"This book is very well done... This workbook takes the issue of further examining the patient's feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. It does a good job of providing additional exercises that would also be helpful for the therapist to assign as part of his or her cognitive-behavior treatment program."--PsycCRITIQUES
