fresh, contemporary, wide-ranging synthesis which stretches the boundaries of CBT - is there any other CBT book which has sections on marginalised groups, discussion of values and alternative research methodologies?" -

James Bennett-Levy, University of Sydney and Southern Cross University

"Reflecting the burgeoning field of CBT this ambitious book sets CBT in its political and social context, as well as embracing new topics and populations. Remarkably, the breadth of the text does not compromise its accessibility - it is recommended to both those who are new to CBT and to the experienced." -
