This handbook shows the wide perspective cognitive-behavioural treatment can offer to health professionals, the vast majority of whom now recognize that cognitive behavioural procedures are very useful in treating many 'mental' disorders, even if certain disciplines continue to favour other kinds of treatment. This book offers a wide range of structured programmes for the treatment of various psychological/psychiatric disorders as classified by the DSM-IV. The layout will be familiar to the majority of health professionals in the description of mental disorders and their later treatment. It is divided into seven sections, covering anxiety disorders, sexual disorders, dissociative, somatoform, impulse control disorders, emotional disorders and psychotic and organic disorders. Throughout the twenty-three chapters, this book offers the health professional a structured guide with which to start tackling a whole series of 'mental' disorders and offers pointers as to where to find more detailed information. The programmes outlined should, it is hoped, prove more effective than previous approaches with lower economic costs and time investment for the patient and therapist.

Editorial Reviews

Jonathan Parker, University of Hull... it would pay practitioners who employ cognitive-behavioural strategies in their work to encourage their libraries, training departments and resources sections to invest in a copy. It is the kind of textbook that will continue to be consulted, referenced and employed well into the future. ... This book is highly recommended. It will continue in relevance and usefulness for many years to come as a reference work for specific programmes with particular psychological issues.Cognitive Behavioural Social Work ReviewSonia GatzanisIn this most impressive book, Vicente Caballo, of the University of Granada, has brought together a collection of chapters that cover a wide range of structured programmes for the treatment of various psychological/psychiatric disorders. ...this is a volume that will be found by practitioners to be most useful. Its very thorough treatment of the clinical problems that are included will ensure that it will be used and recommended widely.Behaviour Research and Therapy
