About the author

Biography of Beck, Aaron T.

A native of Rhode Island, Aaron Beck had an early interest in psychology. After graduating from Brown University, he embarked on a career in medicine at Yale University with the intention of specializing in psychiatry. Dissatisfied with classical psychoanalysis, he turned to modified psychoanalytic approaches and was particularly influenced by ego psychology advanced by Rapaport. Ego psychology directed his interest in cognition, and over time Beck abandoned the psychoanalytic framework and formulated his own cognitive theory-behavior therapy for patients with depression and other psychiatric disorders.

He developed numerous measurement scales, including the Beck Depression Inventory, the Beck Hopelessness Scale, and the Self-Concept Test, which are widely used as diagnostic and research tools in the field. Beck continues to teach, consult, and write about the use of cognitive therapy in treating emotional disorders and other problems.

Book description

The leading text for students and practicing therapists who want to learn the fundamentals of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), this book is eminently practical and authoritative. In a highly accessible, step-by-step style, master clinician Judith S. Beck demonstrates how to engage patients, develop a sound case conceptualization, plan treatment, and structure sessions effectively. Core cognitive, behavioral, and experiential techniques are explicated and strategies are presented for troubleshooting difficulties and preventing relapse.

An extended case example and many vignettes and transcripts illustrate CBT in action. Seven reproducible clinical tools can also be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size (www.guilford.com/p/beck4). New to this edition: Reflects over 15 years of research advances and the author's ongoing experience as a clinician, teacher, and supervisor. Chapters on the evaluation session and behavioral activation. Increased emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, building on patients' strengths, and homework.

Now even more practical: features reproducible's and a sample case write-up. This book will be invaluable to clinicians and graduate students in all of the mental health disciplines, including clinical psychology, social work, psychiatry, and counseling. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level CBT and psychotherapy courses.
