Building on its successful "read-see-do" approach, this second edition of Learning Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: An Illustrated Guide seamlessly combines 23 all-new videos with informative text and figures, charts, worksheets, checklists, and tables to help readers not only learn the essential skills of CBT but achieve competence in this important evidence-based treatment method.

Opening with an overview of core cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) theories and techniques, leading CBT practitioners then describe and demonstrate how to build effective therapeutic relationships with CBT, conceptualize a case with the CBT model, structure sessions, and resolve common problems encountered in CBT.

This updated, second edition of the best-selling and highly popular Learning Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy also features: • Ways to employ CBT to reduce suicide risk• Guidance on integrating therapies related to CBT—including dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, and well-being therapy—in the context of personality disorders and chronic or recurrent depression• An appendix of curated resources by the expert authors—recommended readings, computer programs, Web sites, videos, and organizations—to give readers access to the best resources in building competence in CBT practice

The all-new videos feature clinicians demonstrating methods in real-world settings and include new topics such as safety planning and uncovering and changing maladaptive schemas. Proven as one of the best teaching tools for building competence in CBT, this new edition will enrich readers' understanding and practice of CBT.

This book is one of my favorites. It is in the very top rank of CBT texts and stands alone in its masterful blending of text and video.
