- We can order this
Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy (TBCT) is a new model of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) that organizes standard cognitive and behavioural techniques in a step-by-step fashion, making CBT more easily mastered by the new therapist, more easily understood by the patients, and simpler to be implemented, whilst still maintaining flexibility and CBT's recognized effectiveness.
Dividing thirty key features into two parts: `Theory and Practice', this concise book explores the principles of TBCT, explains the techniques developed throughout TBCT therapy to change dysfunctional cognitions, andÃ£ provides a clear guide to the distinctive characteristics of TBCT.
Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy will be of interest to psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, therapists, counsellors and other professionals working in the field of mental health, plus those wanting to learn CBT.
Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy is part of the Distinctive Features series, which asks leading practitioners and theorists of the main CBT therapies to highlight the main features of their particular developing approach. The series as a whole will be essential reading for psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists of all orientations.

Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy (TBCT): Distinctive Features by Irismar Reis de Oliveira is an outstanding contribution to CBT. It is abundantly clear from the beginning chapter that the author is a master clinician. De Oliveira has developed an innovative, powerful, structured approach that can help clinicians change problematic styles of thinking and behaving. This volume is written in a highly accessible and scholarly manner, while providing the reader with countless clinical techniques and examples. Anyone interested in the new frontiers of cognitive therapy will benefit from reading this book and using the creative ideas that are expressed here. I highly recommend this creative new addition to the cognitive therapy library for clinicians at all levels of expertise. - Robert L. Leahy, Ph.D., Director, American Institute for Cognitive Therapy
"One of the challenges faced by every CBT therapist is working with patients whose harsh inner critic appears unrelenting and impervious to CBT change techniques. Such patients can appear destined to remain caught in an unending cycle of self-reproach, anger, shame, and ineffective problem-solving strategies. Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy targets these processes in a compassionate and innovative manner. Irismar Reis de Oliveira writes in a clear, wise, and accessible voice, as he concisely outlines a treatment model that effectively integrates experiential techniques into the more rationalist Beckian tradition. This book will likely appeal to therapists of all persuasions. Highly recommended." - Scott Temple, Ph.D. Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Iowa
Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy: Distinctive Features provides a first class accessible introduction to Dr Irismar Reis de Oliviera's recently developed innovation in CBT. Despite the book's brevity - a requirement for Professor Dryden's `Distinctive Features' series - there are surprisingly few sacrifices in comprehensiveness, covering theory, research and practice. The book is therefore more than just an overview, but a successful integration of a complex model, giving not only conceptual clarity, but also enabling intending practitioners to see how the method can be used, step by step, with clients. TBCT adds a powerful, evidence-based addition to methods for dealing with one of the most difficult challenges in CBT - core belief change. - Professor Peter Trower, PhD, FBPsS, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham
Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy represents a new generation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that has its foundation in CBT's core tenets and adds a rich overlay of theory, strategy, and technique. Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy: Distinctive Features is a must-read for clinicians who deliver CBT with sophistication and innovation to clients with entrenched beliefs about themselves, others, or the world around them. - Amy Wenzel, Clinical Psychologist - Author - Consultant, Clinical Assistant Professor, University of Pennsylvania, The Postpartum Stress Center, Adjunct Faculty, Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research, Certified Trainer-Consultant, Academy of Cognitive Therapy
