5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By H. Perera on July 25, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book is easy to read, providing a broad overview of contemporary behaviour therapy issues. Having read it cover to cover, I would recommend this book be read in conjunction with further, more detailed texts to flush out the finer details as the authors cover a number of therapy and models generally without going into much depth. However as a general introductory text, the authors have in my opinion delivered a useful package with elements of behaviour therapy successfully complimented by real-life examples of case studies and useful end-of-chapter summaries. The textbook comes with an additional student resource materials/participation worksheet booklet which unfortunately I did not find useful. A good book for the undergraduate level.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By John N. Fulmore on June 17, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I just got through using this text along with Beck's "Cognitive Therapy - basics and beyond." This is an informative text and gives a very broad overview of the various techniques that come under the title "Cognitive - Behavioral Therapy." If you are looking for a broad view - this would be the text, if you are looking for specific advice to apply to practice, choose another book.

This book is very useful in providing direct links of theory to practice. The text format utilizes practice activities and case reviews which allow for a clearer understanding of how behavioral techniques are utilized through multiple venues of practice.

A little dirty (something sticky on the cover). However, the inside is fantastic and that is what counts. Also, it arrived exactly when stated.
