5.0 out of 5 stars Essential companion to workbook May 29, 2001
What makes this book so useful is that it assists the therapist in effectively guiding the client as s/he follows the workbook in dealing with his/her mood disorder. It shows how best to employ the workbook in therapy, help the client set goals, and individualize the exercises. It demonstrates its application not only to individuals but also to groups, brief therapy, and inpatient settings. Under each situational category, it provides a session by session description of the book's integration with therapy. What many therapists may find a boon are sample client-therapist dialogues, tips on engaging clients and maintaining collaboration, troubleshooting guides, and assignment reminders. Because of its flexibility, this cognitive program can be tailored to a range of diagnoses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Companion to the Workbook December 2, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Clinician's Guide is a useful companion to the Mind Over Mood workbook. The guide is especially helpful for graduate students and relatively new clinicians, if you are an experienced CBT clinician, this book is not essential, however, like most works there is good information to be gleaned here. Bottom line, the guide is helpful but not essential, simply going through the workbook yourself should provide you with enough practical experience to use the workbook effectively.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, concise and easy to read February 16, 2014
I read quite a few books on CBT. Most of the other books went in to too much detail about the history and science behind CBT and the scientific eveidence that supports it's value. If you are a person already convinced of the value of CBT this is the perfect book. It goes in to real life scenarios and walks you through each step of how to practice CBT in your daily life without any non sense. I use CBT most days in an iPhone app that perfectly reinforces all the lessons you will learn in this book, it is called MoodKit.

First of all, I want to commend the authors on the structure of this book. All too often clinical texts are dry, stale and difficult to take in at a glance. Not so with this manual. It has a very easy structure that lets you simply take in each page at a glance and intuitively understand the gist of the information. Another thing I like about this text is that it also involves the clinician in taking these methods and working on themselves. The steps are simple and straight to the point. Additionally, it provides information on how to make therapy successful and how to deal with difficult patients in a kind and compassionate manner. I recommend this to anyone who is interested in working with modern therapy technologies of CBT.
