Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a powerful and evidence-based treatment: for mental health conditions, and its applications continue to grow. However, the proliferation of protocols targeting DSM-defined psychiatric disorders can make training difficult and limit the integration of research and clinical practice. Based on the new standards set forth by the Inter-Organizational Task Force on Cognitive and Behavior Psychology Doctoral Education, this groundbreaking volume presents the core competencies of CBT in a way that embraces the behavioral, cognitive, and acceptance and mindfulness wings of this modality, and signals an important shift from syndrome based diagnosis and protocols toward transdiagnostic processes. Edited by Steven C. Hayes and Stefan G. Hofmann, and featuring contributions from luminaries in the field of behavioral science, Process Based CBI provides fundamental guidelines for integrating the science and philosophy of cognitive and behavioral traditions with a focus on transdiagnostic interventions. You'll gain a solid understanding of the core processes of CBT, as well as strategies for implementing these processes in practice for maximum efficacy. Most importantly, you'll find everything you need to help clients create real and lasting change. If you're a clinician or student, this is an essential and definitive resource for your professional library. Book jacket.
