The first edition of this book remains one of very few titles to assist training by speaking directly to the learner rather than assuming a high level of knowledge and understanding. Feedback has been strong and the interest in acquiring and applying these skills continues to grow, with the book used where training is offered. However, the first edition is based substantially on training developed eight years ago. The Second Edition updates it in line with advances in techniques and evidence. In particular, the title has been amended to replace the outdated 'Chronic Illness' with 'Long Term Conditions'. Similarly, 'CBT First Aid' has become a familiar phrase that will attract attention. Adjusting the subtitle will emphasize usefulness as a training and resource manual, reflecting a structural change that puts the book's exercises, previously distributed through the first edition, together in a coherent workbook format. Together with the inclusion of third wave CBT techniques and the development of IAPT, this should see sales grow significantly from the first edition.
