About the Author

Robert L. Leahy was educated at Yale University (B.A., M.S., Ph.D.) and at the Center for Cognitive Therapy at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School where he worked with Dr. Aaron Beck. He has taught at the New School for Social Research, New York University, Hofstra University, and is currently Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Cornell University Medical College. In 1985 he founded the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy in New York City where he and his staff provide training and services in cognitive therapy. Dr. Leahy has been Director of the Institute since its inception.


This volume-the first of its kind-is a treasure trove for clinicians, scholars, and researchers. Its vast scope includes the theory, technique, assessment, and treatment of cognitive therapy. -- Aaron T. Beck M.D., professor of psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine Dr. Leahy has provided a thoughtful, scholarly portrayal of cognitive therapy and its underpinnings. The chapter on the historical context of cognitive therapy is especially pleasing. This text will satisfy those who wish to connect therapeutic principles to basic research in psychology, as well as practitioners who seek concrete, sensible advice on how to implement cognitive therapy to help their patients. -- Robert J. DeRubeis A wonderfully practical guide to state-of-the-art practice of cognitive-behavioral assessment and treatment. Grounded in the author's substantial clinical experience, as well as a coherent theoretical base and current research findings, the text provides rich detail about clinical interventions and rationales for their use with depression, anxiety disorders, and couple relationship problems. Among the strengths of the book is Dr. Leahy's description of how short-term cognitive-behavioral approaches can easily be integrated into the work of therapists with differing theoretical orientations. Going far beyond a cookbook approach, Dr. Leahy demonstrates how the complexities of case formulation are addressed through developmental assessment of the patient and careful attention to issues of resistance and countertransference. This book is an excellent resource both for therapists who want to focus on the practice of cognitive therapy and those who want to broaden their repertoires with a variety of effective, relatively short-term therapeutic strategies. -- Norman B. Epstein
