Upon discovering that a client is suitable for cognitive therapy, often one must then ponder how to find a qualified therapist. Robert L. Leahy, Ph.D., clinical associate professor of psychology at Cornell University Medical School, has compiled many creative techniques to foster training in this modality. Cognitive Therapy Techniques: A Practitioner's Guide includes 84 reproducible client handouts and assessment tools. The book presents each technique with a description, questions to ask, therapist-client vignettes, homework assignments for recording and challenging cognitive distortions, strategies for overcoming a client's resistance, cross-referenced techniques, and a list of forms to assist a client in therapy. As expected, much attention is devoted to automatic self-denigrating thoughts, underlying assumptions, ruminations, syllogistic errors, and discussion of schema-focused therapy for problems of character pathology.
