Counselling in a Nutshell
Cognitive/Behaviour Therapy | Counselling Training | Counselling and Psychotherapy (General)
Leading authors, Michael Neenan and Windy Dryden, explain the model and the core techniques used during the therapeutic process to:
- elicit and examine negative automatic thoughts
- uncover and explore underlying assumptions, rules and core beliefs (schemas); and
- maintain gains from therapy.
For newcomers to the subject, this revised and updated edition of Cognitive Therapy in a Nutshell provides the ideal place to start and a springboard to further study.
This book was both detailed and accessible. A useful and informative introduction to the subject.
A nicely prepared synopsis of CBT. Great supplemental reading.
Prefer the Frank Wills book
A really good book which does exactly what it says on the tin!!!
A very good concise summary of the Cogntive approach, but I really want this 'nutshell' type of book to cover a more generic Cognitive (and) Behavioural Approach i.e. "CBT in a Nutshell".
This is a well written book that explains many issues. However, the title 'in a nutshell' and size of this book suggests that it is a basic introductiob to the subject - it is not.
Recommended to students
This book is currently recommended to my 3rd and 4th year undergraduate psychiatric nursing students. They use it in the context of understanding how the concepts of CBT may be used in the creation, maintenence and termination of the therapeutic relationship with clients. .
An ideal text for our introductory courses in CBT. We like the format and style: short, consise without dumbing down.
An accessible introduction to Beck's Cognitive Therapy. This book accurately conveys the essence of Cognitive Therapy, with excellent use made of extracts from clinical encounters.
