Written by some of the leading figures in the world of CBT for psychosis, CBT for Psychosis: Process-orientated Therapies and the Third Waveprovides the reader with a concise introduction to the field and brings them up-to-date with the latest developments. Taking a pragmatic view, the book includes coverage of the cognitive behavioural approaches the clinician or client is most likely to encounter.
Presented in three parts, CBT for Psychosis first explores theoretical perspectives on the third wave of cognitive behavioural therapies. Part two examines specific therapeutic approaches, including metacognitive training, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy, compassion focused therapy and the method of levels. Finally, part three presents two critical perspectives: the first offering a reflection on the experience of receiving CBT, and the second looking ahead to possible future developments.
Offering a cutting-edge collection of theoretical, therapeutic and critical perspectives, CBT for Psychosis will be of great interest to clinical and counselling psychologists, both practising and in training, as well as psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse therapists, occupational therapists and other healthcare professionals working with people experiencing psychosis.
