A quick-reference, multi-media guide to using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to treat anxiety. From fundamental skills to more detailed clinical application across a number of different anxiety disorders—including panic, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, OCD, and specific phobias—this concise guide provides a user-friendly overview of CBT for anxiety so any clinician can begin to implement it with their patients. Techniques for early, middle, and end phases of treatment are covered, including goal-setting and collaborative therapeutic engagement with clients, as well as methods for interoceptive exposure, challenging avoidance, and employing the thought record.
Included in this comprehensive guide are a DVD of sample therapy sessions and clinical explication that describe how to implement the protocol, as well as a laminated pocket reminder card. An on-the-go package of practical tools that busy clinicians won’t want to be without.
