In this compact, richly detailed volume, 13 distinguished contributors show how CBT’s primary focus of identifying and changing maladaptive patterns of information processing and related behaviors is fully compatible with biological theories and treatments. In five chapters that illustrate the broadening reach and scope of CBT, these experts discuss :

• Schizophrenia

• Bipolar I disorder

• Computer-assisted CBT

• CBT for treating physical illnesses

• CBT for children and adolescents

« This volume spells out in beautiful detail the latest advances in the application of cognitive-behavior therapy, ranging front the severe mental disorders, schizophrenia and bipolar, to the recent approaches to people with physical illness and children and adolesçents, as well as advances in the delivery of cognitive therapy by new technologies. This review, based on empirically-supported treatments, is a necessary guide for clinicians, instructors, and researers.
