Авторы: William T. O'Donohue, Jane E. Fisher
Cognitive Behavior Therapy: Applying empirically supported techniques in your practice brings together the techniques as a study guide for practitioners. Each chapter is organized in a comprehensive manner, providing a considerable scope and utility of many individual techniques. Chapter one explains that 80 diverse techniques exist in cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), which creates an additional burden for therapists seeking to become skilled in them. Meanwhile, chapter two discusses psychological acceptance by examining the movement of promoting acceptance of suffering and how improvement results in quality of life rather than changing the client's negative experience. This movement of the models emphasizing acceptance versus change is empirically supported, thereby demonstrating that by trying to suppress thoughts a rebound effect will occur. Indeed, the research findings indicate that CBT thought-stopping might be ill advised. The problems with trying to restructure problematic thoughts using suppression could result in intensification, followed by the clients elaborating upon those thoughts. Cognitive therapists have challenged the theoretical argument that simply targeting thoughts to make effective changes may not be successful in the long term.
CBT includes specific aspects. First, CBT philosophically originated from behaviorism based on the key idea that science and psychology are combined. The second aspect is the theoretical framework that focuses on specific problems and assesses the principles that what makes the problem also creates the causes. The third aspect is the knowledge base that relies on group and individual experimental designs. Measurement in the therapeutic treatment and the skilled technical aspect of the therapist in the execution of the techniques are also key aspects. The research underscores the important relationship involving the measure of competence in the therapeutic result. Thereby giving rise to the importance of a skilled cognitive behavioral therapist. This further highlights the extent of therapy techniques needed to qualify as a clinician.
The book further provides beneficial exercises that clearly illustrate each therapeutic technique in a step-by-step manner. As such, CBT becomes a fundamental means for therapists and researchers using such specialized therapies. This handy book supplies empirically supported techniques that are useful for a broad array of problems, including sexual problems, panic disorder, depression, and skills acquisition for the developmentally delayed. The discussions detail ways in which to help clients with a variety of problems in everyday life and are an essential reference for therapists seeking to learn CBT techniques and how to apply them. The information is not limited and is designed be used in a step-by-step application. It includes more than 75 sections that go into great detail, discussing many of the issues as well as how therapists can incorporate the use of CBT treatments into their practice.
