There are many books that give us the basics of CBT. This one gives us the basics and beyond - what to do, when to do it, how to do it, and why we need to do it. Its mix of case material, techniques and illustrations (including truly enlightening videos of therapy in practice) make the book hard to put down. Whatever the disorder, whatever the age group, whatever the complexity - this book will help you to improve your practice. Consider it mandatory reading for any trainee, supervisor or clinician who takes patient care seriously. -- Professor Glenn Waller
An Introduction to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Skills and Applications has been a core text for learners, novice and experienced practitioners, and CBT educators alike since its first edition in 2007. All reputable CBT training programmes have this text on their essential reading lists. The third edition with its comprehensive new features such as the inclusion of videos, new case studies, additional exercises, and a focus on the cultural context of CBT will make what is already a great book indispensable. -- Pamela Myles * University of Reading *
This book is not just an introduction to CBT; it is the introduction to CBT. The depth of the authors' expertise as therapists, supervisors and trainers shines through and their knowledge is shared in an accessible way. The new edition includes several contemporary themes and also provides a companion website with video links. Quite simply, new students of CBT should start here. -- Dr Stephen Barton

This third edition contains all of the conciseness and clarity of the earlier editions, but with greater depth and scope. Any questions about how to use it in practice can be answered by using the demonstration videos and Companion Website. Comprehensive, authoritative, practical and friendly, this remains the essential guide to CBT.

-- Dave Roberts
