About this book

One of the hallmarks of cognitive behavior therapy is its diversity today. Since its inception, over twenty five years ago, this once revolutionary approach to psychotherapy has grown to encompass treatments across the full range of psychological disorders. The Encyclopedia of Cognitive Behavior Therapy brings together all of the key aspects of this field distilling decades of clinical wisdom into one authoritative volume.

With a preface by Aaron T. Beck, founder of the cognitive approach, the Encyclopedia features entries by noted experts including Arthur Freeman, Windy Dryden, Marsha Linehan, Edna Foa, and Thomas Ollendick to name but a few, and reviews the latest empirical data on first-line therapies and combination approaches, to give readers both insights into clients’ problems and the most effective treatments available.

     •  Common disorders and conditions: anxiety, depression,
     OCD, phobias, sleep disturbance, eating disorders, grief, anger

     •  Essential components of treatment: the therapeutic relationship,
     case formulation, homework, relapse prevention

     •  Treatment methods: dialectical behavior therapy, REBT,
     paradoxical interventions, social skills training, stress inoculation,
     play therapy, CBT/medicine combinations

     •  Applications of CBT with specific populations: children,
     adolescents, couples, dually diagnosed clients, the elderly,
     veterans, refugees

     •  Emerging problems: Internet addiction, chronic pain, narcolepsy
      pathological gambling, jet lag

All entries feature reference lists and are cross-indexed.

The Encyclopedia of Cognitive Behavior Therapy capably fills practitioners’ and educators’ needs for an idea book, teaching text, or quick access to practical, workable interventions.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Readers interested in gaining information on ‘mainstream’ cognitive behavior theory (CBT) topics … will not be disappointed. However, the diversity of topics covered is broad enough that those interested in topics outside the mainstream are not likely to be disappointed either. Even seasoned CBT clinicians and researchers are likely to find applications of CBT in this volume that are new to them. … it provides information of interest to a wide range of readers – from novices to experts." (Christina S. McCrea, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 51 (8), 2006)

"Cognitive Behavior therapy (CBT) has been reported to be among the most widely practiced therapy techniques in the United States. … At approximately 450 pages, the encyclopedia is concise in size, yet comprehensive in scope. … A list of references for further research is provided at the end of every article. … it provides an excellent and broad overview and would fit the needs of students, therapists, or patients who wish to learn more about the applications of cognitive behavior therapy." (Lorraine Evans, ARBA online, March, 2007)
