Across the globe, cognitive and behavioural therapies (CBT) are used every day by a wide variety of health professionals including psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, and social workers to change peoples’ lives. Since 1995 the World Congress of Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies (WCBCT) has showcased the latest advances in CBT to an international professional audience.
Now for the first time this unique book draws together a veritable ‘who’s who’ of leading CBT researchers and practitioners presenting their work at the 2016 WCBCT. Over 190 leading researchers and practitioners from across Britain, Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia contribute to 53 concise and insightful essays summarising their work, where it fits in the broader field, clinical implications, and directions for future research and practice. Together they illustrate the tremendous capacity for CBT to contribute to the mental and physical wellbeing of people everywhere. Topics covered include: child, adolescent and youth mental health; anxiety; trauma, PTSD and grief; obesity and eating disorders; depression and bipolar disorders; obsessive compulsive and related disorders; psychosis; alcohol and substance misuse; health and chronic medical disorders; comorbidity; transdiagnostic issues; e-therapy; training, practice and access.
