Review Text

  • By TT on 4 February 2015

    I am not a practitioner but suffer from GAD. Amazzing book with practical steps to follow to live a more peaceful life. Well worth a read, not as technical as i would have expected. So great.

    Good book for those with some CBT knowledge working with clients. Although you write a personal formulation using the model provided, this is still a manual for a therapist and as is the case with all manuels that attempt describe the human experience it has its limits !

    Great for my new job role. Arrived in good time and great condition, thanks

    This text has been written in such a manner as to make understanding the symtomology and treatment of GAD realtively straightforward, not necesarily easy but more or less straightforward.The book is laid out in chapters which build to a complete and easy to understand model for GAD with a robust rationale for the treatment plan it recomends.The chapters are clear, precise with excellent examples and models that you can use with clients, it provides plenty of easy to use handouts, provides plenty of exercies and homework examples as well as typical blocks to therapy and how to overcome them.Whilst some may argue that this will provide an overly manualized approach to GAD therapy, it certainly provides a roadmap for it's treatment and leaves plenty of scope to develop an individualized formulation.This book was a revelation to me as someone starting out as a CBT practitioner, and I'm sure will serve equally well people with more experience.

    excellent well written explanation of theory and model with treatment procedures. as a trainee high intensity worker (IAPT)am finding this an excellent textbook for my course and for working with clients with GAD. cannot as yet report on outcomes.

  • By Operations Director on 6 January 2010

    This book is informative and well laid out. For my assignments must helpful. For practise also a wealth of information.

  • By SM on 7 April 2010

    This book is really good for helping you to get started on treating "GAD". The chapters are laid out very clearly and in a logical order as is the session by session treatment plan. Also has the theory underpinning the treatment and although it is not a huge book, I am finding already that it is a book that I refer back to a lot when I need to check something out about GAD. It is of course the Dugas et al Model of GAD but really good introductory chapter describing this condition. Easy to read and I recommend for trainees in CBT.
