About the Author

Dr Alec Grant is Reader in Narrative Mental Health in the School of Health Sciences at the University of Brighton. He qualified as a mental health nurse in the mid-1970s and went on to study psychology, social science and psychotherapy. He is widely published in the fields of ethnography, autoethnography, narrative inquiry, clinical supervision, cognitive behavioural psychotherapy, and communication and interpersonal skills. His current and developing scholarly interests coalesce broadly in the area of narrative research, and postmodern and poststructural developments in qualitative inquiry, in mental health and other healthcare areas. Michael Townend is a Reader in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy at the University of Derby.


"The size of this book hides its comprehensive coverage of CB theory/practice. It certainly holds your hand through the topic but at a level that is appropriate for the students. Whilst not a beginners' guide, this text certainly covers all the basics and allows a student 'to hit the ground running'. I recommend this book to all and it definitely will form the basis of my teaching." - Tony Barlow, Birmingham City University

"This book is a state of the art text on the application of CBT to Mental Health Care. It will have lasting value for novice and trained CBT practitoners who wish to work with clients with psychological disorders. A gem of a book." - Professor Windy Dryden

"Amongst the plethora of recent introduction to CBT books, there is nothing like this gem. The authors have produced a fresh, contemporary, wide-ranging synthesis which stretches the boundaries of CBT - is there any other CBT book which has sections on marginalised groups, discussion of values and alternative research methodologies?" - James Bennett-Levy, University of Sydney and Southern Cross University

"Reflecting the burgeoning field of CBT this ambitious book sets CBT in its political and social context, as well as embracing new topics and populations. Remarkably, the breadth of the text does not compromise its accessibility - it is recommended to both those who are new to CBT and to the experienced." - Amanda Cole, Consultant Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist
