Innovations in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy provides clinicians with a powerful arsenal of contemporary, creative, and innovative strategic interventions for use in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This book goes well beyond standard CBT texts by highlighting new developments in the field and advancing a new definition of CBT that reflects the field's evolution. Throughout these pages, clinicians will find empirical research to back up recommended strategies and discussion of ways to translate this research into their clinical practice. Readers can also turn to the book's website for valuable handouts, worksheets, and other downloadable tools.
