Editorial Reviews

Review

"Treatment Plans and Interventions for Depression and Anxiety Disorders provides clinicians with essential guidelines to treat patients in the era of managed care. Seven psychiatric disorders are described and conceptualized in cognitive-behavioral terms. The authors then provided an unusually clear, reader-friendly description of how to assess and treat each disorder with illustrative case examples, and patient forms and handouts. It should prove very useful for clinicians or clinicians-in-training who want to learn how to conduct short-term treatment through an empirically validated approach." --Judith S. Beck, PhD, Director, Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy and Research

"This pragmatic handbook presents the nitty-gritty details of empirically supported cognitive-behavioral conceptualizations and interventions for clients with depression and anxiety. It will be particularly useful to clinicians functioning in the managed care environment. The authors are obviously astute and experienced therapists. Clinicians who read this book and follow its methods can feel confident they are providing top-quality care." --Jacqueline B. Persons, PhD, Director, San Francisco Bay Area Center for Cognitive Therapy, Oakland, California

"This book is a landmark contribution to the growing literature on cognitive therapy for mental disorders. It is reader-friendly and deals with complex issues in a clear, understandable fashion. It is just the answer for clinicians working in managed care settings as well as in private practice." --Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia

Format: Paperback
A great many books have been written about cognitive therapy, but few are as useful to the cognitive practitioner as this book by Robert Leahy and Stephen Holland. It is a book that is remarkable for its scholarship and distilled years of clinical acumen, and clinicians, graduate students, and psychiatrists in training will find it practical beyond measure. I am a great admirer of Leahy and Holland's previous work, and this new effort has exceeded my own heightened expectations for such a volume. The book is a compendium of information that is valuable beyond measure, and makes a profound claim on the attention of all serious cognitive therapists, and those who are in training to learn cognitive therapy. The book is also likely to attract a wide audience among teachers of cognitive therapy courses in graduate and medical schools, and internship and residency programs. Among the particular glories of this excellent book are that the reader gets easy and immediate access to "state of the art" treatments for depression and anxiety disorders, detailed treatment plans, a CD that allows printable forms for patients and therapist, a detailed list of cognitive therapy interventions, and medication charts. The book is a first rate summary of knowledge about disorders and their treatments, synthesized into usable form by two master cognitive therapists, and so it is likely to be of great value to clinicians, graduate students, and psychiatrists in training. Thus, the book by Leahy and Holland is key reference work that serious cognitive practitioners will want for their libraries, and that both experienced and novice therapists can find helpful.

I am a second year MSW student who works in a mental health clinic. I have found this book to be extremely helpful and practical in the treatment of depressive and anxiety disorders. My supervisor even purchased a copy of this book after she saw my work. Clients respond well to the interventions suggested, and they feel like they are finally being understood. It also forces the worker to be thorough in their work.

I have been practicing post Master's as Mental Health Therapist for 6 years and I found this book to be a helpful tool, particularly when first learning how to formulate treatment plans. The book is also well written and well organized. The primary interventions are CBT based. It does an excellent job at offering different treatment plans for different depression and anxiety disorders. I also appreciated the CD that offers worksheets to print out.

I'm a PhD candidate (clinical psych) and got this book based on a friend's recommendation. It is super helpful. It has brief sample case conceptualizations (mainly CBT, but other modalities when appropriate) and step by step treatment plans for different depression and anxiety disorders. It also has worksheets and a CD so you can print and use them whenever you want. It's easy reading, but not just fluff. Strongly recommend to anyone looking for a CBT treatment guide.
