This book will set the standard for group-based CBT for years to come." - Zindel V.

I would definitely use this book in a graduate psychotherapy course." - Debra A. Hope, Anxiety Disorders Clinic, Department of Psychology, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, USA "The book is a must-read for beginning group therapists, providing in-depth coverage on how to perform behavioral strategies in a group, establish group rules, interact with problem members, work with a cotherapist, and decide between sticking with the agenda versus pursuing unplanned group interaction...We wholeheartedly recommend this book." - International Journal of Group Psychotherapy "This is the book I would have liked to be able to read when I started running CBT groups sixteen years ago...This is a considerably more sophisticated approach to group CBT than has previously been available in the literature...Will be a very valuable resource for professionals setting up and running CBT groups for a wide range of clients, as well as for professionals supervising CBT groups." - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews
