Very good book with case examples to assist practitioners development when working with people with Personality Disorders and implementing CBT techniques
An interesting text on how CBT can be used when working with personality issues. This is certainly a challenge that needs particular attention and would be useful for psychotherapists in any clinical setting.
Easy to read and systematic. The great book to introduce how CBT can cure personality disorders
Excellent for those wishing to specialise
Good material for working with this group. Will be using this for written material for next fall
Very useful for the mental health team workers giving an excellent overview of the role of CBT in the growing area of personality disorders.
An interesting text to support practice when working with clients with personality disorders. Would have liked it to be more formulation based in deciding interventions as teaching students in this way, therefore suggested as supplementary reading as information on personality disoreds helpful specifically. More useful to the post basic CBT course members.
An excellent overview of the relationship between the various Cognitive and Behavioural interventions which can be engineered to facilitate recovery from, and the inter-relationship between various personality disorders. Replete with schematic overviews, treatment plans and case study analysis - highly recommended for those embarking on a CBT career!
Gives clear outline on the use of CBT for personality disorders, especially written by CBT practitioners.
Fantastic book. CBT has traditionally had a poor record with clients with this common diagnosis. This book shows how practitioners can work effectively by working with a flexible yet faithful (to CBT) model
