Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: Research, Practice, and Philosophy.

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy is a comprehensively revised and augmented text, based on Professor Sheldon's previous book, Behaviour Modification, but thoroughly expanded and updated to take into account recent developments in social work effectiveness research, psychotherapy, and clinical psychology, as well as the large-scale changes in the organization of social services.

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.
