Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: Research, Practice, and Philosophy.
Based on empirical evidence, the book is designed to give a thorough grounding in cognitive-behavioral methods and their application. Professor Sheldon makes a powerful case for the greater use of these therapies in full recognition of the pressures under which social workers have to operate.
The book offers a guide to assessment and therapeutic procedures, including methods of evaluation; a comprehensive review of the latest research on learning and cognition, examining the therapeutic implications of these studies; illustrations of the main methods of helping with case examples from social work practice; and consideration of the ethical implications of such methods as a part of main stream social work.
The author is Director of Applied Social Studies at Royal Holloway College, University of London.
