Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hofmann’s non-defensive and even-handed approach lends the book unprecedented breadth and depth, unbiased by allegiance to any proprietary model. His thoroughgoing commitment to science as the only legitimate guide to the growth of CBT makes this book the most powerful of its kind."  (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews, 2012)

“Nevertheless, this book is a great read and will serve as a permanent reference resource for anyone searching for an engaging introduction to modern CBT.”  (British Psychological Society, 2012)

"This well-produced book is clearly written and nicely illustrated. It starts off by presenting the basic tenets of CBT, and then describes how the approach can be applied to some of the most common mental health issues... this book would make an excellent core text for introducing trainees to the fundamentals of a CBT approach to common mental health problems." (The Psychologist, April 2012)

Review

An Introduction to Modern CBT by internationally known researcher and clinical psychologist Stefan Hofmann is exactly the right book for the busy clinician who wants to know the latest research, how it is relevant to clinical practice and what to do with patients who need help now. Written in a clear, compelling, and caring style, this book will be invaluable for graduate students interested in the application of empirically supported approaches – and for experienced clinicians who need to know the latest innovative CBT treatments. Each chapter provides a brief description of the disorder, relevant research findings, clear conceptualization of the problem, integrative CBT treatment drawing on the best practices available, and clinical case examples with helpful vignettes. This is a book that you will want to read – and use – on a regular basis. Hofmann is that unusual balance of scholar and clinician. You know from reading this book that his experience is with real people in the real world.
Robert L. Leahy, Director, American Institute of Cognitive Therapy, New York

Instead of a detailed treatment manual or a long chapter in a handbook, this beautifully written, up-to-the-minute, but succinct description of CBT, complete with case studies, will be all that many clinicians need to know as they approach each new case.  This resource will be valuable for training and should be on every clinician’s bookshelf.
David H. Barlow, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, and Founder and Director Emeritus, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University, USA

An elegantly simple book that takes a single model and shows students and professionals how to apply it to a range of common behavioral and mental health problems. Each disorder is fitted to the idea that maladaptive schemas and attention applied to triggering events can produce maladaptive cognitive appraisals that give rise to problematic emotion and behavior, and each intervention for these disorders are then placed in a particular part of the model. Clear, concise, and step by step, if you want to understand the cognitive model of psychopathology and treatment, there is no better book available.
Steven C. Hayes, Foundation Professor of Psychology, University of Nevada, and author of ‘Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life’

A world leader in the treatment of social phobia, Stefan Hofmann has written the ideal introductory guide to 21st century cognitive-behavior therapy. Lucid and accessible, An Introduction to Modern CBT will be especially valuable for students and for seasoned therapists keen to learn the latest evidence-based interventions for the most common problems therapists see today.
Richard J. McNally, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of ‘What is Mental Illness?’

While certain principles underlie the CBT treatment for the various psychiatric disorders, clinicians must understand the specific cognitive formulation of each disorder to understand how to implement effective treatment for a client with a given diagnosis. Dr. Hofmann provides such a guide in his excellent text. Both new and experienced clinicians will benefit from his clear explanations and guidelines for anxiety disorders, depression, alcohol abuse, sexual problems, pain, and insomnia.
Judith S. Beck, President, Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research

Format: Paperback
I have no educational background in psychology. Yet I found this book to be easy to read. I have to admit that there are some bits of the texts which I don't understand but I understand most of the contents.

The first time when I read this book, I highlighted the important contents.
When I feel mentally sick, I would go back to a particular relevant chapter and reread the highlight. This helps me to fight mental illness a lot.

A large part of the book is devoted to describe symptoms and treatments. It lists symptom 1, treatment 1 of symptom 1, treatment 2 of symptom 1, ..., symptom 2, treatment 1 of symptom 2, ...
So this book is really straight to the point on what a particular symptom is and what are the treatments for it. The many treatments can be self done which is very good.

I learn a lot from this book and find it helpful in my difficult time of mental illness.

As an Art therapy student, I am integrating some CBT communication techniques to the practice of art therapy. It is important to keep the mind open when thinking of approaches and to know that any approach is helpful and adaptable by a skillful therapist.
