Metacognitive therapy is based on the principle that worry and rumination are universal processes leading to emotional disorder. These processes are linked to erroneous beliefs about thinking and unhelpful self-regulation strategies.

Metacognitive Therapy: Distinctive Features is an introduction to the theoretical foundations and therapeutic principles of metacognitive therapy. Divided into two sections, Theory and Practice and using thirty key points, the authors explore how metacognitive therapy can allow people to escape from repetitive thinking patterns that often lead to prolonged psychological distress.

This book is a valuable resource for both students and practitioners wishing to develop a basic understanding of metacognitive therapy and how it compares and contrasts with traditional forms of cognitive behavioural therapy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book provides a skilful mix of theory and practice that should be essential reading for all wanting to learn more about MCT... I highly recommend it." - Hans M. Nordahl, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway

"The book is unique in that it expands upon traditional CBT and adds a dimension that may prove to establish metacognitive therapy (MCT) as a distinctive therapeutic technique. The approach offered in this book will make a definite contribution to the field of psychotherapy--for therapists who do not practice traditional CBT as well as for those who do. This book will be of particular value to persons practicing CBT who wish to understand more of the weaknesses (and presumably, therefore, the strengths) of the traditional CBT model.Represents a new paradigm in the treatment of mental disorders. Its foundations are rooted solidly in traditional psychotherapeutic thought (particularly psychoanalysis) yet also within our latest understanding of the developmental and neurological aspects of the brain. It is clearly a book for the seasoned and knowledgeable psychologist." - Richard H. Cox, President Emeritus/Professor of Forest Institute of Professional Psychology, in APA Journals, PsycCRITIQUES
