Cognitive Therapy of Anxiety Disorders: A Practice Manual and Conceptual Guide
This book emphasises the design and implementation of pure cognitive therapy interventions. There are general sections on assessment and basic cognitive therapy skills, as well as practical advice on designing and executing behavioural experiments, homework tasks, and verbal re-attribution methods. A useful appendix includes questionnaires and outcome measures, and a selection of material that can be copied for patients.
