Promotional Information

Forget the old canard that psychotherapy is for the worried well. This is the Wright stuff -- a helpful, practical, readable book for clinicians ready to extend CBT to psychiatric patients with severe mental illness. The expert authors illustrate with video clips the CBT techniques for treating patients with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and severe and treatment-resistant depression. They explain how to use CBT in conjunction with medication to build an alliance with and help severely ill psychiatric patients address stigma, medication adherence, psychotic symptoms, and relapse prevention. I highly recommend it for therapists working with such patients. John C. Markowitz, M.D., New York State Psychiatric Institute, Weill Medical College of Cornell University As we know, most patients with psychotic disorders have symptoms and poor social functioning that more or less remain despite medication. More and more evidence-based investigations have demonstrated the efficacy of CBT. Worldwide, important clinical guidelines for psychotic disorders recommend that patients with these disorders receive CBT. Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Severe Mental Illness will promote the utility of CBT for severe mental disorders in clinical settings. This concise, practical book focuses on basic theory and common clinical skills of CBT and specific situations that arise in clinical practice. The rationale and operational procedures of CBT for patients are easy to understand, and are accompanied by extensive illustrations that psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and other interested professionals can use to learn practical skills. Zhanjiang Li, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor in Psychiatry and Clinical Psychology, Department of Psychiatry & Clinical Psychology, Beijing Anding Hospital, Capital Medical University Psychosis, bipolar disorder, and severe depression have been on the leading edge of CBT developments in recent years. This practical guide shows clinicians how to use CBT innovations to best advantage. Even therapists who do not specialize in working with severe mental illness will be able to manage many challenging clinical situations better thanks to the methods taught in this book. Christine A.

Reviews

The power of this guide is its integrated use of text and video to educate clinical providers about therapeutic techniques for managing challenging clinical situations and symptoms. Though the patients in the vignettes are not real, those portraying them use actual clinical cases to illustrate the difficulties encountered in working with severely mentally disordered patients. * Doody Enterprises, Inc. *
This innovative volume is a "must have" for clinicians who serve persons with schizophrenia, depression, and bipolar disorder. It is also a fine resource for peer support specialists to consider. Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Severe Mental Illness is truly an illustrated guide not only to read but to experience, including the DVD. * Yad M. Jabbarpour, M.D., Psychiatric Service *
