Book Description

There is growing evidence that supports the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in treating a wide variety of psychiatric diseases. CBT has also been developed for use with more complicated patient populations and for different phases of psychiatric illness. This is an innovative product that is unlike any other ebook that is currently available on CBT because it is the only textbook on the subject to bear the Massachusetts General Hospital brand. The contributors to this handbook are some of the most highly regarded specialists in their respective fields. They are also actively involved in cutting-edge research aimed at determining the efficacy of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and locating the treatment’s mechanisms of action. The Massachusetts General Hospital Handbook of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (PDF) offers an in-depth coverage of the historical background of the development of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a complete review of relevant outcomes data, a survey of mechanisms by which CBT exerts its effect, and, most importantly, a “tool box” of cognitive behavioral therapy techniques and strategies that can be immediately implemented in clinicians’ practices.

The clinical practices of a broad base of front line mental health practitioners, such as therapists and psychiatrists, are reached and enhanced by The Massachusetts General Hospital Handbook of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This book is published by the Massachusetts General Hospital.

NOTE: The Massachusetts General Hospital Handbook of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is included in this product as a PDF. The ebook is included with this product. There are no access codes contained within.
