Description

There are few comprehensive practical guidelines for the practitioner wishing to implement cognitive-behavioral strategies in an attempt to maximize therapeutic gains and prevent symptom recurrence. This book aims to fill the gap. Included are an overview of cognitive-behavior therapy and its relationship to maintenance and relapse, practical procedures to facilitate maintenance and prevent relapse, guidelines for therapists working with patients who have relapsed and several case examples.

"This book is an indispensable source for helping clients stay well after treatment. Practical and concise"
~Judith S. Beck, Ph.D.
