Schema Therapy - The CBT Distinctive Features Series


Product Description

Published UK, 2010
Schema Therapy (ST) combines cognitive-behavioural therapy with elements of interpersonal, experiential and psychodynamic therapies in order to help people with long-term mental health problems including personality disorders and chronic depression. ST suggests that many negative cognitive conditions are based on past experiences and therefore provides models for challenging and modifying negative thoughts and behaviours in order to provoke change. In this book the authors indicate the 30 distinctive features of ST and how the method fits into the broader CBT spectrum. Divided into two parts - theoretical and practical - this book provides a concise introduction for those new to the technique as well as a discussion on how it differs from the other cognitive-behavioural therapies for those experienced in the field.
