Metacognitive Therapy for Anxiety and Depression


Product Description

Published USA, 2011
Metacognitive Therapy
(MCT) is an innovative form of cognitive-behavioural therapy with a growing empirical evidence base. MCT developer Adrian Wells shows that much psychological distress results from how a person responds to negative thoughts and beliefs - for example, by ruminating or worrying - rather than the content of those thoughts. He presents practical techniques and specific protocols for addressing metacognitive processes to effectively treat generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and major depression. Special features include reproducible treatment plans and assessment and case formulation tools, plus a wealth of illustrative case material.

Adrian Wells is Professor of Clinical and Experimental Psychopathology at the University of Manchester, UK.
