Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

The CBT Handbook

This is a comprehensive resource of photocopiable worksheets to aid therapeutic intervention. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) aims to help people overcome their emotional difficulties through helping them identify and change their thoughts and behaviour. CBT has been evaluated for a wide range of presenting problems and evidence of its efficacy found for depression, panic, agoraphobia, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), specific phobia, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This eminently practical book provides more than 80 A4 photocopiable worksheets for cognitive behavioural therapists to use with clients. As well as covering the fundamental techniques of CBT, it supplies worksheets specific to presenting problems, such as OCD, panic and worry. Worksheets are essential tools in CBT. They record events and patterns, provide new information, and suggest new ways of thinking and acting. When and how to use a worksheet is determined by a number of factors: the formulation, the stage in therapy, the current focus of treatment, the reading and writing ability of the client and the wishes of the client. The use of worksheets in CBT is an ongoing learning process for both therapists and clients. This is a fantastic resource for all clinicians working within the cognitive behavioural model.

Tackling Health Anxiety

A CBT Handbook

Tackling Health Anxiety

This straightforward book explains how to deliver cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) for health anxiety in ordinary practice. Health anxiety is very common but it is often undetected, especially in medical settings where people are constantly looking for evidence of physical disease. The problem is that many people with this condition are more concerned with further tests and investigations to exclude physical illness than with addressing their own worries over health. The introduction of psychological treatment has to be handled sensitively if it is going to be successful. This book shows how it can be done. All clinicians - from nurses working in general practice, to consultant physicians - will recognise the scenarios Dr Tyrer uses to illustrate her practical approach to alleviating the distress felt by so many patients. All clinicians will value the time they can save by tackling their patients' health anxiety. This will be useful for liaison psychiatrists and, to some extent, for all healthcare professionals - especially general practitioners and nurses in primary care.

The CBT Workbook for Perfectionism

Evidence-Based Skills to Help You Let Go of Self-Criticism, Build Self-Esteem, and Find Balance

The CBT Workbook for Perfectionism

If you feel an intense pressure to be perfect, this evidence-based workbook offers real strategies based in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you develop a more balanced and healthy perspective. Do you hold yourself—and perhaps others—to extremely high standards? Do you procrastinate certain tasks because you’re afraid you won’t carry them out perfectly? If you’ve answered “yes” to one or both of these questions, chances are you’re a perfectionist. And while there’s nothing wrong with hard work and high standards, perfectionism can also take over your life if you let it. So, how can you find balance? With this workbook, you’ll identify the causes of your perfectionism and the ways it is negatively impacting your life. Rather than measuring your self-worth by productivity and accomplishments, you’ll learn to exercise self-compassion, and extend that compassion to others. You’ll also learn ways to prioritize the things that really matter to you, without focusing on attaining fixed goals. Life isn’t perfect, and neither are we. If you’re ready to break free from out-of-control perfectionism and start living a richer, fuller life, this workbook will help you get started.
