This book has outlined important resistence in using CBT for our clients. For experienced clinican, this book can remind us of the complexity of the therapy, and also other significant factors from the client, and ourselves, of course, in influenzing the outcome and process of the CBT. This book needs reading and re-reading to deeper introspection for our daily practice.

Purchased so years ago, this text became of enormous when expanding my CB-T skill-sets. The powerful centrifugal core of this text places responsibility as the facilitator of change processes, thereby framing "resistance" as at least a bidirectional concept. The pre-scientific era, circa 1880 to 1984, considered to clients (payer) lack of change, as their RESISTANCE to mature, leaving the therapist (payee) free of responsibility.
This textbook became a major reference frame providing information, and continentally useful source, that was unexpected when purchased. All ways appreciating when a book become greater then expected, this gets a FIVE stare ratting.
