"Many young clinicians are quite knowledgeable about research and clinical treatment protocols--but less sure about how to be a clinician. This book fills an important gap in the professional development of new practitioners. The authors provide a detailed, step-by-step guide to how to practice cognitive-behavioral therapy in the real world. Readers will benefit immensely from the book's specific ideas about case conceptualization; sample patient-therapist exchanges; troubleshooting tips; and guidance for continuing to develop one's professional skills and identity. An invaluable resource."--Robert L. Leahy, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Medical College of Cornell University
"How timely that this book arrived on my desk as I was searching yet again for the right text for my course on cognitive and behavioral practice for second-year MSW students! This volume fits the bill in addressing many of the issues that challenge beginning clinicians in general, and social workers in particular, in learning CBT. The step-by-step approach, extended case examples, and sample dialogues make the text very appealing for trainees early in their careers. Similarly, the checklists of strategies and the diagrams of CBT models are easy for readers to use. I only wish this text had been available years ago."--Gail Steketee, MSW, PhD, Boston University School of Social Work
"I wish this book had been available when I was a young clinician!"--Jacqueline B. Persons, PhD, San Francisco Bay Area Center for Cognitive Therapy

The authors are cogent in their explanations and illustrations of concepts. This book is the perfect introduction to CBT and will allow the practioner to benefit from more advanced resources, such as those offered by Dr. Robert Leahy (resources I highly recommend).
First class resource. A must have.
